United's seven game winning run in all competitions came to an abrupt end on Monday night, as a goal in each half by the visitors deservedly saw the points heading to Sussex at full time.

What proved to be an all-too rare scoring chance for the home side saw Owen Gallacher denied from close in on ten minutes - only for Brighton to net from their first meaningful attack moments later. 

The visitors led at in the interval thanks to that low effort from Aaron Connery and only a reflex stop by Magpies goalkeeper Nathan Harker denied the Albion striker a second on 58 minutes.

However Harker was unable to prevent a second goal seven minutes later; blocking an initial effort from Max Sanders only for team mate Tyler Forbes to force the rebound in at the second attempt.

A 50/50 challenge between United's Owen Bailey and Archie Davies then saw the visiting player stretchered off although the referee dismissed calls for a card, his comment that "it was a proper tackle" clearly audible to those present.

Harker then got a foot in the way of a low Sanders shot deep into seven minutes of additional time, before the home side passed up the chance of a consolation goal  during the final seconds - Tyrique Bartlett and Victor Fernandez both seeing close range shots blocked.
