While the Seagulls maintained their unbeaten start to the campaign with a 1-1 draw against Reading at the Madejski Stadium, Hull, Burnley, Middlesbrough and Derby all notched up maximum points. Hull ran out 2-0 victors at MK Dons, while Andre Gray netted twice as Burnley edged out Huddersfield Town 2-1.
