Match ends, Huddersfield Town 1, Brighton and Hove Albion 1.
Huddersfield Town recovered from conceding a goal inside the first minute to draw with Brighton.
Beram Kayal made it 1-0 to the Seagulls after 17 seconds before Town had even touched the ball.
Jacob Butterfield equalised for the hosts after the break with a powerful strike from a tight angle.
Huddersfield, without a win this season, pressed for a winner but visiting keeper David Stockdale saved well from Terriers striker Nahki Wells.
Town, who had taken just one point from their opening two games, made the worst start imaginable when Israeli Kayal curled home after good work by Sam Baldock from the kick-off.
Chris Powell's side could have fallen further behind when another Kayal shot was deflected out for a corner.
Town improved as the half wore on with Butterfield, the target of two bids from Derby County, going close with a free-kick before Ishmael Miller forced a fine save from Stockdale after the interval.
Butterfield equalised for the hosts with a ferocious effort after Brighton failed to clear a corner.
Wells twice went close to winning it for Huddersfield, while substitute Chris O'Grady headed just over for the Seagulls in an exciting end to the game.
Huddersfield manager Chris Powell:
"The goal rocked us in the first period and everyone was stunned. We couldn't get ourselves going and we needed half-time.
"We are a work in progress. We have a few new players and we showed here what we showed last season, that we have to play to our maximum.
"Other teams have spent some money and we know we are in no position to do that."
Brighton boss Chris Hughton:
"If you had said that to me at the start of the season, with two of the three games away from home, I would have been delighted.
"We couldn't have made a better start to the game and it was one of those strikes that as soon as he hit it you knew it was going in.
"There were too many occasions when the first pass went astray. Overall a draw was a fair result but the best two chances of the game fell to us."
