10-men Sheffield United earned a point away at Brighton as Danny Welbeck’s late strike cancelled out Jayden Bogle’s first Premier League goal.
Sheffield United found themselves in trouble early on when midfielder John Lundstram was sent off for a poor challenge on Joel Veltman after referee Peter Banks upgraded his original yellow card to a red via the VAR monitor.
Brighton dominated the game for large spells and had good chances through striker Neal Maupay who saw efforts denied by Chris Basham and Ethan Ampadu in the first half.
Brighton failed to make the man advantage count and on the hour mark went behind as second half substitute Jayden Bogle scored his first Premier League goal when his shot bounced up into the top corner of Robert Sanchez’s goal.
Sheffield United missed a golden opportunity to seal their first PL win at the 14th attempt when Oliver Burke shot his effort over the bar.
Brighton with their man advantage continued to push late on and were rewarded for their efforts when second half substitute Danny Welbeck equalised with just three minutes to go when he scrambled the ball past Blades keeper Aaron Ramsdale.
Brighton squandered a chance to take all three points in stoppage time when Alireza Jahanbakhsh hit the post in a goal line scramble following immense Brighton pressure.
The result now means that Sheffield United remain bottom of the table on two points whilst Brighton stays in 16th on 12 points, just two points above the relegation zone.
