BRIGHTON, England (AP) — Brighton was frustrated by a superb performance from Burnley goalkeeper James Trafford as the home side came from behind to draw 1-1 in the English Premier League on Saturday.

Brighton ended up eighth in the standings on goal difference, missing a chance to leapfrog Tottenham, Manchester United and Newcastle.

Burnley's valuable point kept it second to last on goal difference.

Burnley scored against the run of play thanks to Wilson Odobert's sensational solo effort at the end of the first half, and looked set to claim a second away win in the league.

But Simon Adingra headed in from Pascal Gross' cross in the 77th minute and Brighton bombarded the Burnley goal.

Trafford, however, produced the form of his life to keep out, first, Jack Hinshelwood's header then Kaoru Mitoma's bullet at the death.
