Snaps from our clash with the Seagulls at the Amex...The Royals fell to a 3-0 defeat against table topping Brighton at the Amex in the tea-time kick-off on the south coast
After a strong start from the home side the Seagulls took the lead on the 35th minute. Striker Sam Baldock latched onto a well weighted ball over the top to fire home from close-range.
The Royals came out at the beginning of the second half on the front-foot, and Danny Williams went within a whisker of equalising when he saw his header blocked on the line by the Brighton defence.
Moments later however Brighton doubled their lead as the Seagulls went on the counter attack. Jamie Murphy burst through on goal to chip the ball into the back of the net and make the score 2-0.
Brighton added a third to their tally late-on when Anthony Knockaert fired a low effort into the bottom corner of Ali Al-Habsi's net.
