Towell found the net just 77 seconds into the encounter at Oriel Park and his 10th goal of the season was something special.

With a strike reminiscent of Dutch striker Marco van Basten's stunning volley in the Euro 88 Final, Towell hit the long ball first time, with his thundering effort flying past the keeper for the perfect start.

It has been a difficult day for the visitors, who trailed 4-1 at the break, with further strikes from Daryl Horgan (2) Ronan Finn and Dane Massey adding to their misery as the Seagulls suffered a record defeat.
