  1. Thank you and goodbye

    Brighton 1-1 Leicester

    Thanks very much for joining us this afternoon.

    Brighton looked on course for three points at the Amex, but Vardy's second-half equaliser from the penalty spot earned the visitors an unlikely point.

    Head here for reaction to all of Saturday's Premier League games.

    See you all next time!

  2. FULL-TIME

    Brighton 1-1 Leicester

    Ten-man Leicester earn a share of the spoils at the Amex.

  3. Post update

    Brighton 1-1 Leicester

    FOUR minutes of added time to be played at the end of the second half.

  4. SUBSTITUTION

    Brighton 1-1 Leicester

    Final change for Brighton - Jurgen Locadia replaces Glenn Murray.

  5. CLOSE!

    Brighton 1-1 Leicester

    So close for Leicester!

    Kelechi Iheanacho drags a shot just wide from the edge of the box.

  6. Post update

    Brighton 1-1 Leicester

    The visitors are going for it now.

    Marc Albrighton sends in a teasing cross but Shane Duffy is on hand to clear.

    This could still go either way...

  7. GOAL - Brighton 1-1 Leicester

    Jamie Vardy

    Vardy makes no mistake from the spot, sending Mat Ryan the wrong way for his first goal since September.

    The ten men of Leicester are level!

    Jamie Vardy
  8. PENALTY

    Brighton 1-0 Leicester

    Kelechi Iheanacho goes tumbling under the challenge of Beram Kayal and Leicester have a spot-kick!

    Vardy to take...

  9. Post update

    Brighton 1-0 Leicester

    Much better from Jose Izquierdo.

    The Colombian cuts inside onto his right foot and lets fly from a promising position, but his effort trickles wide of the target.

    Better than his earlier effort, though.

  10. SUBSTITUTION

    Brighton 1-0 Leicester

    Anthony Knockaert is replaced by Solly March.

    Knockaert has had an unusually quiet afternoon for the hosts.

  11. YELLOW CARD

    Brighton 1-0 Leicester

    That's just silly.

    Jose Izquierdo is booked for kicking the ball away in frustration.

    No need for that.

  12. SUBSTITUTION

    Brighton 1-0 Leicester

    Leicester make their final substitution, bringing on Kelechi Iheanacho for Shinji Okazaki.

    The former Manchester City man has just over 20 minutes to make an impact.

  13. YELLOW CARD

    Brighton 1-0 Leicester

    Bruno is cautioned for a late challenge on Gray.

    That's two Brighton defenders on a yellow card now.

  14. Post update

    Brighton 1-0 Leicester

    Wes Morgan rises highest inside the Brighton penalty area but fails to direct his header on target.

    Ryan seems to have recovered from that earlier Vardy challenge. He was able to take the resulting goal-kick, at any rate.

  15. YELLOW CARD

    Brighton 1-0 Leicester

    Strong challenge on Jamie Vardy by Shane Duffy, who receives a yellow card for his troubles.

    Mat Ryan is also in a spot of bother after being caught by Vardy while attempting a clearance a few moments ago.

  16. Post update

    Brighton 1-0 Leicester

    This is Leicester's best spell of the game by some distance.

    The Foxes win a throw-in on the right-hand side but Okazaki's touch is a poor one and Brighton win back possession.

  17. SUBSTITUTION

    Brighton 1-0 Leicester

    Vardy is on for Demarai Gray.

    The 31-year-old is involved immediately, sending in a low cross towards Shinji Okazaki which Lewis Dunk manages to hack clear.

  18. Post update

    Brighton 1-0 Leicester

    Shinji Okazaki tries to get on the end of Marc Albrighton's long ball but Brighton clear the danger before he can get a touch.

    The Japanese is looking increasingly isolated up front for the visitors.

    But what have we here? Jamie Vardy's getting ready to come on.

  19. Post update

    Brighton 1-0 Leicester

    Quiet start to the second half at the Amex. Brighton are controlling possession but haven't managed to test Kasper Schmeichel since the restart.

    At the other end, Mat Ryan has been a virtual spectator.

  20. Post update

    Brighton 1-0 Leicester

    Not for the first time this afternoon, Jose Izquierdo sends an ambitious long-range effort high over Kasper Schmeichel's crossbar.

    He can do a lot better than that, and he knows it.
