Stoke boss Lambert ‘devastated’ after Brighton draw


Brighton held Stoke City 1-1 at the Brit on Saturday.

Charlie Adam missed a last-minute penalty as Stoke dropped two precious points in a dramatic 1-1 draw with relegation rivals Brighton.

Substitute Adam had only been on the pitch for around 10 minutes when his spot-kick was superbly saved by Albion goalkeeper Mat Ryan before the rebound was somehow cleared by Lewis Dunk.

The Seagulls had taken a first-half lead through a clinical finish from Colombia winger Jose Izquierdo before the 18th-placed Potters, who remain in the bottom three on goal difference, levelled through a curling effort from Switzerland international Xherdan Shaqiri 22 minutes from time.

“Devastated for the players,” said Potters boss Paul Lambert.

“We got a penalty in the last minute and it was a big opportunity to win the game.

“All second half we were well on top and got a great goal after Brighton had done really well first half.

“We changed the system second half and we were much better. We scored and had some great opportunities.”
