Brighton seal final play-off spot

Leonardo Ulloa's injury-time goal carried Brighton into the play-off places on an afternoon of high drama at the City Ground.

The Argentinian striker netted with a neat header to seal a 2-1 victory over Nottingham Forest and lift the Seagulls above Reading and into sixth place.

It was the second season running that another side had sneaked into the top six on the final day at the City Ground, with Leicester having done the same last year. However, a Forest side that were hampered by having as many 16 players injured, suspended, ill or unavailable, were unable to hold out against Oscar Garcia's team.

Forest had taken the lead in the 22nd minute through Matt Derbyshire, but saw Stephen Ward fire the visitors level, 
before Ulloa delighted the 
2,000 travelling fans with his 
late, late strike. - PA Sport.
