BRIGHTON 2-2 FULHAM
FT: That's that! Fine game at the Amex, though Fulham will feel they should have held onto the three points.
They were defensively short for Murray's first, and Mitrovic's unncessary handball got the hosts a point. Jokanovic will be fuming.
90+5: Free-kick to Brighton, crossing position on the left. Dangerous...
... but Lee Probert blows up! Boos around the Amex! We had 10 seconds remaining by my watch!
90+4: What a game! At the other end, Johansen slips in Mitrovic, who looks to round Ryan at an acute angle. He does, but has his back to goal at the byline, and Brighton just recover!
La Marchand is then booked for a foul on March.
90+2: Brighton attack. Locadia on the ball plenty, as the hosts pile the box.
Bong's long ball is cleared as far as Montoya, but his 25-yard volley is a couple yards wide!
90: Five minutes added on!
88: Game being played in the middle third, before Montoya's drifted cross is headed goalwards by Murray. Bettinelli saves to his right...
86: Change for Fulham. Chambers is on, replacing Schurrle. Happy with the draw?
CHANCE! Nearly a third for Fulham! Good work from Mitrovic, Sessegnon sells Montoya, but he pokes it into the grateful hands of Ryan 10 yards out!
GOAL! BRIGHTON 2-2 FULHAM (Murray, 84)
Buried! Top left, Bettinelli goes the other way! Brighton are level when it seemed they were completely out of this!
Can they get a winner?!
BRIGHTON 1-2 FULHAM
83: PENALTY TO BRIGHTON! Oh my, Mitrovic goes from hero to zero.
The high ball drops down to the striker, and he controls it with his arm! Great spot from the linesman, who flags and it's a second penalty to Brighton!
Murray to step up...
82: Solly March stands over a free-kick on the left, good crossing position. Johansen is then booked for not retreating, but he's fuming because there's no vanishing spray!
Good ball, Murray piles in and it's cleared...
80: This one is up in the air now. Brighton have 10 minutes to find a leveller, but Fulham are still working the ball cleverly. Brighton now have three strikers on the pitch, but the supply has dried up!
78: SAVE! Montroya with a cut-back cross, Locadia gets a header towards goal but has to create all of the power, and Bettinelli saves and holds well!
Since his Fulham debut in February, Aleksandar Mitrovic has scored more goals in English league football than any other player (16).
75: Changes for Brighton too, Jahanbakhsh and Locadia are on for Knockaert and Propper. Home fans not too pleased; they believe Knockaert should remain on!
73: Changes for Fulham; Anguissa comes off, replaced by Johansen, and Sessegnon replaces Vietto.
71: Huge shout for handball, but mainly from the Fulham fans, as Schurrle's effort is blocked by Duffy. He looks in pain, having got his body in the way. Probert right not to point to the spot.
69: Brighton come forward, the ball falls nicely to Bissouma 30 yards out, but his half volley is high, wide and not very handsome.
GOAL! BRIGHTON 1-2 FULHAM (Murray, 67)
The atmosphere changes, and we have a game on our hands!
Fulham find themselves with two defenders against three as Knockaert piles forward. He has Murray in space on the left, finds him inside the box, and he duly slots under Bettinelli! Huge roar at the Amex, they sense a comeback!
BRIGHTON 0-2 FULHAM
65: Brighton look to reply immediately, but Murray's header from a deep cross is wide of goal.
GOAL! BRIGHTON 0-2 FULHAM (Mitrovic, 62)
What a player Mitrovic is turning out to be for Fulham. He steals the ball on the right wing, drives goalwards at an angle and forces Ryan into a good save with his left hand.
It comes straight back to the Serb, however, and he tucks it away well!
BRIGHTON 0-1 FULHAM
60: Brighton looking to pile the pressure on now, and the home fans are reacting. Movement on their bench too, as Bissouma comes on for Gross.
Murray with a late challenge on Fosu-Mensah, and he goes in the book.
58: Bettinelli tries a precise pass from the goal kick, but Knockaert is onto it quickly. He gets into the box on the right, sticks it across the face of goal, but Murray is a couple yards off the pace!
56: CHANCE! What a chance for March. He must score here.
Propper dodges one tackle and slips March through on goal with a beautiful pass with the outside of his boot.
March is one-on-one with Bettinelli, but thrashes it a yard over the bar! He's had a decent game, but that's poor.
54: Schurrle has a go from 30 yards, but it sails well high and wide of Ryan's goal. He could have piled it into the box from there...
52: Fulham break through Odoi, who gets deep into the Brighton half and is then taken down by Propper! Definite booking, and Fulham are on top looking best bet for a second.
