Leonardo Ulloa scored the winner three minutes from time after El-Hadji Diouf had equalised Will Buckley's opener, only to be immediately sent off after gesturing towards the Albion fans.

Leeds had already seen Rodolph Austin red carded earlier in the game, while Brighton substitute Inigo Calderon was also dismissed in a highly-charged encounter at Elland Road.

"I am very pleased with the result. The Championship is becoming more and more difficult so we are delighted to be in the play-offs," said Poyet.

"We've lost Bruno Saltor injured so we are looking for a right-back to play in the next game and there are plenty of volunteers."

Calderon was sent off for fouling Diouf to give away the penalty which he duly scored from but Poyet was philosophical about the incident.

"Inigo will miss one match. If the penalty award was correct then probably the referee had to send him off, so it is about analysing the build-up to the penalty," he said.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
