Jack Hinshelwood, a young player from Brighton, clinches an impressive comeback win against Brentford.

Young England Under-19 international Jack Hinshelwood scored his first Premier League goal to lead Brighton to a 2-1 comeback victory over Brentford at the Amex Stadium. Hinshelwood, an 18-year-old full-back, headed in Pascal Gross’ cross early in the second half, after clearing a shot off the goal line just a minute earlier. His performance helped Brighton secure their first home win in over a month and maintained their record of scoring and conceding in each of their last 18 Premier League fixtures.

Despite injuries and suspensions leaving Brighton depleted, the team fought hard to earn the win. Stand-in captain Pascal Gross equalized for Brighton after they fell behind to a penalty from Brentford’s Bryan Mbeumo. The match-winning contribution from Hinshelwood, whose father Adam also played for Brighton, was a standout moment in the game.

Brentford suffered a setback when Mbeumo was forced off with an ankle injury, and they struggled to mount a comeback. Brighton had chances to increase their lead, but ultimately it was Hinshelwood’s goal that secured the win and delighted the home fans.
