17th April 2012- Championship, Brighton & Hove Albion 2 Watford 2


BBC Sport: Brighton’s slim hopes of claiming a Championship play-off spot are over despite them coming from two goals down to snatch a draw with Watford. Albion were facing defeat after Sean Murray’s free-kick and a Troy Deeney penalty put the Hornets in control. But Inigo Calderon pulled one back and Will Buckley scored a late goal against his former club to salvage a point.

Sky Sports: Will Buckley completed a dramatic Brighton comeback with the equaliser as they fought back to draw 2-2 with Watford at the Amex Stadium.

BHappy: The Amex, then, is a stadium which reflects an affluent and aspirational city. In any other hands, I suspect that this would be an impressive, vaguely stylish but ultimately vacuous ground, another out-of-town fibreglass sponsordome. The choice of lucky chocolate gives it away: a Marks and Spencers Mint Truffle, for pity’s sake, bought at the station because you know there’s not a corner shop (or even a corner) within a country mile of the ground… But there’s been so much energy, so much heartache and struggle, invested in this place. Finally, they’re here; finally, this is a club that’s no longer held back by the weight of bitter history, as much a righting-of-wrongs in its own way as Wimbledon’s regained League status. The Amex is rather more than the sum of its parts…and the noise that rolls around the sweeping, sculpted roof is pretty bloody heart-warming, if you’re at all inclined towards empathy. It’s a wonderful place, frankly.

 Quite the most depressing ninety minutes I can remember watching at Vicarage Road, for all sorts of reasons.


 Crystal Palace gave their survival hopes a boost with a win at Watford, who are now hovering a point above Palace in the drop zone.
