Ryan Saves Late Penalty To Earn Albion Point At Potters

CHARLIE ADAM'S missed penalty in stoppage time means Stoke City remain in the bottom three with hopes of Premier League survival looking bleak.

- Stoke are unbeaten in their last 17 home games against Brighton in all competitions (W9 D8 L0), since losing 1-0 in a second tier match in September 1961.

And the forward's mood will hardly have improved when Ryan flung himself to his right to keep out Adam's effort from 12 yards, Lewis Dunk pulling off a superb tackle to prevent the Scot tapping in the rebound.

Paul Lambert was sacked three years ago by Aston Villa after he took them down into the Premier League. The Staffordshire club could slip down into 19th place should Huddersfield Town beat Bournemouth on Sunday.

Jose Izquierdo put the Seagulls in front on 32 minutes.

And Stoke made the most of the reprieve with a textbook finish from Shaqiri.

The visitors nearly opened the scoring when Shane Duffy knocked down a free kick for the run of Glenn Murray, but he lashed his effort wide from an acute angle under pressure from Ryan Shawcross.

Playing alongside his father, Gerry, in the pro-am, McIlroy posted rounds of 68-74-72 to miss the 4-under number by three. A further shot adrift are the likes of four-time champion Phil Mickelson , Spaniard Jon Rahm and Australian Jason Day .


The Potters' best attempt at a response came nearly instantly when Moritz Bauer broke down the right from kickoff, although new signing Badou Ndiaye sent his first-time volley over the crossbar. Shaqiri received the ball outside the box, with the Swiss global afforded too much time and space to take a touch before curling a handsome shot out of Ryan's reach into the bottom left corner of the goal.

Pascal Gross had ample time to pick out a cross from the left and the onrushing Davy Propper headed over the top from the centre of the area.

Then the drama began as Xherdan Shaqiri's goal made it 1-1, the Swiss midfielder picked up the ball on the edge of the box and curling a delightful low strike into the far corner.

Brighton continued to push for a victor despite being frustrated by the Potters, and they might have found one through Propper, who perhaps should have taken a touch before sending Leonardo Ulloa's knockdown straight into the arms of Butland.

The Australian global dived the right way to save Charlie Adams' spot kick after Dale Stephens was judged to have fouled Jese in the box.

But Brighton resisted a late fightback from the home team to leave Stoke still under the dreaded dotted line.
