The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

BRIGHTON’S re­lent­less early sea­son March con­tin­ues – thanks to a young­ster named Solly and vet­eran striker Bobby Zamora.

The two play­ers at op­pos­ing ends of their ca­reers got the goals to send Chris Hughton’s un­beaten Seag­ulls sor­ing back to the top of the ta­ble.

Eng­land un­der-21 star­let March pro­duced a stun­ning solo per­for­mance, topped off by his first half goal, to take the man of the match hon­ours – only four years af­ter turn­ing out for non­league Lewes.

But it needed Zamora’s preda­tory in­stincts to plun­der a win­ner Brighton fully de­served early in the sec­ond half.

Brighton are now 19 games un­beaten go­ing back to last sea­son and boss Hughton even had the lux­ury of bring­ing Manch­ester United loa­nee James Wil­son off the bench in the sec­ond half.

The sign­ings of Wil­son and Wolves winger Ra­jiv van La Parra have added ex­tra depth to a squad al­ready brim­ming with con­fi­dence.
