Football: Honours even between Brighton and Southampton

(REUTERS) - Brighton and Hove Albion recovered from an early blow to draw 1-1 at home to Southampton in the Premier League on Sunday (Oct 29).

Steven Davis gave the visitors a seventh-minute lead when he headed in a rebound after James Ward-Prowse's curling free kick bounced back off the crossbar.

Brighton took a long time to get up to speed in the first top-flight clash between the two south-coast sides since 1983, but they improved markedly after the break.

Glenn Murray's header in the 52nd minute made sure honours were even to leave Southampton in ninth spot and newly-promoted Brighton in 11th.
