Peterborough 0-0 Brighton

Albion kept their play-off bid on course as they played out an enthralling stale-mate with in-form Peterborough.

Both sides forged clear-cut chances, but neither were able to find the decisive breakthrough as the points were shared. A valuable point indeed it turned out for the Seagulls - with immediate rivals losing, they opened the gap over 7th to 3 points, whilst rising to 4th in the table.

Darren Ferguson's fired up Posh side launched straight onto the front foot, and forced Tomasz Kuszczak into a smart stop in the opening minutes - Danny Swanson testing the Pole with a shot from range as Albion were required to weather an early storm and search for a grip-hold in the game.

They soon responded, with Matt Upson heading against the bar from a David Lopez corner - Robert Olejnik appearing to get a vital hand to it to prevent the opener. Whilst the half continued at an exciting tempo, neither side were able to fashion many shooting opportunities.

Following the interval, Dean Hammond saw an effort go wide, before Upson again came close with a header. Albion then nearly suffered a double blow during a hectic 10 minutes. First Andrew Crofts escaped without punishment after he appeared to trip Lee Tomlin, with the Posh striker breaking through on goal.

To compound their disappointment, Tommy Rowe somehow put the ball wide from close range after Tomlin's right wing cross had put it on a plate for the Posh captain. Albion looked to nick it late on, with Wayne Bridge firing just wide after a weaving run, and then Crofts heading against the bar from a Liam Bridcutt centre - but the game finished goalless.

With the hard-earned point, Albion extended their unbeaten run to 6 games, but will hope to return to winning ways as they host Blackpool at the Amex this coming Saturday.
