Albion's players get ready to attack a set-piece delivery.

Brighton & Hove Albion shared the points with Huddersfield Town at the Amex Stadium on Saturday afternoon, as the sides drew 1-1 on the south coast.

Solly March gave the Seagulls the lead before Steve Mounie equalised moments later. Davy Propper was then shown a straight red card for a challenge on Jonathan Hogg after the break.

Here are five key moments from the game, which moved both sides one point closer to securing Premier League safety.

Fast start

Chris Hughton’s side came out the blocks quickly in an electric start to the game.

Propper ran clean through on goal after a long ball over the top from Ezequiel Schelotto, but the Dutchman fired just inches wide inside the opening 60 seconds.

The hosts didn’t lose confidence, however, and continued to pile on the pressure as they went in search of a breakthrough.

Marching on

March drilled a low-driven effort from 25 yards to break the deadlock, although the goal was given as an own goal after going in off Jonas Lossl.

Albion created the goal with some excellent build-up play. Jose Izquierdo cut inside and played the ball to Propper, who found the goalscorer just outside the area, before he pulled the trigger.

Lift from Bruno

Captain Bruno tried to lift the crowd midway through the second half as the nerves started to build inside the Amex.

The Albion full-back waved his arms in the air at the supporters as he warmed up on the touchline in a bid to raise the spirits.

Propper sees red

The Dutch international was pulling the strings in the middle of the park throughout the game, but he was harshly given his marching orders in the 74th minute.

Jurgen Locadia was ready to come on, but Hughton had to reshuffle his pack and opted for Beram Kayal instead of the club’s record signing.

Albion’s one-man disadvantage set up a nervy finish to the game, but the Seagulls managed to hold on for a point.

Lossl earns his money

The Terriers goalkeeper raced out to close down Izquierdo in the closing stages when the Colombian found himself clear through on goal.

Lossl then recovered to tip Schelotto’s powerful effort over the crossbar to prevent the Seagulls from securing all three points at the Amex.
