A club statement concerning last night's travel disruption.

Brighton & Hove Albion would like to thank the majority of supporters from the club, and our visitors Aston Villa, for their patience when travelling home by train from last night's match.

With a capacity crowd at the Amex, Southern Rail made several late and unannounced cancellations just prior to the end of last night's match creating chaos for those using the train to get home.


Albion chief executive Paul Barber said, "We would like to thank our fans, but also the supporters of Aston Villa, for their patience and understanding in frustrating circumstances.

"I would also like to thank our operations team for their hard work in very testing circumstances, and Brighton & Hove Buses for their assistance.

"It's totally unacceptable from Southern Rail to leave passengers stranded in this way and we will be demanding a full explanation from them as to why they so badly let down supporters of both clubs."
