2015/16 SEASON REVIEW: SEPTEMBER

2 June 2016

A look back at the second month of the season.


Brighton & Hove Albion continued their bright start to the season with eight points out of possible 12 in September.

The club paid a moving tribute to those who lost their lives in the Shoreham air disaster, including Jacob Schilt and Matt Grimstone, ahead of the opening match of the month at home to Hull City.



The game itself was decided after just five minutes, as Tomer Hemed notched the winner

Brighton then extended their lead at the top of the Championship to five points against Rotherham, running out 2-1 winners. Hemed and Dale Stephens scored the goals to beat the Millers.

Next up was Wolves away and even though Albion picked up their fifth clean sheet in 10 games, it proved to be a frustrating afternoon for Hughton’s men.

Despite a dominant display, the Seagulls could not find their way past a resolute Wolves defence and Hemed saw his first-half penalty saved by Emiliano Martinez. The hosts ended the match with ten men, after Conor Coady was shown a straight red as Albion remained top of the league by three points.  



The final game of September saw more frustration for Albion, as they were held to a 2-2 draw by Bolton Wanderers at the Macron Stadium.

Brighton twice took the lead through Dale Stephens and Jamie Murphy, but were pegged back on each occasion by Neil Danns and Gary Madine. The latter’s strike earned the Trotters a point in stoppage time, while the Seagulls ended the game with ten men after Murphy’s sending off.
