Adam Virgo celebrates his goal at Millwall five years ago

First published in Sport by

Albion have enjoyed some dramatic afternoons at Millwall in recent years.

And a man who now watches them from the press box was responsible for one of them.

Adam Virgo, who is making a name for himself as a media pundit with outlets including BBC Radio Sussex, headed this winning goal in February 2009.

Our footage shows how many fans witnessed the goal – from the top tier in the away end.

His strike came in the wake of Micky Adams’ sacking as Albion boss with the Seagulls under threat of relegation from League One.

The 1-0 win was one of five victories and two draws for the Seagulls in their last right trips to the Den.

There was a 2-1 win to take them top of the Championship last term, a last-gasp 1-0 success in the wake of Mark McGhee’s sacking in 2006-07, a penalty shoot out in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy and a 2-0 triumph which kept alive hope of avoiding the drop from the Championship in 2005-06.

Gary Alexander’s treble sent Albion to a 3-0 defeat on Boxing Day 2007, which was the last time they lost at Millwall.

Remember a great day out at the old Den, must have been late 70's I think. Albion supporters advised not to travel because of Millwall supporters reputation at the time. Very few of us there but we won 3-0 or 3 -1 from recollection and the great Nobby Horton scored. No trouble and to top a great day off Sussex won the Gillette Cup. Happy days
