Steve Sidwell scored a stunning 50-yard goal as Brighton beat Bristol City 2-0 at Ashton Gate in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday evening. Randy Johnson Jersey . Jamie Murphy doubled the lead with a deflected effort as Chris Hughtons men won their fourth game in a row and made it four matches without conceding in a clash which will be remembered for the audacious strike by Sidwell. The result keeps the Seagulls in second place, four points behind Newcastle - who beat Cardiff 2-1 earlier in the day to maintain their lead at the top - and also means they are unbeaten in their last 10 league games. It was a frantic opening five minutes to the game, with Tammy Abraham posing the most danger with his pace and movement and the on-loan Chelsea star played a wonderful reverse pass into the path of Lee Tomlin, but he was unable to make the most of it and blasted wide. Brightons Steve Sidwell scored from the halfway line to opening the scoring against Bristol City Brighton eventually settled into the game, but it was still the Robins controlling possession, former Middlesbrough star Gary ONeil dictating proceedings in the middle of the park.But, when Korey Smith lost the ball just near the halfway line, Sidwell produced a moment of magic to put Brighton into a 13th-minute lead after winning back possession, he looked up and hit a left-footed strike past a stranded Richard ODonnell, who was well of his line for his first goal since April.The 33-year-old, formerly of Reading, Chelsea and Aston Villa, then ran to the sidelines with his team-mates to celebrate by holding up the shirt of the absent Anthony Knockaert, who was grieving following the death of his father.Despite their bright start, Bristol City were rocked by that goal and failed to recover sufficiently and several minutes later found themselves two-down courtesy of a Murphy strike. Bristol City manager Lee Johnson was critical of the way his side performed The Scotland winger - who was causing all sorts of problems on the wing - cut in from the left and after feigning to shoot, eventually did and found the bottom corner via a deflection to give Brighton complete control.Knowing they needed to improve, Bristol City came out, determined to reduce the deficit and get back into the game, but Hordur Magnusson wasted an opportunity when he headed right into the arms of David Stockdale. Down the other end, Brighton were still hoping to increase their own advantage and Glenn Murray - who was leading the line well - turned superbly before finding Jiri Skalak, who could only hit a stinging drive to warm the palms of ODonnell.Veteran forward Aaron Wilbraham came on to offer some much needed support to Abraham and there was a moment of worry for Bristol City, when ONeil went down momentarily after taking a high boot to the jaw. Brighton manager Chris Hughton praised the dominant nature of his sides victory The introduction of Wilbraham was giving the Brighton defence something different to think about and he should have been awarded a penalty after he was clearly fouled by defender Shane Duffy, but the referee was not interested, despite the strikers protests.Substitute Tomer Hemed ignored the calls of his colleagues and blasted one final effort high into the stands, but it did not matter as Brighton left with the victory and Bristol City slipped out of the play-off places. Brighton vs A Villa November 18, 2016, 7:00pm Live on Get Sky Sports Get a Sky Sports pass Following the match, Brighton boss Hughton told Sky Sports that Sidwells strike had settled his sides nerves.It was one of those strikes, where as soon as he hit it, I knew it was in.

With second-place Roma losing 4-1 at Catania, Juventus eight-point lead became insurmountable because Roma only has two matches remaining. Juventus, which has three games to play, can celebrate when it hosts Atalanta on Monday although the Turin squads players and coach Antonio Conte were already seen celebrating at their team hotel wearing championship T-shirts. "Its much more satisfying when you win on the pitch. But its still very gratifying," Juventus captain Gianluigi Buffon said. Also, AC Milan got a 65th-minute goal from Netherlands midfielder Nigel de Jong to beat Inter Milan 1-0 in the city derby and stay in the hunt for a Europa League spot. Inter remained fifth while Milan moved level with Parma in seventh. The fourth, fifth and sixth-place finishers will qualify for the Europa League. Milan and Parma are one point behind Torino, which won 1-0 at Chievo Verona with an own goal from Gennaro Sardo in the 54th. The title was a bit of a consolation for Juventus after it was eliminated from the Europa League semifinals by Benfica on Thursday -- missing out on the final in its home stadium. "I was sleeping, resting up for tomorrows match," said striker Carlos Tevez, who leads Juve with 19 goals in 31 matches, on Sky TV. "But my teammates woke me up and there was a lot of excitement. Although I was hoping to celebrate the title before our fans tomorrow." In Sicily, Mariano Izco scored for Catania in the 26th and 34th minutes. Gonzalo Bergessio also netted for the hosts in the 55th after Roma captain Francesco Totti pulled one back in the 37th. Then Pablo Barrientos added another for Catania in the 79th. The loss ended Romas nine-match winning streak, and the Giallorossi put up little resistaance against a Catania side fighting to avoid relegation. David Peralta Jersey. Roma, which had already clinched second place and the last direct Champions League berth, was hoping to keep the title race open until next weekend when it hosts Juve. However, Roma coach Rudi Garcia said Saturday the title race was over and complimented Juve on its near-perfect season. "We did everything wrong today," Roma coach Rudi Garcia said. "The only thing I didnt get wrong was when I said yesterday that the season was over. Although I wasnt expecting a match like this. ... Ill expect a response next Sunday." Juventus has won all 17 of its home matches and lost only two away games. Both Tevez, who signed from Manchester City, and striker partner Fernando Llorente (Athletic Bilbao) -- who has 15 goals -- joined Juventus before the start of this season and were key players in the title run. Juves defence featuring Italy stalwarts like Buffon in goal and defenders Giorgio Chiellini, Andrea Barzagli and Leonardo Bonucci was just as solid. And midfield maestro Andrea Pirlo is still performing near his best at 34. There was controversy two years ago when Juventus celebrated what it claimed was its 30th title, although it actually only had 28 championships then since two were revoked following a 2006 match-fixing scandal. Its the first time Juventus has won three straight since taking five consecutive titles from 1931-5. In Milan, the Rossoneri dominated the first half but had nothing but a shot off the crossbar from Kaka to show for it. Midway through the second half, though, De Jong rose to meet a pinpoint cross from Mario Balotelli with a perfect header for the decider. It was De Jongs first goal in all competitions this season. Elsewhere Sunday, it was: Genoa 0, Bologna 0; Parma 2, Sampdoria 0; and Udinese 5, Livorno 3. ' ' '
