Anton Rodgers, George Barker and Lewis Dunk, all on Brighton's books, denied sexual assault and voyeurism at the Old Bailey in a trial which began on 21 January.

Both charges - relating to an incident involving a 19-year-old woman in July 2011 - were also denied by Steve Cook, who has since joined Bournemouth.

After more than 25 hours of deliberation jurors returned a not guilty verdict on the charge of voyeurism against Dunk.

But no other verdicts were reached, and Prosecutor Richard Barton told the court he would seek a retrial, provisionally set for April 22.

s it the same people that complain about Chelsea that complain about Mayweather? You should by now know what to expect from both, if you can't appreciate how good they are at nullifying their opponents then don't watch them.

do concede though, that getting rid of Luiz has made them less entertaining. In the same way that driving with both eyes open is less exciting, but probably a good idea.
