Brighton 3-3 Wolves: Seagulls come from two goals down to salvage point in six-goal thriller

Brighton battled from two goals down to earn a point Wolves in an entertaining 3-3 draw at the American Express Community Stadium on Saturday evening. 

The hosts got off the blocks first and grabbed the opener after just nine minutes through Aaron Connolly, who got to the end of a Leandro Trossard ball. 

The visitors however pulled level 10 minutes later through Romain Saiss, before taking the lead through a Dan Burn own goal in the 34th minute. 

Burn's night then got from bad to worse as he conceded a penalty on the stroke of half-time, with Ruben Neves successfully converting. 

Brighton though clawed their way back in the second half, with Neal Maupay converting from the spot a minute into the half after Joao Moutinho committed a foul inside the box. 

The hosts then went all out in search of the equalising goal and came close on a number of occasions. 

It finally arrived though in the 70th minute as Lewis Dunk planted a long-range header down inside the left post from a Leandro Trossard corner ball. 

There were few clear-cut chances between the two sides in the last 20 minutes, even though Wolves came closest to clinching it only for Owen Otasowie's header to fly inches over the bar.

This was the fourth occasion that Brighton have managed to rescue a point in a Premier League game in which they've been 2+ goals behind, with this their 45th such match in the competition (W0 D4 L41). 

The draw saw Brighton move to 14 points, even though they remained 17th in the standings.
