Seagulls beat Villa 3-0 to boost their own chances of snatching a play-off place

Tyler Hornby-Forbes, James Tilley and Henrik Rorvik Bjordal all scored in the second half as Brighton & Hove Albion beat high-flying Aston Villa 3-0 at The Amex Elite Football Performance Centre.

The victory prevented second-placed Villa from overtaking Blackburn Rovers at the top of the Division 2 table.

Hornby-Forbes (pictured) gave the Seagulls a 61st-minute lead, while his replacement Tilley added the second six minutes later.

Bjordal completed the scoring in the fifth minute of stoppage time to leave Brighton two points off the play-off zone in sixth.

The Seagulls also have a match in hand over fifth-placed Fulham.
