Bristol City 0-0 Brighton

Albion earned a useful point to preserve their top six status on an otherwise forgettable night at Ashton Gate.

Indeed, Andrea Orlandi's cross-come-shot in the first half was the only time the Albion brought City stopper Tom Heaton into action, whilst Tomasz Kuszczak was barely forced beyond customary stops in the other net, as the game seemed destined for a goalless outcome.

Paul Anderson had the game's first real chance with almost 20 minutes on the clock, firing a fierce drive at Kuszczak, who mopped up with little trouble. With the hosts in the ascendancy, Brendan Maloney and then Liam Kelly went close, before Jonathan Stead had goal disallowed for a foul on Kuszczak.

Matt Upson prevented Anderon from breaking through on goal with a well-timed tackle as the half drew to a close. The visitors were then forced into an early change as Craig Mackail-Smith went down with a serious-looking injury - Leo Ulloa came on in his place.

Maloney's heavily deflected effort went narrowly wide for the hosts, but chances were few and far between as the game somewhat fizzld out. Albion threatened on the break a few times in the latter stages, though the final shot or pass was continually missing.

With that point, Albion now hold a 2-point gap over 7th placed Forest. They now head to a resurgent Bolton team on Saturday.
