Aston Villa drew 1-1 at Brighton and Hove Albion on Friday night.
Aston Villa's Nathan Baker celebrates scoring
Aston Villa continue to impress under new boss Steve Bruce as they picked up a 1-1 draw away at high-flying Brighton and Hove Albion on Friday evening.
Villa went into the game having won three and drawn two of their five games under Bruce, and when Nathan Baker headed them in front at Brighton, it looked like it could be four victories in six.
However, Brighton did hit back before half time as Glenn Murray sent a superb long-range strike fizzing past Pierluigi Gollini and into the bottom corner of the net to rescue a point for the Seagulls.
Either side could have won the game in the second half as Murray and Jonathan Kodjia both had headed opportunities, but ended in a draw to extend Bruce's unbeaten run as Villa boss to six games.

Many Villa players impressed, but Sky Sports handed winger Albert Adomah the man of the match award – and Villa fans raved about the Ghanaian's performance after the full time whistle.
The former Middlesbrough man, 28, arrived at Villa on deadline day back in August, but has blown hot and cold at times before producing a scintillating display on Friday evening.

The pacey wide man caused no end of problems for the Brighton defence, and fans took to Twitter to praise his performance, suggesting that he's better than Adama Traore, who went in the opposite direction to Middlesbrough.
Fans thought that Adomah was brilliant against Brighton, even comparing him to former Villa winger Ashley Young, and added that midfielder Mile Jedinak was possibly just as impressive as Adomah on Friday night.
Here are some of the reactions from Aston Villa fans after the 1-1 draw with Brighton and Hove Albion...

#AVFC Jedinak and Adomah are both beginning to really find their feet at Villa - we now need McCormack to get back to his scoring ways asap.— bc (@golf_avfc) November 19, 2016
Impressed with #avfc last night. We showed in last 30 mins that we shouldn't be afraid of any team in this league. Adomah + JG excellent.— Howard Hodgson (@HodgsonHoward) November 19, 2016
Great performance by #avfc tonight really deserved the 3 points. Adomah was superb throughout— Keven Brooks (@kjbtheposh) November 18, 2016
Would have taken a point before the game but easily could have won. Bruce has made a huge difference. Adomah awesome. #AVFC— e-Aston Villa (@e_AstonVilla) November 18, 2016
Really encouraging 2nd half. We moved forward instead of dropped back! Refreshing! Adomah was top drawer & Jedinak was just colossal. #avfc— James Eggison (@jameseggison) November 18, 2016
What a performance from Adomah. That was Young in his pomp: pace, power and dangerous crosses aplenty #avfc— Dean Caffrey (@DeanCaffrey96) November 18, 2016
Adomah MOM. Adama who? Grealish brilliant through middle. Jedi great. CBs very good. Westy decent. Hutton weak link. Great performance #avfc— Christer (@Chrsmo) November 18, 2016
Adomah is absolutely brilliant. Fast, tricky, and never stops running. #avfc— Jon Stokes (@JonSnowStokes) November 18, 2016
