Just in

Brighton 1 Wolves 1

A crowd of just over 27000 witnessed a lacklustre match in which the draw was probably the fair result. Chris  Hughton rang the changes after a sterile performance at Reading in midweek with 5 new players.  The Seagulls looked liked they should have a goal when Teixeira’s shot was parried into the path of Craig Mackail Smith who netted but was ruled offside. We did  take the lead through Bruno who drilled home but for the fifteenth time this season the opposition equalised within 10 minutes of our scoring.

Thomas Kuszczak returned better the posts  he once graced for the Seagulls  and to ironic cheers of Super Tom as he might have done better to stop Bruno’s shot. Stockdale too was poorly positoned in anticipating a cross that beat him at the near post but he did acquit himself with at least two essential shot stopping saves.

As ever after the game I poured myself a  malt  and called Alan Tanner. He was not at Hilllsborough for the Fulham draw but he said by all accounts it was a drab affaire. The biggest positive was Matt Smith scoring making it two in two games which is two more than Craig  Mackail Smith has managed since August.
