That's it. An important win for Burnley who move into 15th, just one place behind Brighton who are on 27 points as well. Both should be safe. Should.
Tarkowski heads the ball out, it hits Mee in the face, and Heaton launches himself left to stop.
Two minutes left.
There will be four minutes of added time - just enough for a comeback.
Mee is alright to stay on, it seems.
Ben Mee goes down with an injury after a heavy landing on his right leg. It won't hurt to run down the clock, but he does really seem hurt.
Three minutes left of this. Burnley should hold on if they can keep a clean sheet for the next couple of minutes.
Brighton have a free kick, so send their centre backs forward. Propper can't get a shot away on the edge of the box but Brighton keep hold of the ball.
Knockaert wins a corner on the right wing, but Duffy wins and concedes a goal kick.
A little over 10 minutes for the game to finally play out. Both sides could still get something from this.
- GoalShane DuffyBrighton & Hove Albion
GOAL! Brighton 1-3 Burnley. Duffy scores - Duffy races towards an inswinging free kick from Knockaert, into the six-yard box, and stoops to diving head the ball past Heaton to pull one back.
- Yellow cardAshley WestwoodBurnley
Westwood in the book.
GOAL! Brighton 0-3 Burnley. Barnes scores - He takes a gentle run up before drilling it to his left, under the diving 'keeper.
PENALTY! And there's a lot of controversy here as Brighton want one at their end. Barnes has the penalty after attempting to round Ryan, who pulled him down. But at the other end Hendrick handballed after Murray flicked the ball towards him in the penalty spot. The ref ignored it, and here we are.

Two subs for Brighton, with Jahanbakhsh and Bissouma on.
- GoalChris WoodBurnley
GOAL! Brighton 0-2 Burnley. Wood scores - That could be the three points for Burnley as Wood gets his second. McNeil advances down the middle, lays it off to Wood, and he calmly slots a low shot past Ryan who can't keep it out despite getting a hand to it.
Gross curls in a corner, Heaton punches it clear to Montoya. It's crossed back in again, eventually comes to Gross who is now on the edge of the box, and he curls an effort over the far top corner.
Heaton sends a free kick long, and it's back with Brighton again. Bong crosses high up the pitch, it hits Bardsley and goes behind for a corner.
Brighton start to build from the back.
Brighton have spent much of the half so far in Burnley's half, but without creating a great deal. They need to keep the pressure on.
Barrnes flies in on Knockaert, who wants a penalty, but it ended up as a relatively clean tackle.
Bong floats in a cross to teh back post, and Heaton flaps away. Bardsley clears the next cross, but Brighton still have it.

On comes Knockaert. March goes off.

We go again. It is absolutely rodding it down.
- End of 1st Half
That's half time. I'll see you in 15 minutes. Figuratively.
Another two minutes to go.
Brighton go close again, with Hendrick managing to clear off the line as the ball is headed to the bottom corner with venom from Duffy.
Another save from Heaton. Gross reaches a cross, and lifts a volley over Tarkowski, but Heaton manages to slap it away with the goal behind him.
Brighton need a spark. Looking at the bench, there is no striking player of real quality who leaps out.
The ref has changed his mind after a chat with assistant, and the decision is reversed. The correct decision is currently being booed, which nicely sums up football.
March gets to the byline, looking for a way past Taylor, and eventually wins a corner. It came off March last - that's a mistake
Locadia collects a ball high up on the left and releases a pass behind him that goes to a Burnley shirt. Oh no.
Barnes receives a pass across the box, and he takes a touch instead of shooting first time, and his eventual effort is wan. It also lacks elan.
Westwood's corner is glanced wide by Westwood, but the ref has already awarded a foul to Brighton, not clear what for.
Stephens cuts out McNeil's cross at the other end to give Burnley a corner on the left wing.
Duffy's overhead kick did not hit McNeil's head, but the arm of the Burnley man. It coud well have been a penalty, but perhaps the ref gave a foul for dangerous play.
Tarkowski fouls Locadia on the left wing, conceding a free kick. Whipped in, headed up by Mee, and a scrap in the box sees Burnley awarded a free kick after McNeil is apparently boshed on the head.
- GoalChris WoodBurnley
GOAL! Brighton 0-1 Burnley. Wood scores - Barnes has the ball on the left, and he quickly spins and sends a ball over the top. Dunk slips, Wood collects and has space to attack the 'keeper, and the striker firmly sends the ball over his head and into the back of the net.
March has the ball in the box from Locadia's pass. He steps inside onto his left, and rifles a rising shot that Heaton smartly sticks out a plam to and pushes away.
Ryan sends it long. Burnley collect and send it long. Spot the theme today.
Murray does well to collect the ball in the corner, but despite keeping it in, it's little help - Mee is on hand to take the ball right off him.
Barnes comes close to the opener for Brighton. McNeil's cross comes off Duffy and the ball flies against the crossbar. It comes to Barnes, who then heads his own effort onto the bar.
After 15 minutes, here are the highlights so far:
Ryan sends it long for Murray, who concedes a foul for not much, really.
Crouch looks on, meaningfully and deeply, from the bench.
Bardsley and Bong shake hands and get back into the game together.
Bong is fine to continue.
In perhaps useless news, Lee Dixon is the co-commentator for my feed, and he is very not annyoing, which is a boon. Bardsley and Bong fly into one another, and Bong was smashed by Bardsley's hip. He's getting treatment now.
A long ball hoofed into midfield by Heaton, who seems like a nice enough chap.
The Burnley fans are booing Gaetan Bong, which is depressingly predictable.
- 1st Half
The match gets underway.
There's five minutes until kickoff.
An exciting time for all of us with a possible sighting of Peter Crouch, who has turned being basically alright into a perceived remarkable quality.
You can send me your considered and brilliant thoughts to @lxndrnthrtn on Twitter.
A win for Burnley would lift them from 18th into - if they beat Brighton 6-0 - into 14th. Brighton would just be able to leapfrog Crystal Palace with a draw or win, into 13th.
