Steve Sidwell is about to score his last-gasp point-saver at home to Burnley in 2002

Albion have gone three games without scoring at home to Burnley – after netting twice in as many minutes.
Steve Sidwell struck on 88 and 89 minutes to salvage the Seagulls’ last home point against their visitors from East Lancs back in December 2002.
The midfielder’s late rescue mission secured a 2-2 draw in a Championship game at Withdean after Glen Little and Ian Thomas-Moore put Burnley two goals up.
Since then, Burnley have recorded two 1-0 wins and a 0-0 draw on three visits to Sussex.
Last season’s match was a stormy affair which many fans at The Amex today will still vividly remember.
Romain Vincelot and Ashley Barnes were sent off in the first 12 minutes but Burnley struggled to break down a nine-man home side astutely set up by boss Gus Poyet.
Kieran Trippier got the winner*with a shot from the edge of the box.
Even then, Craig Mackail-Smith almost rescued a heroic point for the depleted hosts in added time.
Albion won 3-1 at Turf Moor this season but have gone four games without a win at home to Burnley.
Zeke Rowe’s lone goal gave them their most recent home success, back in April 1996.
