Last-minute winner takes Cardiff out of bottom three

Dale Stephens (in green) saw red for a challenge on Greg Cunningham

Cardiff City earned a second Premier League win of the season in dramatic fashion after coming from behind to beat 10-man Brighton following Dale Stephens' first-half red card.

Sol Bamba's winner in the final minute of normal time after Cardiff had twice hit the woodwork proved the difference for Neil Warnock's men.

Callum Paterson had headed the Bluebirds level after Lewis Dunk's early opener, before Stephens' straight red card for a lunge at Greg Cunningham altered the contest.

The Bluebirds move out of the bottom three as Brighton surrendered a winning position for the first time this season.
