Brighton & Hove Albion's Craig Mackail-Smith cancels out a Bakary Sako opener as his side go into half-time tied 1-1 with Wolves.

Brighton & Hove Albion's Craig Mackail-Smith cancelled out a Bakary Sako opener to send his side into half-time tied 1-1 with Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The visitors created the first opportunity of the afternoon when David Lopez got past his maker and let fly, but it drifted wide of the upright.

Early chances were otherwise scarce, but the hosts were in front before the half-hour mark through Sako.

The Frenchman found the net from 12 yards after playing a neat one-two Kevin Doyle to cap off an impressive team move.

Brighton hit back just before the interval, when Bruno swung in an inviting cross from the right and Mackail-Smith fired into the top corner to make it 1-1 going into half-time.
