A late goal from Ben Barclay was enough for Brighton & Hove Albion to come from behind and beat Blackburn Rovers 2-1.

Blackburn took the lead after three minutes when Okera Simmonds curled his free-kick into the bottom corner after being fouled outside the area.

The hosts equalised on 56 minutes when Aaron Connolly arrived at the near post to head in a cross from defender George Cox.

It looked as if the match would end level but Jordan Davies' corner from the left was nodded in by Barclay to earn all three points.

Brighton go third with 13 points following their win, while Blackburn, who remain winless, are bottom.
