Brighton & Hove Albion have maintained their 100% winning start to the season with a 3-1 victory away at Cardiff City.

The Seagulls went ahead five minutes before the break when Ashley Barnes hit home from 30 yards.

Barnes extended his side's lead just after the hour when he scored from the penalty spot after Craig Mackail-Smith had been brought down in the area.

Will Hoskins sealed the win in the final five minutes, before Peter Whittingham scored a consolation penalty for Malky Mackay's side.

Albion next face Blackpool at home on Saturday, while Cardiff take a trip to Burnley.
