In a disjointed first half, neither side could produce a clear opening as Jose Fonte and Rickie Lambert went closest for Saints.

The game finally came alive on the stroke of half-time when Adam Lallana was denied a penalty after being hauled down as he stormed in Brighton's box, while Gary Dicker saw a deflected shot go close at the other end.

The second half was similarly hard fought but Brighton spurned a golden chance to snatch all three points on 66 minutes.

Ryan Dickson was adjudged to have fouled Glenn Murray in the Saints area, but West Brom loanee Wood - who scored from the spot last week against Bristol Rovers - saw his well-struck penalty saved by Davis.

Despite a flurry of late end-to-end action, chances remained scarce as the match ended all-square, keeping the Seagulls on top of League One and Saints lurking in the play-off picture.

Mail Box

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...

Erm... Balotelli To QPR..?

It's an afternoon Mailbox that offers the reaction to the reaction, with a defence for Diego Costa offered, and Balotelli mooted to move to QPR. Plus a silly idea about the Mails...
