Everton Denied Win by Late Dunk Equalizer for 10-player Brighton

Lewis Dunk headed in a 95th-minute equaliser to earn 10-player Brighton a point and maintain their long unbeaten run at home with a 1-1 draw against Everton. 

Jarrad Branthwaite had slammed Everton into a shock 73rd-minute lead before Billy Gilmour was sent off late on as Brighton looked to be heading for their first league defeat at the Amex Stadium since August.

But captain Dunk rose to head in Pascal Gross' cross in injury time to earn a deserved point after the hosts, who recorded 23 shots, had failed to capitalise on dominating possession throughout.

Brighton gained ground on sixth-placed Manchester United, now trailing them by five points, while Everton are one point above the bottom three.
