Dissapointment as Wolves get their last gasp goal

Fans arrive for the match

The players join in the minutes silence for Remembrance

Macca has just scored Albion's first

First published in Albion by

Albion suffered bitter disappointment as they were held to a 3-3 draw by ten-man Wolves at Molineux.

Stephen Dobbie probably thought he had won the game when he fired home an 89th minute penalty.

But big defender Roger Johnson rumbled forward in added time to head home Bakary Sako’s free-kick.

Albion twice came from behind against a Wolves side reduced to ten men for Karl Henry’s dangerous challenge on Liam Bridcutt right on half-time.

That straight red card came moments after Craig Mackail-Smith had expertly swept home a low cross from Bruno to wipe out Sako’s slickly worked opener.

Albion squandered great chances after the break and were punished as substitute Tongo Doumbia, sent on to provide midfield steel in the absence of Henry, was sent through to score.

Will Buckley came off the bench to fire Albion level again after Liam Bridcutt launched a counter raid.

All in all a point is fine, missed chances to put game out of a ten man side were squandered.
If bridge is out for a week or two, does painter come in? Or Calderon keep his place ? El ABd still injured? Means we have little cover at the back.
So many times we struggle to put games to bed.

Lets not be typical Brighton fans at the moment, because all in all it was a fantastic point. Yes you can start complaining about heinsite, but I would have bit your hand of for a point at the start of the day.

- We scored 3 goals, so hopefully our goal drought has ended.
- CMS & Dobbie scored, which particularly for CMS is extremely important.
- WE ARE ONLY 3 POINTS OF THE PLAYOFFS AND HAVE GOT ONE OF OUT HARDEST GAMES OUT THE WAY.

Roll on Huddersfield next weekend!

On the way home. A very good match, with both teams contributing. Calderon played well and maintained the balance in the team. CMS should be on 20 goals by now with all his attempts and play. Dobbie played well, but we switched off completely after the penalty, and paid for it. Looked to me like a break down in communications with the bench at the time.

I wouldn't get too despondent, we needed to get back on a 2points per game track more than anything else.

We got three points at home in the week with a dominant performance, and an away point today against a team fielding 6 players that were in the Premier Lge last season.
So,2 points per game it is, after what has been a bad run of late. I'll take that for sure.

If we keep that up we'll be looking at 18 more points by Dec 31st, and in good shape for the new year with approx 42 points on the board, which incidentaly would be a great improvement on last years 32 points by Dec 31st.

PS - Reading only had 39 points in the bag by Dec 31st last season, and we know what happened after that.

If Gus could make his mind up about who starts games and who doesn't we'll just keep getting more consistent.

Tough one now away at Huddersfield, a point will be good there, and a nice home win against Bolton. We're well placed, don't panic, 2 points per game and stable blood pressure.

We have been unlucky, the almost there for maybe 7 games where we have lost silly goals or not converted.
Lets get behind them. Palace were bottom, few lucky results and it changes things.

I'd hardly call it a fantastic point. It's a shambles. Even Gus said we will not get easier games. We played for 45 mins against 10 men yet still conceded 2 goals. We scored 3 when it could have been 8 or 9. Look at Watford's result, they demonstrated how to play against 10 men !!. Why is Barnes preferred to Hoskins ? We are not unlucky, we are not winning because we are not good enough. A poor result !!

To be honest at the end of the day, a point at molineux is a good one. We have the 3rd best away record in the league. CMS is still on course for 30 goals this season, scoring at the same rate. Just want the rest of the team start converting a greater percentage of their chances and this season will be even more of cracker.

Yes we our now short at the back thats something that needs looking at and still need another stilker, but lets remember the signings we have got we all said that we needed a left and right back we got them we said we needed miidfielders we got them we said we needed a goalkeeper we got him. If we our in the playoff places come the new year we our in a great postion to fight to go up! & im sure Gus will get those signings to strenghen us up for the final push.

It's games like these that build teams and it would be fascinating to hear what went on in the dressing room afterwards. The last half hour on the radio was captivating with all the drama of the highs and the lows.

Great game for the neutral or in Freeloaders case, the Neutered.

Good will come from it I am sure, and it is good to hear of Gus's frustration. I would be more worried if he wasn't.

Great goal from CMS, Dobbie great penalty and Buckley his usual self.

That’s football for you and this is what we signed up for.

Don't get all upset guys - relax because once the manager has said that we are not ready to get promoted - then the players will oblige accordingly.

Remember the team selection at WHU last season - and the performance - we still had a chance of the play offs then!

Just listen to the interview Gus gave to Radio Sussex after the game. I'm not sure that he can take the heat if things started to go a bit pear shaped and remember we have about 16,000 home supporters who have not been thru the Withdean and Priestfield mill!

That lot might be much quicker to turn than the die hards. I hope I'm wrong but it feels like it may not be the 'happy ship' that it seems as Gus seems very 'touchy' - and his comments re Glenn Murray transfer to Palace just didn't ring true.

You can fool some of us all of the time - and all of us some of the time - but you can't fool all of us all of the time.

I note one of the several negative posts above says "we are not good enough". But this begs the question not good enough for what? We had a piece in the week and a number of what I consider to be a sane posts saying at present we are a consolidating good Championship side looking for a sensibe progression to the PL when we are ready for it. Today is clearly a disappointment but I understand that Wolves faught hard and playing 10 men away from home is not necessarily a guarantee of a win. I still do not understand why so many are unduly critical of our team and managerial set up, especially when condidering our recent history!!

Has to go down as a very good result today even though we possibly could have won it. Just a little bit frustrated that Gus keeps tinkering with the side when he needs to leave well alone. Agree with Dobbie coming in for Barnes but why oh why leave Buckley our best player at the moment on the bench. Lopez has no pace and just slows everything down. That is two goals in two games now for Dobbie so leave well alone. Play Buckley as much as possible and I think apart from Dunk we have a side to have a very good season. El Ab must return ASAP in place of Dunk.

Three different goal scorers for us today, that's good.
We didn't beat 10 men, not good.
Bridge off injured not good.
A point away from home against a decent side, is good.
Conceding in the last minute not good.
Three points off play off place is good.

All in all a day of mixed blessings but I'll take the away point as positive.

- WE ARE ONLY 3 POINTS OF THE PLAYOFFS AND HAVE GOT ONE OF OUT HARDEST GAMES OUT THE WAY.

Roll on Huddersfield next weekend!
I'd hardly call it a fantastic point. It's a shambles. Even Gus said we will not get easier games. We played for 45 mins against 10 men yet still conceded 2 goals. We scored 3 when it could have been 8 or 9. Look at Watford's result, they demonstrated how to play against 10 men !!. Why is Barnes preferred to Hoskins ? We are not unlucky, we are not winning because we are not good enough. A poor result !!
I thought Watford were playing against 9 men (one red card and an injury after three halftime subs)?
Fine, we are obviously people who share different points of view. I look on the bright side and you on the dark. I know where I'd rather be... and that's the sort of attitude we as fans need to transfer over into the team to keep this unbeaten in 4 run going.

Comes on here saying don’t get upset guys when no one is upset.

Trying to poke us with the West Ham result last season.

Saying that the 16,000 newer and younger fans will walk away from the club.

Suggesting it’s not a happy ship.

Implying that the Glenn Murray move was not amicable.

Saying that Gus is fooling us.

Smells of Troll all over.
