Lopez nets late Brighton equaliser

Published Add your comment

David Lopez's penalty deep into stoppage time extended Brighton's unbeaten run to five matches and denied Michael Appleton a first win as Blackburn manager as they recorded a 1-1 draw.

Albion had nothing to show for extended periods of possession in the first half and, after their goalkeeper Tomasz Kuszczak denied Jason Lowe and Morten Gamst Pedersen, Jordan Rhodes fired Rovers ahead from the penalty spot on the stroke of half-time.

A magnificent late Kuszczak save prevented the in-form Scotland international striker from adding to his tally and it would prove a vital intervention in the npower Championship tussle.
