Albion moved six points clear of the relegation zone after a hard-fought draw at Leicester.

It was a good early evening for Albion despite Neal Maupay’s 14th minute penalty miss.

Albion had few other chances in the first half in which both Alexis Mac Allister and Tariq Lamptey looked mightily impressive.

The Spearhead

The Seagulls were unable to keep up the tempo in a second half of few chances. But Lamptey didn’t give Jamie Vardy a kick.

Glenn Murray eventually replaced a tiring Aaron Connolly for his first appearance since the season restarted.

Leandro Trossard, also on a substitute, also got in some dangerous positions late in the game but Albion didn’t really trouble the Foxes.

At the other there was one awkward moment when Lewis Dunk and Maty Ryan suffered a lack of communication that cost Albion a corner.

The Seagulls will take on Manchester United at the Amex next Tuesday evening (30 June) with the kick-off at 8.15pm.
