Crucial Premier League contest on Tuesday…16/04/2019

The Amex Stadium hosted a crucial Premier League contest on Tuesday evening when Brighton & Hove Albion met Cardiff City. Chris Hughton‘s ‘Seagulls’, who suffered a crushing five nil defeat at home to AFC Bournemouth on Saturday last, went down to another disappointing home defeat as the ‘Bluebirds’ earned a two nil victory with goals in each half. Neither AFC Bournemouth loanee Harry Arter or Greg Cunningham were in the visiting squad but Shane Duffy was in defence for the beaten hosts. The result sees Cardiff, who currently fill the one remaining relegation position, reduce the gap to fourth bottom Brighton to just two points but Brighton do have a game in hand.
