Bobby Zamora's late winner handed Brighton and Hove Albion a 2-1 win over Leeds United.

Brighton and Hove Albion remain top of the Championship table following a late 2-1 win over Leeds United at Elland Road this afternoon.

Chris Hughton's men have enjoyed a remarkable start to the season, and that looked set to continue against Leeds when Solly March gave the Seagulls the lead.

However, Leeds hit back shortly after, with defender Liam Cooper equalising, guiding a header past David Stockdale from Alex Mowatt's free kick.

The Whites were second best throughout, with Brighton dominating possession and having over twice as many shots on goal - but as the game headed in to the final stages, it looked like Leeds would hang on for a point.

However, striker Bobby Zamora came off the bench to score the winning goal in the 89th minute - his first goal for Albion since 2003 having returned to the club this summer.

The result means Leeds remain without a home win this season, and are now 11 games without a win at Elland Road. The home woes continue for Uwe Rosler, and that has to worry the German - especially with just two wins in the Championship this season.

Rosler needs results, whether it's home or away, quickly. Otherwise, the pressure will certainly mount on him, and owner Massimo Cellino is hardly shy when it comes to replacing managers.
