Lewis Dunk’s header salvage a point for struggling Brighton


Brighton Hove & Albion came back from 3-1 down to rescue a point against Wolverhampton Wonderers.

After getting an early lead through Aaron Connolly, the Seagulls found themselves trailing by 3-1 at the half time as Romain Saiss’ header, Dan Burns’ own goal and Ruben Neves’ penalty put Nuno Espírito Santo’s men in the driving seat at the break.

However, Graham Potters’ half-time team talk totally changed dynamics of the game as the home side reduced deficit inside 50 seconds after the restart following Neal Maupay’s penalty.

Brighton didn’t sit back after that and pushed for the equalizer with a continuous attack at Rui Patricio’s goal. Finally, in the 70th-minute, Lewis Dunk nodded home from Leandro Trossard’s inch-perfect corner to salvage a point for out-of-form BHAFC.

The draw has kept Brighton three points off the relegation zone, while Wolves dropped down to 13th in the Premier League table.

What’s next for both clubs?

The Seagulls has a trip to Newport County in FA Cup third round, whereas Wolves will welcome Crystal Palace on Friday night.
