Brighton's play-off hopes are now all but over as they are held to a home draw by Watford.

Brighton & Hove Albion's play-off hopes took another blow this evening as they were held to a 2-2 draw by Watford.

The visitors made a perfect start to the match when they took the lead after just eight minutes through Sean Murray's 25-yard free kick.

Ashley Barnes had a chance to draw the Seagulls level but he sliced his shot wide before Watford doubled their lead courtesy of a Troy Deeney penalty on the stroke of half time.

Albion pulled a goal back 10 minutes after the break when Inigo Calderon broke into the box after exchanging passes with Gary Dicker before finding a way past Thomas Kuszczak at the second time of asking.

Gus Poyet's men completed their comeback 10 minutes from time, this time Will Buckley getting the goal having been found by Vicente.

The result means that Brighton drop down to ninth, now five points off the play-off spots with just two games to go, while Watford move up a place to 13th.
