On the 35th matchday in the Premier League, Brighton failed to visit Wolverhampton on Sunday to obtain full certainty about its preservation. In extremis it became 2-1 on Molineux.
Brighton knew what to do to maintain its position and shot the sharpest off the starting blocks. Captain Lewis Dunk (13.) gave the visitors the lead early in the game on a pass from Pascal Gross.
After the break, the same Dunk played the role of antihero by taking down a player who had broken through in minute 53, resulting in a logical red card. Brighton, with Leandro Trossard 58 minutes between the lines, held out until the final quarter. Adama Traore (76.) converted the predominance of the home team into the deserved equalizer.
Just after that goal, Leander Dendoncker was allowed to enter the playing field and he managed to win the win with his team. Morgan Ghibs-Whitte (90.) was crowned match winner.
Brighton occupies (for the time being) 15th place in the general classification with 37 points on three match days from the end. Wolverhampton occupies 12th place and is in safe harbor with eight points more. Number 18 Fulham has 27 points from 34 matches. When The Potters lose at home to number 17 Burnley on Monday, the rescue with a day delay is still a fact for The Seagulls.
On Saturday, Crystal Palace won 0-2 on a visit to the bottom of the league Sheffield United, which allowed them to ensure an extended stay in the Premier League. Christian Benteke signed after more than a minute with a deviated ball for the 0-1.
