Football Scores: Brentford 0-1 Brighton

Leonardo Trossard scored the winner late on just as the match with one of the boring football scores took place in the Premier League. The game was moving towards a goalless draw when the Belgian scored to give Brighton their third win of the season. It was a cagey affair with Trossard’s goal being just the second shot on target for the visitors in the game. Ivan Toney and Bryan Mbeumo came the closest for the hosts but neither forced keeper Robert Sanchez into a save. Brighton moves up to fourth in the table while Brentford moves down to 10th.

Managers Reaction

Brentford boss Thomas Frank: “I think that’s a very good example of the Premier League, we played an extremely tight game for 75 minutes, I felt we were slightly on top in terms of creating a bit more. The last 15 minutes Brighton got a bit more on top without being dangerous, then the goal in the 90th minute.”

Brighton boss Graham Potter: “I thought it was heading for 0-0, I felt we were on top at that point even though they were always in the game as well. We pushed and pushed and tried to control things better, we did that and it’s a great goal from Leo, a great individual piece of skill.”
