As ever, thanks for your company. There is still plenty of Premier League action to follow here on BBC Sport, so you can still occupy the rest of your day with live text commentaries.

FT: Brighton 2-2 Burnley

Michael Keane, who scored Burnley's injury-time equaliser, told Sky Sports: "It's justice really after the first header was ruled out.

"We are top of the table with seven games left - there is a long way to go.

"But we have a few home games to come and if we get a few there, we will be in a great position."


Blackburn 1-2 Preston

Preston hold out for a hard-fought win at 10-man Blackburn.

The hosts took an early lead through Elliott Ward's close range volley but Shane Duffy's red card turned the game on its head.

The Rovers defender saw red for handling Joe Garner's shot on the line and the former Rovers striker scored from the spot to level.

Jordan Hugill put Preston in front with a volley from Paul Gallagher's cross before the break and thereafter Simon Grayson's men kept Blackburn at bay.


Brighton 2-2 Burnley

Michael Keane rescues a point for leaders Burnley in the 93rd minute, having had a valid leveler ruled out minutes earlier.

Sharing the spoils means Brighton remain third in the table, while the Clarets go three points clear of Middlesbrough in second.

GOAL (Keane)

Brighton 2-2 Burnley

Michael Keane will not be denied a second time, he levels with a powerful header from a Matthew Taylor corner.

That all came from a needless foul from Lewis Dunk. A free-kick to Burnley in a great position on the right sees the ball cleared for a corner. From there, Keane levels.

Brighton 2-1 Burnley

We are into injury-time now and the ball continues to be pumped into the box by Burnley. We have five minutes of added time to go.

Blackburn 1-2 Preston

Preston sub Jermaine Beckford is in on goal but, with a tight angle, he fires across the face of goal and there are no takers.

Blackburn still in this.

Brighton 2-1 Burnley

Did it cross the line? Drama. Huge, huge drama at the Amex Stadium.

Burnley's Michael Keane powers a header goalward from a corner, but the effort is not given despite replays showing that it was just over the line before Steve Sidwell could clear.

Brighton 2-1 Burnley

Matthew Taylor with time on the right to try pick out a cross for Burnley, but he over-hits and the chance is gone. 


Brighton 2-1 Burnley

Brighton's Tomer Hemed makes way for Steve Sidwell to join the action. The hosts will want to lock things up in midfield and take the three points.

Brighton 2-1 Burnley

Time ticking away. And long balls into the box it is. Well, one at least as Burnley look for a late leveler.


Brighton 2-1 Burnley

Ashley Barnes, welcome back.

The forward sees his first action of the season, having undergone knee surgery almost a year ago.

Barnes, a former Brighton player, is given a warm ovation as he replaces Andre Gray.

The hosts also make a change with Gaetan Bong on for Bruno.

Brighton 2-1 Burnley

Brighton are presented with a huge opening, Jamie Murphy breaking down the left.

While James Wilson was screaming for the ball in the box, the pass is played behind the forward and the attack peters out. That is as good a chance as there has been this half.

Blackburn 1-2 Preston

Preston still have a narrow lead against 10-man Blackburn.

The hosts have pressed for an equaliser since the break but visiting keeper Anders Lindegaard hasn't really been forced into a notable save.

Brighton 2-1 Burnley

Burnley are a growing threat now.

A header wide from Sam Vokes is indicative of how they are slowly, but surely creating more. David Stockdale wasn't taking any chances as he flung himself across goal. But no intervention was needed by the Brighton keeper.


Brighton 2-1 Burnley

Burnley with another change, David Jones off for Dean Marney.

Brighton 2-1 Burnley

Great reaction save from Burnley keeper Tom Heaton to deny Anthony Knockaert, who fires low with a first-time effort after meeting a James Wilson pass inside the box.

Silky build-up work from the hosts to create the opening.


Brighton 2-1 Burnley

Burnley boss Sean Dyche goes to the bench for the first time with Scott Arfield making way for Matthew Taylor.

Brighton 2-1 Burnley

Another heavy coming together in the middle of the pitch and it's those two again - Burnley's Joey Barton and Beram Kayal.

Was that a stray arm from Barton? The Brighton crowd chant "OFF, OFF, OFF". He does leave the field... after treatment. No card.

Brighton 2-1 Burnley

That incident was a distraction from what is becoming an increasingly confident Brighton performance.

James Wilson has threatened in the box and Anthony Knockaert has kept up his fine deliveries.

Brighton 2-1 Burnley

Joey Barton with a stomp on Beram Kayal's leg. Painful.

Now, it must be said the initial challenge seemed okay. The jump and attempt to clear the Brighton player, however, sees Barton come down heavily just below Kayal's knee.

There will be stud marks there, but the officials take no action.

Brighton 2-1 Burnley

Just about the flattest period of play that we've had all day.

Tomer Hemed is flagged for offside as he tries to race away for Brighton. Was a close call that. 

Brighton 2-1 Burnley

Andre Gray picking up a long ball on the left for Burnley, the ball is worked to the right and switched quick back the other way.

Neat build-up, but Brighton had the attack covered from all sides.

Brighton 2-1 Burnley

Burnley certainly are not looking like a side flustered by the scoreline right now.

