PNE 2-0 Brighton

Brighton dropped below Newcastle to second in the Championship table after a 2-0 defeat by Preston North End.

Paul Huntington gave Preston the lead when he headed in Paul Gallagher’s free-kick at the near post.

Brighton improved after going behind, with Glenn Murray twice going close and Oliver Norwood firing just over.

But Callum Robinson fired in the hosts’ second, while Tomer Hemed missed a late penalty for the Seagulls as they failed to turn pressure into goals.
