Brighton thought they had taken the lead inside the final quarter when Gross turned in Igor’s cross from inside the six-yard box, but the goal was disallowed after a VAR review adjudged Gross to be offside.

The visitors also had the ball in the net at the other end, though the offside flag denied John McGinn, who tucked away after the ball ricocheted kindly for him in the six-yard box.

However, it was Brighton who got the breakthrough in the 87th minute. After being awarded a penalty for a foul by Ezri Konsa on Adingra, Olsen guessed correctly to keep out Pedro’s spot-kick, but the Sweden international was helpless as the striker headed home the rebound to give Brighton victory.