They are moving the ball about with their usual patience. Brighton, however, have the first effort of the half with Jamie Murphy bending a shot wide. Harmless, really.


Brighton 2-1 Burnley

Burnley have 45 minutes to pull this one back and ensure they remain a good few points clear at the top of the table.

As it stands, Brighton will move within a point of the summit.

People's Cup highlights


In case you've missed it, you can still catch the highlights of the 2016 FA People's Cup finals on iPlayer right now.

Here's a taster.....

The big one coming...

El Clasico? Lo siento, no hablo Espanol.

No, when I talk about the BIG game this weekend, I'm referring to the trip that League One promotion hopefuls Barnsley and League Two highflyers Oxford United are making to Wembley Stadium tomorrow.

Barnsley go into Johnstone's Paint Trophy final on the back of five wins in their last seven league games. 

Michael Appleton's Oxford side have fine form for the upset this season. They have already triumphed over bitter rivals Swindon Town and League One Millwall to reach Sunday's final. And in January, Oxford beat Swansea City 3-2 to knock the Premier League side out of the FA Cup.

The Wembley arch awaits. Exciting times!

Catch live text commentary right here on the BBC Sport website. Oh, the same goes for El Clasico tonight as Barcelona host Real Madrid. 

A weekend cupset?

It's quarter-final weekend in the Women's FA Cup and and there has been some fighting talk.

They pay to play - but can third-tier side Sporting Club Albion climb an "astronomical mountain" and beat Manchester City?

Albion striker Leigh Dugmore is determined to lead the charge and sent a cheeky tweet declaring their intent.

"Lucy Bronze, I'm coming for you," tweeted Dugmore, who was playing for Leafield Athletic in the fourth tier of English football last season, while Bronze was starring for England at the Women's World Cup in Canada.

Elsewhere, second division side Aston Villa face holders Chelsea, while Arsenal host Notts County and Sunderland take on Reading.

Still to come...

We are only just getting started with Championship action today, as there are eight other matches to come from 15:00 BST.

  • Bolton Wanderers v Reading
  • Cardiff City v Derby County
  • Charlton Athletic v Birmingham City
  • Fulham v MK Dons
  • Huddersfield Town v Sheffield Wednesday
  • Hull City v Bristol City
  • Nottingham Forest v Brentford
  • Rotherham United v Leeds United
  • Wolverhampton Wanderers v Ipswich Town

You can get your fill of match reports and reaction here on BBC Sport.


Blackburn 1-2 Preston

It could be a tough afternoon for the hosts.

They took the lead when defender Elliott Ward volleyed home from close range but Shane Duffy was sent off for handling a Joe Garner effort on the line and the former Rovers man levelled from the spot.

Simon Grayson's side went ahead just before the break when another former Rovers man, Paul Gallagher, crossed for Jordan Hugill to volley home.


Brighton 2-1 Burnley

And breather. Seriously, the tempo of this game has been incredible.

Hosts Brighton are deserving of their lead, with Anthony Knockaert restoring their leader after Dale Stephen's effort was cancelled out by Andre Gray.

Brighton 2-1 Burnley

Off the post. Ghosting in on the far post, Tomer Hemed's headers comes off the woodwork and Anthony Knockaert has a follow-up effort saved.

GOAL (Knockaert)

Brighton 2-1 Burnley

Anthony Knockaert gets ball to feet in the area and then dances, twists and turns to make room for himself to shoot.

Eventually, he gets his strike away and a deflection beats Tom Heaton. Knockaert deserves that goal for his first-half exploits.

GOAL - Blackburn 1-2 Preston (Hugill)

A cross from Paul Gallagher is excellently volleyed into the roof of the net by Jordan Hugill.


Brighton 1-1 Burnley

Sam Baldock's day is done as he limps off the pitch for Brighton to be replaced by James Wilson. 

Seems Baldock tweaked his hamstring with that shot a few moments earlier.

Brighton 1-1 Burnley

A moment's respite after a hectic 10 minutes.

Sam Baldock gets in on the action of putting Burnley under pressure, forcing Tom Heaton to save. The chances have really piled up. Exhilarating stuff at the Amex Stadium.

Brighton 1-1 Burnley

They scored in quick succession, now both sides go close again.

Dale Stephens goes wide for Brighton and Burnley's Michael Keane heads wastefully off target.

Tomer Hemed then sees a glorious chance go wide of the post for the hosts. That is the best of the lot.

GOAL (Gray)

Brighton 1-1 Burnley

WHAMMY. Andre Gray buries it to level from close range.

Brighton fail to clear a corner at their end and the loose ball is fired home for Gray's 23rd goal of the season.

GOAL (Stephens)

Brighton 1-0 Burnley

Brighton's attacking attentions shift to the right as they search for a more fruitful route to goal.

A chance is made for Sam Baldock. It's blocked.

The ensuing corner produces a chance and then we have another from the left. This time, Dale Stephens is in at the back post to bundle the corner from Anthony Knockaert into the net with his knee.

Brighton 0-0 Burnley

This stat snap-shot says it all really.

Burnley's Andre Gray with the only shot on goal so far. And it was a tame effort.

All Brighton's endeavour has so far come to nothing.
