Brighton 2-3 Palace

November 20 2005

A brace from Dougie Freedman and a last minute goal from Jobi McAnuff gave Palace the victory over Brighton.

A win over arch-enemies Brighton is always a fantastic moment. But when it comes with the last kick of the game it's even sweeter - and Jobi McAnuff was Palace's hero.

The Seagulls broke the deadlock in the 22nd minute after Alexandre Frutos skinned Emmerson Boyce down the left and his cross was flicked into the net by Leon Knight.

Six minutes later, Palace equalised when Marco Reich's cross was hooked into the box by Clinton Morrison and Dougie Freedman headed home for his 100th Palace goal.

Brighton were awarded a penalty eight minutes into the second half after Gary Borrowdale pushed Jake Robinson in the area and Knight put away the spotkick. But the visitors refused to give up and Reich set up Freedman to drill an angled shot into the botTOM corner on the hour.

Gary Hart was sent off for Albion after two bookings in the 87th minute as the Londoners searched for a winner.

And it came in the fourth minute of injury time as Morrison teed up McAnuff who hit a low drive from the edge of the area rocketed into the botTOM of the net.

Palace: Kiraly, Ward, Boyce, Borrowdale, Hall, Watson (Andrews 78), Hughes, SOARES, Reich (McAnuff 62), Freedman, Morrison.

Not used: Black, Speroni.

Attendance: 7,273.
