BRIGHTON AND HOVE ALBION 2 STOKE CITY 2 Nov 20 (Reuters)- Promoted Brighton’s promising Premier League campaign continued as they twice came from behind to earn a 2-2 draw at home to Stoke City on Monday. Stoke’s Swiss midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri created the opener with a fine long pass to forward Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting who showed skill and composure to finish in the 28th minute. The hosts were furious when their penalty appeal was turned down after Glenn Murray fell under a Ryan Shawcross challenge but they levelled in the 44th as Pascal Gross hooked the ball home after a powerful solo run from Davy Propper. Moments later Stoke restored their advantage when Brighton defender Bruno turned his back on a corner and the ball bounced off him to on-loan Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma who headed home. However, Brighton deserved at least a point and got their just reward on the hour when Colombian winger Jose Izquierdo fired home at the second attempt after a clever Murray pass. The draw leaves Brighton in ninth place on 16 points from 12 games while Stoke are 15th on 13 points.
