Struggling Stoke misses likelihood to beat Brighton in EPL

Struggling Stoke misses likelihood to beat Brighton in EPL

The Seagulls had taken a first-half lead through a clinical finish from Colombia winger Jose Izquierdo before the 18th-placed Potters, who remain in the bottom three on goal difference, levelled through a curling effort from Switzerland global Xherdan Shaqiri 22 minutes from time.

"When you get a penalty in last minute it's a big opportunity to win the game".

Jose Izquierdo picked up the ball from deep and after exchanging passes in a slick rhythm with two team mates, put it past Jack Butland.

The Seagulls switched off and nearly conceded an equaliser from the restart, as Badou Ndiaye fired a volley just wide of Maty Ryan's right hand post.

It was the visitors who had the first chance of the half on 56 minutes.

With a record-breaking vocal home crowd behind them, the Potters continued to pen Albion into their final third of the pitch and made their pressure pay on 68 minutes for the equaliser.

Adam also missed what appeared a simple chance to tap in the rebound, with the sense of farce increasing after the Stoke midfielder clashed with substitute Jese over who was taking the penalty.

The Potters faithful were up, but Brighton stayed defiant, with another shot coming in from Stoke which Anthony Knockaert cleared off the line with his head.

CHARLIE ADAM'S missed penalty in stoppage time means Stoke remain in the bottom three with hopes of Premier League survival looking bleak.

Next up for Albion, Coventry City in the FA Cup 5th round at the Amex next Saturday (17 February).
