    Glenn Murray converted a late penalty kick to complete his brace as Brighton and Hove Albion came back to draw Fulham 2-2 at the Amex Stadium on Saturday.

    Andre Schurrle and Aleksandar Mitrovic had put the Cottagers ahead, but the latter went to the doghouse by conceding an unthreatened late penalty.

    Pascal Gross had a PK saved by Marco Bettinelli in the 25th minute.

    Jean Michael-Seri pulled the strings for the opener, finding Schurrle for a finish — and combination — that had the Cottagers’ support dreaming.

    Lewis Dunk‘s error allowed Mitrovic to make it 2-0, as the Serbian striker darted onto a poor back pass and finished his second bite at the apple after a Mathew Ryan save.

    Murray pulled one back for Brighton with his 25th Premier League goal, belting Anthony Knockaert‘s pass into the goal following a giveaway from Fulham’s Maxime Le Marchand.

    Mitrovic went from GOAT to goat when he handled a low-pressure ball in the 18, and Brighton’s second penalty kick of the night was a converted one.
