Southampton 1 - 1 Brighton

Brighton needs a point from their last two games to stay in the Premier League after Danny Ings’ 20th league goal of the season denied them victory at Southampton.

The Seagulls would have secured a place in the top flight with a win and went ahead through Neal Maupay’s low shot.

But the Saints improved in the second half and deservedly equalised when Ings easily beat goalkeeper Mat Ryan.

Ings is the first Saints player to score 20 goals in a Premier League season since James Beattie in 2002-03.

The former Liverpool forward was once again outstanding in attack for the home side, having an effort rightly ruled out for offside in the first half and cracking a shot against the post before he eventually did score.

His goal also ensured that Southampton did not set a new club record of 11 home defeats in a Premier League season.

Brighton is six points clear of 18th-placed Bournemouth with six available and has a better goal difference, but a point against Newcastle next Monday would cement their place in the top flight.
