2. The Seagulls have started the better of the two teams. They’re pressing Leeds high and enjoying early possession.

3. The first surge forward by the Whites. Summerville - who is on the left - gets at his man. He feeds Hjelde to the byline and the wing-back delivers a ball into the box but it’s caught by McGill in goal.

5. Good build-up from the Whites. Miller gets down the right hand side and a Brighton defender slides in. Corner ball.

6. Greenwood delivers the ball. It’s nodded away but only as far as Summerville. The winger takes a touch, opens his body but he curls his effort over the bar from just inside the box.

8. Brighton look to have fed a ball through behind the Leeds defence. Sutcliffe, though, gets himself between ball and man to win a free-kick and relieve the pressure.

9. Low ball in from the right after a Brighton throw. It’s Miller with it for the Seagulls, but there’s no support and Klaesson can collect.

10. Summerville and Greenwood with shots blocked from outside the box. Brighton break - Ferguson is through and in but Kenneh defends really well to stop the chance. Corner for Brighton.

12. The Seagulls starting to open up Leeds a little. Miller again for the visitors. He beats Sutcliffe down the left and delivers but Klaesson is there to claim it. It’s been all down the left hand side that have caused problems so far for the Whites.

15. Game hit a lull for a few minutes but Leeds win a free-kick - Summerville is taken out. Right on the edge of the box on the far side. Greenwood steps up but blasts it over the bar.

18. Brighton has a cross in after winning the ball back from Moore - he went down but the ref waves it away. Greenwood wins a corner at the other end.
