Brighton held to goalless draw by lowly Norwich

Brighton & Hove Albion and Norwich City played out a 0-0 draw at the AMEX Stadium on Saturday to end six-match losing streaks in the Premier League for both teams.

The hosts' Neal Maupay had the golden opportunity to decide this game when Norwich's Sam Byram handled the ball inside the area, but the French forward blasted over the bar from the penalty spot.

Maupay and Solly March wasted other good chances for Brighton who were close to scoring several times in the second half, but only four of their 31 shots hit the target.

Norwich barely ventured outside their own half and did little to threaten the hosts with Brighton goalkeeper Robert Sánchez not having to make a single save.

They remained rooted to the bottom of the table and seven points adrift of safety. Brighton sit comfortably mid-table in 13th place.
