Brighton 3-2 Ipswich

Town missed the chance to go top and remain third behind Bournemouth and Middlesbrough after a midweek defeat at lowly-placed Brighton.

Brighton started strongly and Sam Baldock got them off the mark in the 14th minute, cutting in from the left and smashing an unstoppable long-range strike past Bialkowski. Town were soon on level terms with a well-taken near-post finish by Daryl Murphy, assisted by a low cross from Noel Hunt. Liverpool loanee Teixerira restored Brighton's lead following a mazy run and deflected finish, and scored a second arriving in space in Town's area with a well-placed drive.

Substitute Freddie Sears reduced the arrears in the second half with a clinical finish for his first Town goal, but Brighton held on for a deserved three points.
