Derby and Brighton play out an entertaining 0-0 draw at Pride Park.

Derby County and Brighton & Hove Albion could not be separated in today's Championship match as it ended 0-0.

The visitors came close to breaking the deadlock when Andrea Orlandi got on the end of Bruno's cross, but his header went just over.

Stephen Dobbie and Ashley Barnes then linked up well to create a shooting chance but the former scuffed his shot wide.

The Seagulls came within inches of taking the lead in fortuitous circumstances four minutes into the second half when Liam Bridcutt's deflected shot looped over Adam Legzdins and hit the Derby crossbar.

Brighton hit the bar for a second time with just under 20 minutes left, with Legzdins producing a fine save to tip the ball onto the woodwork.

Derby had to wait until the 73rd minute for their first shot on target, and it came through John Brayford's long-range strike which was parried wide by Thomas Kuszczak.

Neither side could find a breakthrough in the final 15 minutes as they had to settle for a share of the spoils.
