Commentary

That concludes our live coverage of a nail-biting encounter at the Amex Stadium. Thanks for joining us. Goodbye for now.
For all their possession and territory, Wolves lacked cutting edge and have been left with a second straight loss. It's a heavy dose of reality ahead of next Saturday's home meeting with Tottenham. Brighton, having now recorded three clean sheets in as many outings, will have a spring in their step for the upcoming trip to Everton.
Murray is the match-winner and Brighton have nine points from their last three Premier League games! Under an injury cloud in the lead-up, the striker overcame last week's concussion to score the 48th-minute winner, his 100th goal for the club. It was far from pretty with Wolves on top for large patches, not that Hughton will care one bit.
90' + 4' FULL-TIME: BRIGHTON AND HOVE ALBION 1-0 WOLVES
90' + 3' SAVE!! Crucial from Ryan! He instinctively sticks out a hand out to deny Bennett at close range. It wasn't the cleanest of connections from the defender.
A. Knockaert
Yellow Card
Brighton & Hove Albion
90' Substitute Knockaert becomes the third player to receive a yellow card.
90' Jota weaves away from several markers to make just enough space for a shot. It's straight at Ryan, however, and Brighton whittle a few more seconds off the clock.
90' Brighton are almost there. They've battled hard and continue to lead 1-0 with a third consecutive win within sight.
88' Costa fails to beat the first man with his cross after being isolated in a one-on-one with Bruno. Cavaleiro's resultant corner lands safely in Ryan's arms.
Léo Bonatini
Jonny Castro
Wolverhampton Wanderers
85' Time is running out for Wolves to manufacture an equaliser. Nuno throws on Bonatini in place of Jonny.
84' Moutinho delivers another Wolves corner that brings about some unconvincing defending. Ryan eventually grabs the ball on the bounce after his path was initially blocked by team-mate Dunk.
A. Knockaert
J. Izquierdo
Brighton & Hove Albion
81' It's like-for-like as Knockaert relieves Izquierdo on the wing.
81' You can sense there's still a goal in this. Wolves are the more likely, but Brighton's back four is holding up well and a chance to stretch their advantage could yet come on the break.
78' Risky from Dunk! Neves guides a free-kick that looks set to have Ryan scrambling. Instead, centre-back Dunk backpedals and nods the ball just past his own goal.
L. Dunk
Yellow Card
Brighton & Hove Albion
77' Dunk will have to be careful in the closing stages after joining Kayal on a caution.
76' WOLVES DENIED AGAIN! Top goalkeeping from Ryan to hold Neves' shot despite it travelling through a sea of bodies in the penalty area.
75' SAVE! Ryan leaps to his left to push away Doherty's drive just moments after a promising Brighton counter fizzled out at the other end.
74' If they hold on here, Brighton will have extended their perfect top-flight record against Wolves to seven wins from seven.
Y. Bissouma
S. March
Brighton & Hove Albion
71' Some extra insurance in midfield for Brighton with Bissouma replacing March, one of the side's better performers today.
70' Good chance for Doherty comes to nothing. The defender makes a poor connection with a cross that fell invitingly at the far post.
69' The match is beginning to open up a bit with just over 20 minutes remaining. Brighton's 1-0 lead still looks in jeopardy.
67' A warm round of applause at Amex Stadium in memory of broadcaster and Brighton fan Peter Brackley, who passed away recently.
64' Costa threatens with another delivery behind the defence. It's just beyond Cavaleiro's reach, though, and Ryan collects.
62' Not the finest start for Jota, who slices an attempted cross well wide of its intended target.
Ivan Cavaleiro
Adama Traoré
Wolverhampton Wanderers
61' Traore's first start of the Premier League seasons lasts an hour as Cavaleiro comes on.
Diogo Jota
R. Jiménez
Wolverhampton Wanderers
61' Jimenez has had some nice touches but Nuno has seen enough. He's off with Jota his replacement.
60' Costa's cross in from the left almost comes through to Jonny, but the hosts survive the nervy moment.
58' Brighton looking far more assured after the interval. Can they make the better spell count and add a second?
55' Brighton boss Hughton has lost only one of his eight previous meetings against Wolves as a manager, winning three and drawing four.
B. Kayal
Yellow Card
Brighton & Hove Albion
52' A late, sloppy tackle from Kayal sees him become the first player into the book.
51' Good test now for Wolves. On top for almost the entire first half, they are now on course for a second straight loss. Jimenez almost conjures something out of nothing with an inventive over-the-shoulder effort that drops wide of the far post.
G. Murray
Goal
Brighton & Hove Albion
48' GOAL! 1-0 TO BRIGHTON! He's barely had a sniff all day and yet that man Murray breaks the deadlock, tapping home after Bruno bravely stormed onto a loose ball in the box. It's the centre-forward's 100th goal for the club!
Bruno Saltor
Assist
Brighton & Hove Albion
48' The ball initially came in from the left and was met by the fast-arriving Bruno, whose wayward strike fell perfectly for Murray.
46' Wolves get the second half underway with both teams seeking the breakthrough. No changes at the interval.
