Championship: Sami Hyypia satisfied with Brighton's display against Crawley
Brighton boss Sami Hyypia was satisfied with his side's display after Kazenga Lualua's stunning free-kick salvaged a 1-1 draw against Sky Bet League One side Crawley.
Brighton, playing in their fourth pre-season friendly, went behind early on after Crawley's former Barclays Premier League striker Collins John headed home a corner.
There was some good news for the away fans in the second half though as Albion welcomed back midfielder Andrew Crofts, who has endured a six-month lay-off after rupturing his cruciate ligament.
Within seconds of Croft's arrival on the pitch, Brighton were level thanks to Lualua's 25-yard free-kick into the bottom right-hand corner.
Hyypia told the club's official website: "The attitude of the players has been very good and it hasn't been a surprise for me.
"They are not going to completely understand everything that goes on the pitch in the space of a couple of weeks, but we are in a good way and we still have time until the season starts."
