Birmingham City 1-2 Brighton & Hove Albion

Lewis Dunk

Lewis Dunk’s winning goal gave Brighton a fifth win in eight games

Brighton kept the pressure on their Championship automatic promotion rivals with victory at Birmingham, whose hopes of a play-off place all but ended.

Birmingham led when on-loan Northern Ireland striker Kyle Lafferty slotted in a debut goal, but a glancing Connor Goldson header drew Brighton level.

In-form defender Lewis Dunk then rose highest at a corner to nod Brighton ahead shortly after the break.

The Blues are 11 points off sixth while Brighton stay one point behind second.
