Brighton's Murray misses penalty in draw with Burnley | Match Report.

By BBC Sport

Glenn Murray missed a penalty as Brighton's winless run stretched to seven matches with a goalless draw against Burnley, but defender Lewis Dunk is "confident" his side will not rue the dropped points.

"We got promoted for a reason," said Dunk, "and we're going to stay here for that same reason."

Albion dominated the first half at the Amex, with Anthony Knockaert striking the post, before Murray headed straight into the gloves of Nick Pope from close range.

Murray should have made his side's territory count when he won a penalty against James Tarkowski, but his wild effort flew over the crossbar.

Fifth-placed Burnley had the better of a second half in which Tarkowski saw a header cleared off the line by Dale Stephens, before a superb double save from Mat Ryan denied Scott Arfield from close range.

In the first top-flight meeting between the sides, Chris Wood spurned the best chance for the visitors, when his attempted chip was blocked by Ryan.

The result sees the south-coast club stay 13th.
