Result: Derby County earn win at Brighton & Hove Albion

Derby County win their first match of the Championship season with a 2-1 victory at Brighton & Hove Albion.

Derby County have picked up their first win of the Championship season with a 2-1 victory at Brighton & Hove Albion.

The result means that new Brighton boss Oscar Garcia has lost all three of his competitive matches since taking charge of the club.

The deadlock was broken by the home side on 17 minutes when Leonardo Ulloa stooped at the back post to head in Inigo Calderon's cross.

However, Derby grabbed an equaliser midway through the first half when Chris Martin made a run to the near post before poking in.

It took the visitors just two minutes after the restart to get themselves in front, thanks to Martin's simple finish from Kieron Freeman's cross.

Paul Coutts had the chance to seal the win for Rams on 67 minutes, but he fired wide following a counter-attack.

Meanwhile, goalkeeper Lee Grant kept out Kemy Agustien's rasping drive at the other end.
