SOUTHAMPTON, England, Sept 17 (Reuters) - SOUTHAMPTON 2 BRIGHTON & HOVE ALBION 2

Brighton & Hove Albion’s Glenn Murray converted a 90th-minute penalty to snatch a 2-2 draw at south-coast rivals Southampton after they fought back from two goals down in a pulsating Premier League clash on Monday.

Denmark midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg fired the Saints into a 35th-minute lead with a scorcher from 30 metres into the bottom right-hand corner of the net and Danny Ings netted a penalty in the 65th after being fouled by left back Gaetan Bong.

Shane Duffy gave Brighton hope with a 67th-minute header after a cross from the right and Murray completed the comeback from the spot after he was bundled over by James Ward-Prowse.

There was still time for late drama as Southampton came close to snatching a winner but visiting goalkeeper Matt Ryan kept out a fierce Ryan Bertrand free kick. (Writing by Zoran Milosavljevic; Editing by Ken Ferris)
