Pascal Gross's late goal sealed a thrilling 3-2 victory for Brighton & Hove Albion at 10-man Wolverhampton Wanderers in a rip-roaring Premier League clash on Saturday.
Wolves trailed to an early Adam Lallana goal, then led with goals by Goncalo Guedes and Ruben Neves, only for Kaoru Mitoma to level and Nelson Semedo to be red-carded -- all before halftime.

Brighton pressed hard for a winner after the break but Wolves resisted admirably until Gross fired high into the roof of the net in the 83rd minute.
"Three points in any Premier League match is huge," Lallana said. "[We were] a little bit relieved at the end. When they went down to 10 it proved more difficult..
"But we persisted and Pascal came up trumps again."
It was tough on Wolves, who had earlier named Spaniard Julen Lopetegui as their new manager, but Brighton deservedly backed up their performance in last week's victory over Chelsea to move into sixth place.
Stand-in manager Steve Davis, who will continue in charge until the Premier League breaks for the World Cup, has now lost four of the six matches since he replaced Bruno Lage.
Brighton have 21 points after 13 games played while Wolves are in 19th place with 10 points.
