Rams extend winning run to four matches with victory at Brighton and claim pole position in Division 1

Jason Knight struck twice as Derby County moved to the top of Premier League 2 Division 1 with a 2-1 win at Brighton & Hove Albion.

Knight headed Derby in front on 60 minutes. And, although the Seagulls levelled almost immediately when Warren O’Hora scored following a corner, Knight netted again with 15 minutes left.

League leaders Derby, who have 20 points, are now eight matches unbeaten and have won their last four.

Brighton have 12 points and drop to sixth following Leicester City’s 3-0 win over Southampton on Friday night.
