Brighton 1-1 Cardiff
Lee Bullock headed home Gary O'Neil's cross to earn Cardiff a point.

Brighton took the lead when Leon Knight latched on to Dean Hammond's pass and beat Tony Harper from short range.

Hammond missed a chance to extend the lead, mis-hitting Darren Currie's corner, while Cardiff's Alan Lee had a header blocked by Guy Butters.

Brighton keeper Michel Kuipers saved from Joe Ledley, who then saw a header hit the woodwork, while Lee missed a good chance before Bullock's equaliser.

  • Brighton boss Mark McGhee:

    The goal we conceded was very basic.

    "The goalkeeper and the keeper didn't pick up the lad and it was disappointing, but 1-1 was a fair result.

    "It was a good team performance to get us a point. It keeps Cardiff behind us, but to be honest we are punching above our weight.

    "We are under no illusions. Our young players are doing their best and this is a great achievement by them."

  • Cardiff boss Lennie Lawrence:

    "We gave Brighton an early lead but in the first half alone we had enough chances to win three games.

    "It was a case of two points being lost.

    "In fairness our players kept going and it would have been a real choker had we come away with nothing."
