Steve Mounie’s contentious red card proved the turning point as Brighton came from behind to win 2-1 at Huddersfield.
An eventful game saw its first goal inside the opening minute, when Bruno’s skewed clearance landed in his own area and was headed in by Mathias Jorgensen with only 54 seconds played.
Mounie was then shown a straight red by Michael Oliver for a high challenge on Yves Bissouma, leaving a mark halfway up the midfielder’s lower leg, which looked unintentional.
Brighton failed to press their advantage until the final seconds of the first half when Shane Duffy nodded in Solly March’s cross (45+4), and later on he turned provider again as Florin Andone scored his first goal for the club from another header (69) which would prove the winner.
