Late own goal helps Brighton draw with Palace

A late own goal from Joachim Andersen salvaged a point for Brighton in an eventful encounter with Crystal Palace at the Amex Stadium.

Brighton had a goal disallowed and a penalty saved in the first half before Conor Gallaghers 69th-minute strike.

The Palace midfielder, who coolly slotted in Jeffrey Schlupps cut-back, looked to have snatched all three points for the visitors.

With three minutes left, Neal Maupays low cross was deflected in by Anderson.

It was a deserved equaliser for Brighton after they created numerous chances but were denied by goalkeeper Jack Butland, who was in fine form.

Butland denied Pascal Gross from the spot in the first half, kept out Leandro Trossard following a huge error from defender Joel Ward and later tipped Jakub Moders effort over the bar.

Brightons Moder also hit the crossbar within minutes of the restart after Maupay had earlier bundled it over the line, only for the goal to be ruled out for a foul on Butland.

Both Maupays disallowed effort and the awarded penalty decision came after referee Robert Jones consulted the pitchside VAR monitor effectively.

In a frenetic few minutes before half time, Jones awarded the spot-kick when Will Hughes had his arms around Joel Veltman but Gross poor effort was saved. From the resulting corner, Maupay had a high boot when he challenged Butlands grip on the ball on the goalline.

Palace were holding on in the final minutes as Brighton pushed for a winner but the hosts had to settle for a point.
