On This Day – One Game, Five Penalties

27-3-1989 On this day in 1989 Brighton took the short trip to Selhurst Park in South London for the Division Two game against Crystal Palace. The Eagles, with the deadly duo of Bright and Wright, where too strong for the Seagulls and won the game 2-1. The star of the show was referee Kelvin Morton who had a busy day at the office, awarding five penalties, one red card and numerous yellows.
