Brighton   3 - 3   Hartlepool

Brighton 3-3 Hartlepool

Brighton 3-3 Hartlepool

Two goals in the space of eight minutes either side of the interval from veteran striker Nicky Forster rescued a point for Brighton against Hartlepool.

Adam Boyd gave Pools an early lead with a shot on the turn but Liam Dickinson levelled from the edge of the box.

Forster put Brighton ahead from six yards but poor defending allowed Andy Monkhouse to make it 2-2.

Ritchie Jones struck for Pools in first-half stoppage-time but Forster won a point with a close-range finish.


Brighton boss Russell Slade told BBC Sussex:

"I thought we created an abundance of chances all afternoon.

"In fact I've just looked at the stats and there's 25 opportunities all in all of which eight of those were clear cut chances so we've done a lot of good work.

"I think going forward, if we score three at home, we should be winning football matches."
