Super substitute Danny Welbeck rescued a point for Brighton & Hove Albion and denied 10-man Sheffield United a first win of the season.

Sheff Utd were close to a shock victory after Jayden Bogle had come off the bench to mark his Premier League debut with a goal that deflected in off Adam Webster on 63 minutes.

That goal came against the run of play after John Lundstram’s first-half red card, shown by Peter Bankes who used the Referee Review Area following the midfielder’s challenge on Joel Veltman.

The Blades had a late chance to seal victory but Oliver Burke blazed a great chance over the bar.

The 2,000 fans in attendance at Amex Stadium roared Brighton on and Welbeck made Burke pay when he showed superb control and volleyed in with three minutes remaining.

Brighton could have snatched a win but Welbeck’s stoppage-time header was cleared off the line before Alireza Jahanbakhsh headed against a post.

It means Brighton stay 16th and miss the opportunity to go above Arsenal. Bottom-of-the-table Sheff Utd are on two points, eight adrift of safety.
