ANNOUNCER: Epic third run action at the Amex Stadium today. Brighton and Hove Albion taking on Crystal Palace. It was Brighton who started the brightest. And it was an excellent opening goal from Dale Stephens. Busting into the box finding that near post Hennessey with no real chance of stopping a ball through the power. Dale Stephens' first goal of the season. His first goal in 361 days.
Speaking of bullet power, how about this Bakary Sako. From distance, the game was crying out for some quality. They got it from the [INAUDIBLE] International as Crystal Palace and the Eagles find themselves level in the tie.
73 minutes on the clock, bullet with a strike. Hits the post, it falls back out, of course, to March. He takes his time to run on Crystal Palace to finish that and eventually switched off. He uses his ability to get to the byline, try to cut it back.
Kayal picks up the ball on the third attempt. He gets the strikeout away but over the top of the crossbar. Major disappointment it was from Kayal. The acres of space and a lot of time to get his strike away, failing to hit the target.
Was there going to be a winner? Yes, there was and in comes the man of the moment, Glen Murray. A terrific career that has been goals galore all over it. And he got another one today but it was faintest of contacts that got him there. Tomer Hemed with a strike, earlier before that. And he should have done a lot better on one view, one attempt.
And here is the talking point. Beautiful delivery into the box. Mateju comes in from Hünemeier. And Glenn Murray at the back post, the faintest of contacts of the knee. Into the back of the net it goes. And the 34-year-old scoring the winning goal against his former club.
Here's your final match statistics. 18 shots overall from Brighton and Hove Albion. Only six of them on target. Crystal Palace had a decent amount of possession but failing to find that quality in front of goal, especially inside the penalty area. Bakary Sako with the only goal for Crystal Palace.
