Derby 1

A LAST-GASP James Wilson goal earned 10-man Brighton a point after Andreas Weimann’s 71st-minute goal had put Derby ahead in today’s Championship clash.

The result means Chris Hughton’s side will have to beat fellow title hopefuls Middlesbrough on the final day to guarantee promotion from the Championship, with the Seagulls currently third behind Boro on goal difference.

Meanwhile, Burnley have gained promotion to the Premier League after beating QPR today.
