Albion have their first away point of the season after a gutsy fightback at Southampton tonight.

Shane Duffy scored and then forced a 90th-minute spot kick for Glenn Murray to convert and secure a 2-2 draw.

It was reward they deserved for their second-half efforts but one which looked out of reach when Danny Ings’ penalty put Saints 2-0 up.

Albion were dismal before the break and trailed to a terrific low long-range drive from Pierre-Emile Hjobjerg which found the far bottom corner.

The Seagulls improved notably in the second half as Davy Propper got on the ball and made things happen.

Anthony Knockaert had a shot parried after going on a run down the middle.

But Saints doubled their lead on 65 minutes when Danny Ings beat Lewis Dunk and got into the box, where he was fouled by Gaetan Bong.

Ings calmly converted the spot kick.

That looked to be game over but Duffy restored Albion hope two minutes later with a towering header from Knockaert’s free-kick, delivered from deep.

Albion pushed for a point after that with Knockaert busy.

The Frenchman’s low cross was flicked just wide at the near post by Alireza Jahanbakhsh.

Albion got their reward on 90 minutes when James Ward-Prowse shoved Duffy in the back at a corner and Murray coolly placed his spot kick down the middle.

Mathew Ryan preserved the point with a fine save in added time from Ryan Bertrand's free-kick.
