Albion end with a draw
Albion rounded off their return to the Championship with a 0-0 draw at bitterly cold Barnsley today.
It was a tame way to finish what has been a momentous season for the club.
But they would have ended in defeat had home sub John Stones not headed wide from point blank range with the final touch of the match.
The sense of anti-climax was perhaps summed up when a frustrated looking Vicente fired a free-kick over the bar on 90 minutes.
The Seagulls overcame a sluggish start to have the better chances in a quiet first half.
Will Buckley was involved in their better moments.
The winger popped up just beyond the far post to knock the ball back after Vicente had chipped a great cross from the byline but Ashley Barnes’ shot was off target.
Then Buckley’s terrific run and cross on the right set up Gary Dicker for a drive which David Button did well to save.
Barnsley defenders almost contrived to turn an Inigo Calderon cross into their own net while the Tykes’ one moment of menace was ended by Lewis Dunk’s timely sliding tackle as Stephen Dawson bore down on goal.
The second half was a non-event, although David Gonzalez capped a very assured display between the sticks by holding on to Jim O’Brien’s well struck drive.