49: Corner Brighton, won by March. Gross whips it into the near post, and Brighton appeal for a penalty as Dunk goes down. Nothing given by Lee Probert, and rightly so.
47: Gross with a free-kick from deep, but it's too close to goalkeeper Bettinelli in the end. At the moment, Fulham fans are creating all the noise at the Amex.
46: Back under way at the Amex. Can Brighton recover from that double blow in the first half?
HALF-TIME PRICE BOOSTS
Brighton to win 2-1 is now available at 15/2, Andre Schurrle to score a brace is at 8/1 while you can back Glenn Murray to score the game's second goal at 9/2...

HT: Brighton looked to be dominating, but Fulham lead after a wonderful assist from Seri and crisp finish from Schurrle.
Gross missed that penalty midway through the half, and they'll be kicking themselves.
GOAL! BRIGHTON 0-1 FULHAM (Schurrle, 43)
What a lovely goal, and Fulham are one up with a rare foray into the final third!
It's beautiful from Seri, who lifts the ball through the Brighton defence for Schurrle, who swivels and shoots into the bottom left corner as Ryan came rushing out!
Fulham fans go wild!
BRIGHTON 0-0 FULHAM
40: Mawson with a rare loose ball, allowing Knockaert to pick it up with Brighton 3 v 3. He is tackled from behind by Mawson, however, and the ball rolls through to Bettinelli. Great recovery.
38: Corner to Fulham on the left, won by Le Marchand.
Seri crosses, but Dunk does really well to clear inside the six-yard box among a crowd of players.
35: March drives at goal on the left as Brighton break. His left-footed shot is blocked, before Stephens has a wild go from 30 yards. Well over the Fulham bar to the delight of the travelling fans.
33: Murray bullies Odoi in the box with his back to goal, he looks to roll him and shoot, but he volleys well over the bar. He is a handful, however.
31: Vietto receives it in the box, his touch is quite heavy, and Dunk gets a really good foot in to stop any danger.
29: Brighton still putting the pressure on in the final third, looking to keep the momentum from before the penalty. Fulham fans are bouncing after the save.
26: SO CLOSE! Murray nearly makes up for Gross' penalty miss from the resulting corner! Gross whips it in near post, Murray gets up superbly, but his glancing header is inches wide of the far post!
Everyone in the ground thought that was in! Dramatic few minutes.
25: PENALTY SAVED! Gross steps up, goes bottom left, but Bettinelli does superbly to tip it away for a corner! What a save, and it remains level!
24: PENALTY TO BRIGHTON! This is clever from Brighton, and quite controversial.
Knockaert plays in Murray, who is offside, runs towards the ball and then leaves it for Knockaert.
New phase of play, Knockaert slips it back to Murray onside, and he is brought down on the corner of the box by Vietto's lazy challenge!
Gross stepping up...
23: Brighton down to 10 while Gross gets his right foot strapped following an earlier challenge. Slight concern for the hosts, but he'll be back on for now.
21: The game has calmed down a tad in the last five. Fulham playing more in the middle third, and Brighton have dropped off slightly. Fulham fans, of which there are a few thousand, making plenty of noise.
18: SHOT! Half an opportunity for Fulham. Vietto spreads it to Schurrle, whose left-footed cross is slightly behind the unmarked Mitrovic.
Lots of pace on the ball, he looks to hook his header goalwards, but it's a couple yards over. Promising for the visitors, at long last.
16: And a FIFTH corner for Brighton within 15 minutes.
SHOT! Gross again, and Mitrovic heads clear superbly again. Back to gross, Odoi away, March slaloms his way past two defenders on the right and looks for the bottom left corner, but it's blocked well by Mawson!
14: Another Brighton corner, their fourth of the game so far.
Gross with another good corner, right in front of Bettinelli under pressure, and he just about punches it clear! Fulham with their hands full here.
12: Free-kick to Brighton in a dangerous position, out wide left. Gross sticks it back post to Dunk, who is completely unmarked, but his header across goal is cleared by Odoi!
Poor from Fulham, but a waste from the hosts. Corner, taken by Gross, but Anguissa just clears.
10: Fulham manage to get into the final third; Duffy heads away well under pressure, before Seri's tame effort from 25 yards curls into Ryan's hands.
8: Brighton really pressing Fulham early on. It will be tiring, so they'll want that early goal. Fulham are 4-5-1 without the ball, and when they get on it, Schurrle has a bit more freedom. But they're struggling for possession so far.
6: Knockaert takes the corner, driven low across the face of goal, and Mitrovic just gets it away! Very dangerous.
Gross takes the second corner, back post to Montoya this time, his header back across goal is cleared, before Propper's shot is blocked by his own player March.
