Seagulls shot down

Crystal Palace's reserves got one over old foes Brighton with a 2-1 home victory.

Paul Ifill and Ryan Hall - returning from his loan spell with Dagenham & Redbridge - scored either side of Joe Gatting's effort for the visitors.

The match saw Ifill step up his comeback from injury, although a knock picked up before the break meant he had to be substituted.

Midfielder Neil Danns, Tony Craig and Jeff Hughes also started for the second string.

Ifill, playing in attack with Ben Kudjodji, put Palace in front after 13 minutes when he converted Ashley-Paul Robinson's cross into the bottom corner from 12 yards.

On the half hour mark, the Seagulls equalised through Gatting who nodded Jake Sweeney's cross past trialist keeper Joe Wooley.

Twelve minutes from time, Hall grabbed the winning goal with a long-range shot from outside the area which moves Palace up to third in the table.

Palace: Wooley, Abnett, Hughes, Smith, Dalhouse, Craig, Robinson, Danns, Kudjodji, Ifill (Cadogan 45), Hall.

Not used: Comley, Clyne, Edwards, Adelakun.
