Derby County 2 Brighton & Hove Albion 2

Albion drew at the Ipro stadium after twice going ahead through goals from loan players James Wilson and Rajiv Van La Parra

Wilson put Albion ahead on 22 minutes, only for ex-Seagull Bradley Johnson to equalise five minutes before half time.

Van la Parra put Albion back in front with 15 minutes remaining only to see the Rams awarded a hotly contested late penalty which perennial Albion tormentor Chris Martin duly dispatched.

However, the Seagulls did beat QPR’s 19-match Championship unbeaten record and if the Albion remain unbeaten for a further nine matches they will beat the 123-year-old second-tier unbeaten record set by Liverpool.
