Brighton & Hove Albion secured a second thumping victory in five days after recording a 4-0 success over mid table Queens Park Rangers at The Amex Stadium.
Going into last night’s round of Championship fixtures, Albion trailed second placed Burnley by two points but that gap has now been reduced to just goal difference after The Seagulls’ excellent victory combined with The Clarets’ 1-1 home draw with table toppers Middlesbrough.
A double from Anthony Knockaert and goals from Jiri Skalak and Connor Goldson gave Chris Hughton’s side their comprehensive victory and after the match fans took to Twitter to give their views on their side’s superb performance.
#bhafc more goals but again the back 5 stood firm to ensure another cleansheet particularly important in the 1st half when not at our best

In all the goalfest talk, can't forget how good trio of Stockdale/Dunk/Goldson have been. Letting the flair players do their thang #bhafc

To think, this season we've been on a 21 game unbeaten run.
Now we're on a 10 game unbeaten run and smashing in goals for fun. #BHAFC

We win 4-0 and aren't even on the front page of bbc football. You wouldn't think we were level with 2nd and 2 pts off top #bhafc
