The Albion drew with play-off rivals Leicester, coming back from a goal behind with just two minutes left to play.

Matty James put the Foxes ahead with 20 minutes remaining after the East Midlanders had had several chances to go in front.

In the very first minute former England international David Nugent had a good shout for a penalty for the visitors. And Tomasz Kuszczak pushed a shot from the same player on to the crossbar.

Inigo Calderon saw an effort cleared off the goal-line by the Foxes defence.

In the second half Albion introduced Vicente Rodriguez and he created a host of chances but Albion could not make the most of these.

In the end it was Kazenga LuaLua who deflected a shot from the edge of the area to pull the Seagulls level with two minutes to play. His goal keeps Albion in sixth place, two points clear of their visitors and Bolton.
