A now familiar end of season performance left Clarets with only one win from their last six games as this disappointing point left them in the safety zone and did little to preserve Brighton's Championship status.

A fine Claret - John McGreal
Mark McGhee was upbeat in his post-match assessment and he could be rightly so after his team survived a first half, in which his side were definitely second best, before having the better of a second half in which Clarets once again seemed to fade as the game progressed beyond the half time cuppas.

The match was preceded by the 500 milers parade around the pitch, and the team played out the game in sponsorless shirts that looked decidedly pale due to the names printed into the shirts on this commemorative occasion.
