  • 94'

    FULL TIME! Brighton and Hove Albion 0 - 0 Burnley! So the game ends in a draw. The way the hosts played, you'd expect them to win this game but they couldn't find the goal and even missed a penalty. Thanks for joining us. Cheers!

  • 93'

    The ball bounces higher than Duffy was expecting and he just palms it away! No surprise, he gets a yellow card for his effort!

  • 92'

    Vokes and Barnes look to combine to create a chance but Barnes can't quite get the shot away. The ball gets down to the other end, where March has a go but it's wide of the target.

  • 90'

    There will be 4 minutes of added time.

  • 89'

    A shot from Propper but it's just wide! Wasn't the greatest effort but teams are normally desperate at this time.

  • 87'

    Some pressure from Brown, sees Mee concede a corner. The corner isn't that great and Pope catches the ball but fumbles. He will be relieved to have caught it at the second attempt!

  • 85'

    Izquierdo goes to ground after passing Mee, who stuck his leg out. He was lucky not to have been booked for diving.

  • 83'

    After that cross, Knockaert comes off and is replaced by Izquierdo.

  • 82'

    Vokes first course of action is to head away a Knockaert corner.

  • 80'

    With just 10 minutes to go, Burnley bring on Vokes in place of Wood. Still time for one team to walk away with three points.

  • 77'

    Stephens gets a yellow for a push on Taylor. Burnley with a free kick but can't really get anything out of it.

  • 76'

    Brighton make another change. Brown is on for Gross.

  • 74'

    Brilliant run by Wood! He makes a great run and is through on goal and looks to lift the ball over the keeper but Ryan stays on his feet and takes one to the face! Brighton think he was offside but replay show he was onside.

  • 72'

    Barnes gets a yellow for a barge on Ryan, who caught the ball.

  • 70'

    Arfield is pulled back by Bruno and now Burnley have a free-kick. Gudmundsson takes it and it's only been half cleared before the hosts eventually clear the danger.

  • 68'

    March is the next man to find his name going into the ref's book for a late challenge on Bardsley. The visitors also decide to make a change with Barnes replacing Defour.

  • 64'

    The hosts decide it's time for a change. They bring on Hemed in place of Murray, who will be mulling over that missed penalty chance.

  • 62'

    Ryan has been really great today and he proves his worth by making two great saves in quick succession as Arfield takes 2 shots from close range! Wood then has a go at the rebound but he's deemed offside!

  • 60'

    As we reach the hour mark, we are still goalless at the Amex Stadium. Burnley will be the happier of the two teams. This situation suits them as they have been known to sneak a goal through on many occasions. Could this be one of them?

  • 54'

    Tarkowski meets a cross with a good touch but Stephens is there to clear it off the line! You can just sense that there's a goal coming!

  • 52'

    Knockaert finds himself in acres of space as he sprints through and then looks to cross the ball across the post. Murray can't quite get there though and it goes safely through to Pope.

  • 49'

    Ryan makes one of the easiest saves he would have made all day. Wood latches onto a ball from Hendrick but his feet get a bit tangled and doesn't get any power on the shot as it heads towards Ryan.

  • 47'

    Taylor fouls Knockaert and he finds his name going into the ref's books as a result.

  • 46'

    We are back and underway with the second half.

  • 451'

    HALF TIME! Brighton and Hove Albion 0 - 0 Burnley! That half certainly belonged to the hosts. We'll be back shortly to bring you all the action from the second half.

  • 45'

    There is a fierce battle going on between Tarkowski and Murray at the moment. Tarkowski falls over as he has to jump over Murray who he thought was attempting a header. A minute of added time will be played.

  • 40'

    Tarkowski is very fortunate here. Murray goes down and the reason isn't clear at first but replays show that he was deliberately elbowed in the ribs by Tarkowski. If the ref saw that, it would've been another penalty and a sending off.

  • 38'

    At the end of the day it was fair that the penalty was missed as that decision was iffy to say the least. So it evens out I guess. Brighton will still keep coming though and Murray will want to make up for that missed opportunity.

  • 36'

    PENALTY MISSED! Murray sends the ball over the bar and you really have to wonder what the hosts have to do to find the back of the net!

  • 35'

    PENALTY! Brighton have a penalty! Tarkowski is deemed to have tripped Murray and the ref points to the spot!

  • 31'

    Free-kick for Brighton and it's taken quickly by Gross. He looks to play it wide to March but the ball takes a deflection and goes straight to Pope.

  • 30'

    We have reached the 30 minute mark and it's the hosts that look the far better team at the moment. They will be wondering how are they not ahead yet!

  • 24'

    Another chance for Brighton! They have a corner and as it comes in, Dunk gets his head to the ball, only to have it cleared by Bardsley...off the line! Brighton want a penalty but they never going to get that.

  • 22'

    The ball quickly makes its way to the other end, where Gross's cross finds Knockaert. Knockaert with a well struck ball that hits the post!

  • 21'

    Arfield with a low cross and finds Gudmundsson, who sees his touch take a deflection and force Ryan to make a save!

  • 19'

    It looks like Murray up front is key to Brighton's tactics for today. Gross is out wide and looks to pick out the forward but Murray is deemed offside.

  • 15'

    Brighton on the attack and this time it's through Bruno. His cross finds Murray, who heads it straight to Pope. A yard or so either side and they would've been ahead!

  • 13'

    Kncokaert takes a free-kick for Brighton and it's a great cross. The falls perfectly for Dunk but his kick, which was heading towards the goal, was blocked by Duffy and rolls out for a goal kick!

  • 11'

    A vital interception by Gross! Wood does well to bring down a long ball and turns to look for Cork. As he was about to make the pass, Gross stops him in his tracks.

  • 9'

    Ryan forced to make a save after a good header from Wood. There was a push on Duffy though and the ref awards a free kick.

  • 4'

    Dunk heads the ball out and Burnley have the first corner of the game. It's taken by Gudmundsson, who looks to find Mee but Murray is aware to what's going on and clears the danger.

  • 3'

    Tempo of the game is a bit on the slow side as both teams look to find their rhythm. The form that Burnley has been in lately, they will be the more confident side.
