Brighton fans react on Twitter to Manchester United striker James Wilson's performance

Manchester United loanee James Wilson scored the winner for Brighton against Reading last night.

Brighton and Hove Albion beat Reading 1-0 last night to move into second place in the Championship.

Chris Hughton rotated his side, bringing in loanee James Wilson, and the Manchester United striker repaid his faith by scoring the winner.

The goal was Wilson's fourth of his loan spell for the Seagulls, and highlighted his poaching ability. 

These have come in eight starts, with a further nine appearances as a substitute. 

He last played 90 minutes back on January 1, with his previous goal coming against Huddersfield on January 23.

The England under-21 international is highly rated at United, and had he not been on loan, could have been featuring for the Red Devils due to their injury problems.

Last night showed his spell at Brighton is proving worthwhile for the club and himself, netting a decisive goal at a crucial time.

Brighton have lost just five games all season, and with nine games to go of the regular season, Wilson has put himself in a good position to play a more important role.

Here is a look at how supporters reacted to his strike...
