Cardiff boosted their hopes of a Premier League great escape with a vital 2-0 victory which increases the relegation fears of fellow strugglers Brighton.

Cardiff City were the opponents, and Nathaniel Mendez-Laing and Sean Morrison scored the goals as Neil Warnock's side to put pressure on the Brighton.

Cardiff were then able to celebrate a potentially priceless victory that takes them to 31 points from 34 games, now two behind Brighton on 33 from 33.

"It gives them hope and knowing them they'll be thinking we can win the next four games!"

The Seagulls do still have a game in hand compared to Cardiff, although their run-in includes trips to Tottenham and Arsenal, while Manchester City visit the south coast on the final day.

With Liverpool and Manchester United still to come this season, anything but a win would have been disastrous for Cardiff.

Kawhi Leonard led the team with 25 points and six rebounds while Pascal Siakam added 24 points and nine rebounds. Lowry came out flying and finished the game with 22 points, 7 assists and 2 three-pointers on 61.5% shooting.

"I can't say anything better about the players".

Brighton had a strong claim for a spot-kick when Lewis Dunk was hauled down by Bruno Ecuele Manga, but the host's appeals were ignored by referee Andre Marriner.

Attacking intent was in no short supply from the off - Solly March twice drilling wide either side of a wayward Glenn Murray effort, while Joe Bennett went close with a looping cross-shot at the other end.

But Warnock's decision to recall Mendez-Laing was rewarded in the 22nd minute when he drove forward on the counter-attack, exchanged passes with Junior Hoilett and curled a superb strike into the top corner from 20 yards. The 5-0 defeat to Bournemouth last Saturday should be the most concerning for Chris Hughton because before that result, the Cherries had only won four away games all season.

The visitors doubled their advantage five minutes after the restart.

Topped off by two smart goals, this was a performance of bravery, intensity and intelligence - three words that nobody would use to describe a Brighton side apparently sleep-walking into the Championship.
