Brighton 4-1 Huddersfield
(2nd March 2013, Championship, Amex Stadium)
Argentinian striker Leonardo Ulloa signed for Brighton in January 2013 from Almeria after hitting 39 goals in 90 league matches. He showed his goalscoring touch with a header on his debut against Arsenal in the FA Cup.
Ulloa latched onto a long pass from Inigo Calderon, and neatly rounded keeper Alex Smithies by sidestepping to the right. He then rolled the ball into the empty net despite the attention of two Terriers defenders.

Why this goal mattered
The 78th-minute effort sealed the only hat-trick scored at the Amex. It also helped Brighton to a third successive victory, giving the Seagulls a great chance of reaching the playoffs.
Ulloa was transferred to Leicester City in July 2014 in a club record £8 million deal.
