Joao Teixeira scored the winner on his home debut as Albion beat Bolton today.

The Seagulls came from behind for a 2-1 success with Craig Mackail-Smith netting for the second successive game at the Amex.

They richly deserved their win after playing some attractive football, notably in the first half.

Matt Mills’ opener on 25 minutes for Wanderers, as he headed in a flighted free-kick, came against the run of play.

Mackail-Smith forced the Seagulls level from close range 12 minutes later as he latched on to a low cross from Inigo Calderon after one of several good moves down the right involving Bruno.

Wanderers goalkeeper Adam Bogdan, who had earlier tipped a Mackail-Smith shot on to the bar was injured in trying to prevent the goal and had to be replaced.

His substitute Andy Lonergan was arguably at fault as Teixeira switched the ball inside on to his right foot and drilled a low shot through the keeper’s legs from close range on 64 minutes for what proved to be the winner.

Difference between this season and the last two is that we are banging in shots, 26 of them today, 11 on target, with the midfield contributing at last. Given that we don't have a recognised true centre forward playing after Ulloa' departure thats a great change that can only be attributed to the style and formation change implemented by Hyypia.

Nice result today, deservedly so, as it also was in midweek. So much for the Dougie Freedman shock that he touted before the game .

Very promising. With Stephens and March still to return the young Irish right back from Cork to sign (fingers crossed) and a "marquee" Striker signing to come, all looking good. Seagulls Seagulls!!

Hands up! A great win against a team possessing quality players. Bolton are surely much better than their lowly league placing at present. So pleased for CMS who is getting back his sharpness and appetite for the game. Suggest he continues to grow his hair and like Samson, he will regain his powers! Faith is being restored in the team and it must be said, our much maligned management team. Now for a cup run.

once tex and holla are truly match fit they will be a very scary proposition for many teams in this league with crofts and stevens too we should have plenty of goals from midfield.

Great result and performance all round. Well done the Seagulls!!
Well done Bruno as motm.
e seam to be creating chances now (bbc stats show 26 attempts on goal ) but we need to be converting more of these into gpals if we are to be pushing for a playoff place.
Hopefully still more signing to come before window closes.

CMS looks set to fire us back into the Top 6.

All the negativity of the last few weeks has evaporated in the face of 2 straight wins, a power charge up the table and still another week left to strengthen the squad still further.

Just mentioned on another thread... is this Bruno's niche position and CMS's ideal formation? The clouds have lifted and no-one has slated David Burke for days!

Good result and apart from a couple of tense moments, it was a deserved result. Makes me smile when Sussex Scum 40, chameleon-like, praises the play/result. What a joke he is!

Good result which we should have achieved at home from a team in Boltons position,positives coming from behind also the number of shots on goal hope we can continue this form against stronger teams in this division.

Following the Seagulls abroad on a computer is no substitute for being there, but following on both BBS Sport and Argus it was great to see so many shots on goal---pity more did not go in as goal difference could make all the difference!!. CMS seems to be on fire---do not get injured again. He seems to have a hunger for the game and if we do get a good striker lets hope they team up as a duel strike force to score plenty!! the new boys also seem to be slotting in well and quickly. UTA

Although I enjoyed our high table positions of the past two years - I have to say that this is the most exciting football in the opponents half we've witnessed for some time. Everyone seemed to enjoy the quicker movement and number of strikes on goal.

Joao Teixeira is real quality and great management by Sami to substitute him with 5 minutes left so he could milk the crowd's standing ovation which he so obviously enjoyed and will do great things for his confidence.

Well done to everyone today!

At last you do speak some wisdom, well done.
Well played to the team and the management who have promised us signings and asked us to be patient. Some of us have been and now we have been proved right, very embarrassing for the doom mongers.

I am more than happy for bruno to fill the wide right berth in midfield.
He & Calde have a great understanding in both attack & defence.

A real change in tactics from the very slow build up of the last two seasons, especially last year, where we had to watch some very boring matches. Difference is playing two wing backs, who push forward at every opportunity. Both Calderon and Bennett were regularly in the action, making space and crosses. Got the ball forward quickly and always looking for a forward pass rather than back to the goal keeper. Positive stuff. Add the real class of Texeira and KLL storming past defenders and we should have goals all season.
