BHA vs Saints As It Happened
Key moments so far
- It's a point on the road for Saints at the Amex Stadium
- Steven Davis nods Saints into an early lead at Brighton
- Skipper reacts quickest to score after James Ward-Prowse hits the bar from a free kick
- Glenn Murray heads home the equaliser seven minutes into the second half
FULL TIME: Brighton 1-1 Southampton
It ends all square at the Amex Stadium, as Steven Davis' early opener is cancelled out by Glenn Murray's second-half header. That's three games unbeaten for Saints.15.25
Three added minutes
We're into stoppage time at the Amex. Will there be a late winner?
Yellow Card for Gaëtan Bong (Brighton & Hove Albion)
Bong goes right through the back of Long and gets a yellow card for an unnecessary challenge.
Hoedt heads over
Ward-Prowse delivers the ball low, it flicks up off van Dijk and Dutch compatriot Hoedt meets it at the far post, but can only head the ball over with a defender in his way.
Yellow Card for Shane Duffy (Brighton & Hove Albion)
Duffy trips Gabbiadini from behind and it's a free kick to Saints in a dangerous position - almost like a short corner in hockey terms.
Knockaert fires over
Space opens up in front of Knockaert, who has a go from a long way out but his shot flies into the stand behind Forster's goal.
Crucial block from van Dijk
Izquierdo races down the left, cuts inside and shoots with power, but van Dijk stands up and blocks - painfully - at the expense of a corner. Brave defending.
Gabbiadini goes close!
First chance for quite some time for Saints, as Bertrand raids down the left and crosses low to Gabbiadini, who gets across his man and makes a good connection, but his shot flicks up off Dunk and loops over.
Yellow Card for Wesley Hoedt (Southampton)
Hoedt joins Murray in the book for shoving the striker in retaliation.
Yellow Card for Glenn Murray (Brighton & Hove Albion)
Murray tries to kick the ball away from Hoedt after the whistle, and goes into the book for his troubles.
Saints pegged back at the Amex
Fraser Forster stretches but cannot keep out this inch-perfect header from Glenn Murray (pictured far left).
Murray goes close to a second
The same duo combine, as Groß whips in a devilish cross, which this time Murray attacks at the near post but sends the ball high over the crossbar.
Murray heads Brighton level
Saints have been on top at the start of the second half, but now they've been pegged back. Groß gets on the overlap and crosses from the right to Murray, who peels away at the far post and beats Forster at his near post with a well-placed header.
Glenn Murray (51’) | 1 – 1
Boufal nearly sets up Tadić
Cédric finds Boufal in the box, whose clever backheel releases Tadić, but goalkeeper Ryan races from his line to intervene.
Early pressure from Saints
Ward-Prowse delivers a trio of wicked crosses - one free kick and two corners - but the Brighton defence stands tall to deal with the danger.
Back under way for the second half1
Saints get us back up and running, attacking the travelling supporters and defending a 1-0 lead.
HALF TIME: Brighton 0-1 Southampton
That's it for the first half at the Amex Stadium, where Saints lead courtesy of Steven Davis' stooping header in a game short on chances. So far so good! 😇
Best spell for Brighton...
The hosts are upping the ante with half-time approaching. First Knockaert slides in at the far post and sends the ball flying back across goal, before defender Duffy cannot keep his header down from six yards, as Saints survive their biggest scare.
Back in the starting line-up!
Sofiane Boufal is hoping to make the most of this opportunity after being restored to the starting XI following his match-winning contribution against West Brom last time out.
Tadić goes close!
Typical trickery from Boufal takes him to the byeline where he picks out Tadić, who takes a touch and shoots towards the bottom corner, but Dunk gets just enough on it to divert the ball wide for a corner.
Tadić goes down...
Tadić is in pain after an off-the-ball incident with Bong, but the referee is not interested in the Serbian's complaints and play goes on.
Brighton threaten again
Pascal Groß gets himself into a good position in the Saints box, but his cutback is behind everyone in blue and white and the visitors can clear the danger.
First save from Forster
Knockaert delivers a swirling free kick into the danger zone that Pröpper meets with his head, but it's an easy save for Forster.
Saints in control...
There's been very little action at either end, but the one moment of quality from Ward-Prowse is what's opened the door for Saints. It's been a good day for the 3,000 travelling fans so far!
The moment Ward-Prowse connected with the free kick, from which Davis headed in the rebound. Mixed emotions for JWP but Saints are in front!
Davis heads Saints in front!
Ward-Prowse lines up the free kick 30 yards out and is so unlucky to strike the crossbar, but Davis is first to react to head in the rebound from six yards! Get in!
Steven Davis (7’) | 0 – 1
Free kick in shooting range...
Remember that video we posted before kick-off? Saints now have a set-piece in that exact position...
Ward-Prowse keeps it in...
James Ward-Prowse chases a ball towards the byeline and delivers a low cross that causes confusion in the Brighton box, with the hosts expecting the ball to run out of play. Good early intent from Saints.
We're under way!
The action has begun at the Amex! Stay tuned for regular updates...

i think they've been a great example as a club with the progress they've made in recent years, in getting that right balance between bringing young players through whilst maintaining good positions in the league. i don't think too many have done that as well as southampton have.chris hughtonbrighton manager
