Brighton draw at Crystal Palace


Brighton missed an opportunity in their push for European football as they were held to a Premier League draw by rivals Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

The influential Solly March opened the scoring for the visitors, directing Pervis Estupinan's searching delivery into the top corner after getting in front of Tyrick Mitchell at the back post.

The hosts levelled six minutes later thanks to a glaring mistake by Seagulls goalkeeper Robert Sanchez, who dropped a routine catch from Michael Olise's delivery, allowing James Tomkins to head home from close range.

The result leaves Roberto de Zerbi's Brighton four points behind fifth-placed Tottenham with two games in hand, with Palace sitting 12th in the table.
