Seagulls miss FA Cup quarter-final chance

2:32 pm on 18 February 2014

Brighton and Hove Albion were five minutes away from a place in English football's FA Cup quarter-finals but now face a fifth-round replay after drawing 1-1 with Premier League side Hull City.

Argentine striker Leonardo Ulloa raced away to elegantly chip the desperately advancing Hull goalkeeper on the half hour mark and it looked like Brighton had booked their last-eight clash for the first time since 1986.

But Hull struck back through Yannick Sagbo on the 85 minute mark to book a home replay.

Another Premier League outfit, Sunderland - who are managed by former Seagulls manager Gus Poyet - awaits the winners at home in the quarter-finals.
