The Robins snatched a battling point right at the death through a goal by substitute Andy Gallinagh.

Gallinagh struck in the fourth minute of stoppage time after his side had been reduced to 10 men following the dismissal of Josh Payne for a straight red card, the on-loan West Ham man sent off for protesting over the rejection of a penalty appeal.

Glenn Murray headed the Seagulls into the lead in the opening minute and, after Scott Murray levelled a minute later for Cheltenham, the Brighton frontman netted his second when he tapped in an Adam Virgo pass five minutes later.

Scott Murray pulled Cheltenham level with a tremendous volley after Brighton had failed to clear a corner, but Glenn Murray made it 3-2 shortly after the restart by heading in a cross from the impressive Kevin Thornton at the far post.

But Biting Doesn't Hurt Like Stamping...

There are Liverpool fans arguing that Luis Suarez is nowhere near Diego Costa's sh*t-house league but we have plenty of love for the agitator too. Oh and Spurs...
