Stoke boss Lambert 'devastated' after Brighton draw

Chris Hughton's side have struggled on the road this year

Chris Hughton's side have struggled on the road this year

Jese Rodriguez was pushed in the area by Dale Stephens in the 88th minute at the bet365 Stadium and reacted angrily after not being allowed to take the spot-kick.

There was yet more drama to come, however, in injury time with Adam nearly scoring directly from the corner that followed and a goalbound Mame Diouf header being nodded off the line by Anthony Knockaert's acrobatic clearance.

The Seagulls had taken a first-half lead through a clinical finish from Colombia winger Jose Izquierdo before the 18th-placed Potters, who remain in the bottom three on goal difference, levelled through a curling effort from Switzerland worldwide Xherdan Shaqiri 22 minutes from time.

Speaking after the contest, however, Lambert claimed that it would be wrong to blame individuals, despite the missed attempt ensuring that Stoke remain in the bottom three.

Stoke required Jack Butland after just 92 seconds, with the England goalkeeper producing a fine save to prevent Izquierdo from finding the top corner.


Adam moved forward in slow motion and somehow contrived to see his shot blocked by Lewis Dunk in one of the most remarkable moments of the season so far. That was the precursor to a stunning ending that started when Jese was felled by Stephens.

Unfortunately his his effort saved by Mat Ryan and then cleared by Lewis Dunk.

Next up for Albion, Coventry City in the FA Cup 5th round at the Amex next Saturday (17 February).

- Jose Izquierdo has been directly involved in four of Brighton's last seven Premier League goals (2 goals, 2 assists).
