Brighton drew two-two with QPR in the Championship on Tuesday, but having been two-nil up this is dropped points with the 10-men, following a Lewis Dunk red card, unable to hold on.

After the goalless first half Brighton went ahead when Dale Stephens volleyed an unusual goal past England ‘keeper Rob Green early in the second period, which QPR weren’t happy with as he could have fouled Sandro in the process.

Two-minutes later, and from 30-yards, Wolves loanee Rajiv van La Parra smashed in Albion’s second (via a deflection) to leave a win very much on but QPR replied fairly quickly with Charlie Austin pulling one back, at the second attempt, from close range.

Brighton lost Dunk to a second yellow card, which will also mean him missing the top of the table showdown this weekend, after a foul on Alejandro Faurlin in the final minutes with Austin capitalising on this advantage to head home an equaliser two-minutes from time.
