Jack Hinshelwood made a crucial goal-line save and then headed in his first Premier League goal, leading Brighton & Hove Albion to a come-from-behind 2-1 victory against Brentford on Wednesday.

The 18-year-old academy product scored in the 52nd minute, breaking the 1-1 deadlock at halftime. Hinshelwood found the net by heading in a cross from captain Pascal Gross into the bottom left corner.

Moments before his goal, Hinshelwood had made a vital block on the line to deny Yoane Wissa after Neal Maupay's shot was initially stopped.

With this win, Brighton climbed to seventh place with 25 points, while Brentford sits in 11th place with 19 points.

After their first real attack, the visitors took the lead with a penalty kick in the 27th minute. Top scorer Bryan Mbeumo calmly stroked home his eighth goal of the year as Jason Steele erred in the tackle.

When Jan Paul van Hecke dragged Vitaly Janelt down after he charged into the area, he was awarded the penalty.

Four minutes later, Gross scored the equalizer for Brighton with a left-footed shot into the bottom corner following a feed from Japanese winger Kaoru Mitoma.

A major blow to the Bees came in the 37th when Mbeumo went down and needed assistance, Wissa replacing him off the bench.
