Brighton & Hove Albion 2-1 Derby County

Brighton & Hove Albion kept up the pressure on leaders Everton with a 2-1 win over Derby County that dented the Premier League 2 Division 1 title hopes of their opponents.

Bojan Radulovic headed Brighton into a 26th-minute lead at The People's Pension Stadium in Crawley after Derby goalkeeper Josh Barnes failed to deal with a cross.

Just before half-time, the hosts doubled their lead, Soufyan Ahannach nodding in Alex Cochrane's centre.

Derby pressed in the second half, but could only score in stoppage time through Cameron Cresswell's penalty.

The win keeps Brighton second on 33 points, four behind Everton, and sends Derby four points back in third.