Duffy should have also done better with an inviting header that shaved the upright, but Hughton will know Brighton need to improve if they're to go unbeaten in three.
Wolves will be disappointed to enter the break without a goal to their credit after outplaying Brighton for much of the first 45 minutes. Doherty should have delivered on the dominance when he broke into the box and curled narrowly past the post on 33 minutes.
45' + 1' HALF-TIME: BRIGHTON AND HOVE ALBION 0-0 WOLVES
45' One minute of added time to close out this scoreless first half.
44' It appears Duffy is still thinking about that lost opportunity as, under no pressure, he just hoists the ball out of play. Odd.
41' That would have lifted Hughton's mood! March lofts a corner to the back post, Duffy hangs in the air and seems certain to score, but his header only grazes the outside of the upright.
40' Applause and roars now from Brighton's fans as they win possession on a couple of occasions, which has been a rarity.
38' Murray, who was a serious doubt to feature at all today, has barely had a kick so far. Can Brighton find a way to get him into the game before the interval?
35' That chance came as a result of Bong again being overloaded out on Brighton's left. He could do with some cover from Izquierdo.
33' WIDE! That should have been the opener. Doherty, who has surged forward with regularity, collects Jimenez's classy touch and cuts onto his left, only to steer his finish around the far post.
32' Excellent defending from Boly to stand up and block an attempt from March, who drags a second effort well wide of the target. Still, that was a positive passing move.
29' Few murmurs of frustration starting to emerge among the home fans at Amex Stadium with their team struggling to create anything in attack.
27' Being on the road hasn't stopped Wolves from bossing possession during this first half. Brighton must find a foothold if they're to avoid falling behind before the break.
24' Traore weaves inside from the left and unleashes the game's first shot on target, but it's comfortable for Ryan to hold low down.
23' Despite their defeat against Watford last time out, Wolves' haul of 15 points from nine games is the best total by a promoted team at this stage of a Premier League season since West Brom in 2010-11 (15 points).
21' Some excitement now for the home supporters. Jahanbakhsh throws himself unsuccessfully at a fine first-time March cross, the attacker having been slipped into space by Izquierdo.
19' It's a matter of survival for the Seagulls approaching the 20-minute mark of a one-sided contest. Hughton will be relieved his team remain level.
17' So nearly a clear chance for Wolves with Neves looking to thread Doherty in behind the defence, but it's just out of reach.
16' More encouragement for the visitors as the heavily involved Doherty gets to the byline and whips a fizzing delivery across that's crucially cut out by Bruno.
14' Doherty appeals for a penalty and he perhaps should have had one! The right-back lashes a shot into Izquierdo's raised arm but the referee waves away the protests. Brighton are having to put their bodies on the line at the moment.
11' Better from Brighton. March wins a free-kick on the left and swings it into the direction of Duffy, who can't control a tough header.
9' Wolves have certainly settled the quicker of the two sides, enjoying a strong share of possession and regularly looking to exploit Brighton left-back Bong.
7' A miscommunication on the edge of the area scuppers a sweeping Wolves move following Coady's exquisite release of Doherty along the right flank.
5' Enterprising play from Kayal to breeze through the middle of the pitch, before Wolves get men back and snuff out the threat.
4' Wolves win an early corner but it comes to nothing as Traore is penalised for a handball.
3' These teams last met during the 2016-17 season in the Championship, with the Seagulls winning both matches without conceding a goal.
1' We're underway as hosts Brighton get the ball rolling against Wolves!
The players are headed out onto the pitch at Amex Stadium. Not long now until kick-off!
Chris Hughton understandably sticks with the team that edged Newcastle United 1-0 with key striker Murray passed fit after sustaining a concussion at St James' Park.
Nuno Espirito Santo responds to last weekend's defeat against Watford by altering his starting XI for the first time this season as speedster Traore replaces Jota in attack.
Wolves subs: John Ruddy, Morgan Gibbs-White, Leo Bonatini, Leander Dendoncker, Diogo Jota, Ivan Cavaleiro, Ruben Vinagre.
Wolves XI (3-4-2-1): Rui Patricio; Willy Boly, Conor Coady, Ryan Bennett; Matt Doherty, Ruben Neves, Joao Moutinho, Jonny Castro Otto; Helder Costa, Adama Traore; Raul Jimenez.
Brighton subs: Jason Steele, Yves Bissouma, Bernardo, Anthony Knockaert, Jurgen Locadia, Florin Andone, Leon Balogun.
Brighton and Hove Albion XI (4-4-1-1): Mat Ryan; Bruno, Shane Duffy, Lewis Dunk, Gaetan Bong; Alireza Jahanbakhsh, Beram Kayal, Dale Stephens, Jose Izquierdo; Solly March; Glenn Murray.
The team news is out...so let's take a look...
Both teams enter this match with top-half ambitions fuelled by encouraging starts to the season, promoted Wolves impressively securing four victories from the opening nine fixtures and Brighton winners in each of their last two.
Good afternoon and welcome to coverage of today's Premier League clash between Brighton & Hove Albion and Wolves.
