Burnley moved off the bottom in The Championship, but were forced to come form behind to earn a 1-1 draw against Brighton at Turf Moor.

Garreth O'Connor scored from the penalty spot to earn a share of the points for Burnley, who had conceded on 25 minutes courtesy of Paul McShane's first goal for Albion.

Burnley had started brightly with Jon Harley's crosses from the left causing problems, but Brian Jensen in the Clarets' goal had to be alert after coming on to replace injured keeper Danny Coyne.

Ade Akinbiyi tested Wayne Henderson with a drive from just inside the area, and again with a header from the resultant corner but it was Brighton that opened the scoring against the run of play.

Leon Knight's corner was swung in by Sebastien Carole and McShane rose to head home.

Eight minutes later Burnley replied, when John McGreal was fouled by Kerry Mayo and Garreth O'Connor scored his third of the season from the penalty spot.

Akinbiyi, Gifton Noel-Williams and Garreth O'Connor all came close to sealing a win, but Brighton held out for a point.
