Half-Time Report: Brighton & Hove Albion lead Burton Albion comfortably at break

Brighton & Hove Albion are cruising as they lead Burton Albion 2-0 at the break of the League Cup third-round encounter.

Brighton & Hove Albion have taken a two-goal lead into the break of their League Cup third-round encounter at Burton Albion as goals from Rohan Ince and Kazenga LuaLua have given them a 2-0 advantage.

The League Two side almost went ahead after 15 minutes, but Lewis Dunk cleared off the line from Dominic Knowles's close-range shot.

However, the Championship side put themselves ahead just three minutes later when Ince nodded home from a yard out after a precise headed pass by Adam Chicksen.

LuaLua then forced Jon McLaughlin into a good save as the Championship side began to show their quality in the final third.

The diminutive striker made no mistake in the 37th minute though when he powered a long-range strike into the bottom corner after a penetrative run.
