Argentinian’s first Premier League goal earns point after Wilfried Zaha continues scoring streak against the Seagulls


(African Stand) — Substitute Alexis Mac Allister netted a 90th-minute equaliser to earn Brighton a thoroughly deserved draw against rivals Crystal Palace.

Argentine Mac Allister latched on fellow substitute Aaron Connolly‘s lay-off to drill home a rasping first-time finish from the edge of the area.

Palace were on the back foot for long periods but looked like holding on for victory – having taken a 10th-minute lead courtesy of Wilfried Zaha‘s penalty, which turned out to be the home side’s only shot on target.

The spot-kick was rather harshly awarded as Tariq Lamptey was judged to have dragged down Michy Batshuayi in the box, but replays showed there was little contact on the Palace striker.

Brighton pushed for a winner in seven scheduled minutes of added time but in captain Lewis Dunk’s desperation to pounce on a loose ball, he caught Gary Cahill with a stud-high challenge and was sent off.

The draw moves Palace up a place to 12th, while Brighton stay 16th in the table.
