Brighton and Coventry finished all-square at The Withdean Stadium after an entertaining 2-2 draw.

Brighton twice came from behind to secure a point with Colin Kazim-Richards, the man bought with their Coca-Cola windfall following the Win a Player promotion, on the scoresheet for the first time for Albion.

Micky Adams received a warm welcome from the Brighton fans who remember his time in charge of the club fondly.

From the kick off, Sebastien Carole was prominent for the home side but The Sky Blues opened the scoring six minutes before the interval.

Stephen Hughes fired in a cross that was clusmily sliced past Alan Blayney by Manchester United loanee Paul McShane.

Andrew Whing had to head an Albert Jarrett effort off the line before the break but Brighton hit back soon after the restart.

Jarrett's cross eluded Stephen Bywater and hit the woodwork with Leon Knight on hand to touch it over the line.

The home fans' joy was short-lived as Claus Jorgensen's header proved too powerful for Blayney after good work from Marcus Hall.

Substitute Kazim-Richards made it 2-2 with his first involvement in the game, beating Whing to finish smartly past Bywater.

Both sides had chances to win it but Jarrett, Knight and James Scowcroft were all unable to convert.
