Brighton midfielder nets twice to see off Middlesbrough 3-0 as his side reach PL2 Division 2 play-off final

Vitkor Gyokeres scored twice as Brighton & Hove Albion beat 10-man Middlesbrough 3-0 at Amex Stadium to reach the PL2 Division 2 play-off final.

After a goalless first half, Brighton broke the deadlock on 71 minutes when Gyokeres headed in a George Cox cross.

Five minutes later, Boro captain Tom Brewitt was sent off for a foul on Aaron Connolly.

The Seagulls doubled through Henrik Rorvik Bjordal and, with 10 minutes remaining, Gyokeres got his second after a solo run.

Brighton will face Aston Villa or Reading, who contest the other semi-final at Villa Park on Tuesday evening.
