Brighton fans react on Twitter to Manchester United loanee James Wilson's stunning display

Amex Stadium Brighton

Brighton and Hove Albion loan star James Wilson was in fine form at the Amex Stadium.

Brighton supporters have taken to social networking site Twitter in order to lavish praise on Manchester United loanee James Wilson following his display in the 3-2 win over Charlton Athletic.

The talented striker joined the Seagulls from United just over a week ago, moving to the Championship leaders on a season-long loan deal.

He is quite a coup for Brighton, and many supporters are already suggesting that he could be that missing 20-goal-a-season man to fire the South Coast outfit to promotion this season.

His stay at the Amex Stadium has already gotten off to a great start, with a win over Birmingham City followed up by a come-from-behind triumph over a battling Charlton Athletic side.

As per the table provided by Opta Stats, Wilson played a key role in Brighton’s comeback and his goal early in the second half is an early contender for Brighton’s best strike of the season.

The United ace picked up the ball in a deep position, seemingly bamboozled a number of Charlton defenders and fired past the goalkeeper to edge his side back into the game.

The Addicks took a shock two-goal lead within six minutes, yet following Wilson’s strike Brighton’s unbeaten run wasn’t going to end as relentless pressure was finally rewarded late on.

Bobby Zamora and Tommer Hemed completed the turnaround, yet impressive youngster Solly March and loanee Wilson were the real catalysts for the Seagulls.

Aside from his goal, the Red Devils youngster took three shots, completed two successful take-ons, won four aerial duels and added four ball recoveries before departing to a standing ovation.

Brighton fans were naturally delighted with their victory after the full-time whistle, and plenty of supporters reserved special praise for Wilson while celebrating on social networking site Twiiter.
