Half-Time Report: Moses Odubajo, Andre Gray score as Brentford go into break a goal ahead

Gordon Greer grabs a goal back for Brighton shortly before half time, but they still trail Brentford 2-1 at the break of their Championship clash at Griffin Park.

Brentford look on course for their first home win of the season as they lead Brighton & Hove Albion 2-1 at the break of their Championship game at Griffin Park.

Brighton started in the ascendancy, and Andrew Crofts was unlucky to see his third-minute strike cannon back off the post.

The home fans were infuriated shortly after though, as the referee made the contentious decision to only book Lewis Dunk in the 13th minute after he pulled back an onrushing Andre Gray. Jota sent the resulting free kick just wide of the post.

Then, in the space of 60 seconds, two chances changed the shape of the game.

First, Sam Baldock rounded David Button, but saw his goalbound effort cleared off the line. Brentford immediately raced down the other end and went 1-0 up after a smart finish from Moses Odubajo.

Jota and Alan Judge both went close for the home side before Gray doubled their lead in the 32nd minute with a poacher's finish from close range.

Five minutes before the break, Gordon Greer gave a glimmer of hope to the away side as he thumped the ball home from close range at a corner to make it 2-1.
