Blackburn manager Michael Appleton was aggrieved to watch Brighton leave Ewood Park with a 1-1 draw due to an equaliser scored outside the allocated period of stoppage time.

David Lopez was clumsily bundled over by Rovers substitute David Goodwillie in the box when five additional minutes had elapsed and the Spaniard picked himself up to convert the resulting penalty.

"The most disappointing thing - I've got to be careful what I say a little bit - is for 45 seconds the fourth official is screaming down his mic to the referee 'that's it, it's done, it's finished'," Appleton explained.
