#10in10: Brighton & Hove Albion go top of the Sky Bet Championship with 2-0 win over Leeds United

9 December 2016

Brighton & Hove Albion kicked off Sky Sports' #10in10 marathon by beating fellow highflyers Leeds United 2-0 at the Amex Stadium.

Penalties in each half from Glenn Murray and Tomer Hemed were enough to seal all three points, as the former also moved to second in the divisional goalscoring charts, with 11 this term.

Leeds also had Kalvin Phillips sent off in the awarding of the first penalty, after he handled the ball on his own goalline, as they fell to just their second defeat in eight Championship games.

Brighton now top the standings going into Matchday 20, and will remain there should Newcastle United fail to beat Birmingham City on Saturday.

We have new leaders of the @SkyBetChamp this evening!

It’s over to @NUFC now…
