Carlisle 0 – 2 Albion


Long away day for the Seagulls, I’m predicting a low score draw, hoping for a win by a single goal. Dean Cox is out of the squad, making way for Kevin Mcleod to regain a place on the bench.

Three minutes gone……FORSTER SCORES!!!! That’s his fourth in four (I think?). The old boy is in scorching form. What a start. Forster brought down in penalty area on 22 minutes, nothing given – Russell Slade is raging, bit of argy-bargy between the benches. Good game this. Half-time, best players so far (in order) are Adam El-Abd, Fozzy, Dicker, Dickinson, Arron Davies. Not too much to be alarmed about, Carlisle are a bit toothless. Another goal second half should put this one away.

Bit of early pressure from the home side in this second half, not surprising as they probably thought they had a safe home banker today. The announcer has just given the attendance at 5368 souls, 350-400 of those are travelling Seagulls, good effort! Adam El-Abd is playing really well, which is great news as he gets so much stick from our fans.

FORSTERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 2-0, LOVING IT!!!! Dickinson laid it on beautifully for the old boy and he slots it in. These two are beginning to look like some partnership. Gary Hart was warming up to replace Fozzy as well, and now is back in his tracky and back on the bench. I’m sure he’s not that bothered. Dicker shoots, it’s saved and Forster puts it in – offside, and Fozzy’s been booked for throwing the ball away. Piss off ref.

Hart on for Dicko on 75 mins. Forster looking for his hat-trick. I would love to give El-Abd my man of the match, but there’s no denying who’s pipped him (just) for me, it’s that man Nicky Forster. A fantastic result that fires us right up the table. And, erm, Crystal Palace 0 – 4 Scunthorpe is always good for a laugh too.

    Super game to listen to for a change and the old boy comes good again and that partnership IS looking very good (quietly whispers who’s this Murray guy) this result is one to build on and look forward to an unbeaten run
    onwards and upwards

    Yeah, we are looking top drawer in the striking stakes, but that does leave a slight worry – if Forster (who’s old and injury prone) or Dickinson get injured, where are the goals going to come from? The midfield need to start netting a few.

    A minor worry to be fair, the defence is looking the business now, and that WAS a big worry a few weeks ago. I’m happy for the 300+ who made their way up there for the game. Southend on saturday will be a cracker

    Cheers mate

    I have just watched the goals on video and that second one was the best goal I’v seen by an Albion player for years and made by Dickison superbly a great partnership in the making ………..but as long as they both stay fit as you say.
