Brighton & Hove Albion maintained the pressure on fellow promotion chasers Middlesbrough and Burnley after recording an excellent 5-0 demolition of Fulham at The Amex Stadium on Friday evening.
A hat-trick from Tomer Hemed and strikes from Bruno and Anthony Knockhaert sent Fulham to a crashing defeat as Albion proved that they are not feeling the heat of the Championship promotion race.
The result sees Chris Hughton’s side leapfrog Burnley into second position in the table and after the match Albion fans took to Twitter to give their views on a resounding performance.

Albion will retain their place in the automatic promotion positions if Burnley are defeated at Birmingham City this afternoon.
