Albion boss Chris Hughton says a draw at Stoke felt like two points dropped - despite Mathew Ryan's late penalty save preserving a point.

The Seagulls were good value for the lead provided by Jose Izquierdo at the bet365 Stadium and had chances on the break either side of Xherdan Shaqiri's second half equaliser for the hosts.

Hughton said: "At this moment we feel like it's probably two points dropped, against a good Stoke side, who are in good form. I thought we had the better chances, but in a player like Xherdan Shaqiri, there's always that quality to get a goal."

Hughton believes ref Bobby Madley got it wrong when he awarded a late penalty to Stoke against Dale Stephens for a shove inside the box on Jese.

Ryan saved Charlie Adam's spot-kick and Lewis Dunk denied Adam from the rebound. The Australian keeper also then foiled a cheeky attempt by Adam to beat him direct from a corner, while late sub Anthony Knockaert nodded a Mame Diouf header from a corner off the line in a frenetic finish.

Hughton said: "I certainly felt it was not a penalty, but it was a great save by Mat Ryan. It was incredibly soft, you've got two players holding each other, if anything my player is pushing him away and the Stoke lad has gone down very easily. I think it's very, very harsh.

"But saying that, both the save and the tackle were excellent, and we needed Mat Ryan again to make a save straight after from the corner. If you ever need a reason for players following up a penalty, Lewis Dunk has showed why with that tackle."
