Managers Reaction 

Leeds boss Jesse Marsch said: “Our goal was to get three points but we knew any points and Burnley losing could shift the pressure the other way. Burnley has a match in hand but to fight and stay in the match especially in the second half when we were quite good. We were a bit unlucky not to come away with more. The first corner we had our chance but the way it’s going it hits our own player in the face and prevents it from being a goal. In the first half, we couldn’t settle. Our confidence in the ball wasn’t good enough.”

Brighton boss Graham Potter said: “In the first half we created some really good opportunities. We had lots of good play, and good opportunities, and got into the final third and the box a lot. But, in fairness, in the second half Rob [Sanchez] had to make a couple of good saves, so I wouldn’t begrudge Leeds their point. We probably needed the second goal to kill it off, and Danny’s chance was the best one, but that’s football. We didn’t get it and in the end, you always leave yourself open to that.”
