The visitors took the lead through Lewis Dunk’s header in the sixth minute, but the Bluebirds equalised through Callum Paterson profited from a left-sided free-kick from Victor Camarasa.

Brighton looked toothless after Dale Stephens was sent off for a serious foul play after he tore into Greg Cunningham.
