Brighton and Hove Albion 1 Wolverhampton Wanderers 1
Colin Cameron came to Wolverhampton Wanderers' rescue with the late equaliser that ruined fellow Scotsman Mark McGhee's night.
Almost seven years to the day after his Bonfire Night sacking by Wolves, McGhee was within eight minutes of a first win over his former club.
But Cameron came off the bench to make Glenn Hoddle happy by becoming the first Wolves midfielder to score a league goal this season. And with fellow second- half substitute Ki-Hyeon Seol turning in an exciting cameo over the final half-hour, the visitors were ultimately worth their point.
It still leaves Hoddle's men 16 points shy of an automatic promotion place, having taken just three now out of a possible 18 at this fundamental stage of the season. But, on an evening when Stefan Postma's first-half error looked to have sent his team to defeat, simply to avoid the embarrassment of losing to McGhee and his unsung Seagulls in their sorry stadium was something to cling to.
It did not perhaps quite have the dramatic impact of Thomas Sorensen's late withdrawal for Aston Villa in Manchester, but Postma's inclusion was only due to a late goalkeeping change.
A well-kept secret injury to Michael Oakes meant that the on-loan Dutchman was brought in for his Wolves league debut and, with youngster Wayne Henderson making his final appearance of a three-month loan for Brighton, that led to the unusual sight of Villa goalkeepers at either end of the pitch.
Wolves started brightly enough, Vio Ganea looking lively, while captain Mark Kennedy looked keen to correct that lack of goals from midfield with his obvious willingness to have a go from range.
But the height of their first-half menace came when the frustrated Leon Clarke squared up to on- loan Manchester United defender Paul Mc Shane in an unsavoury incident that earned both men a booking.
And it was Brighton who began to get on top as the half wore on.
Frenchman Sebastien Carole, denied by Postma earlier, was the first to inject a sense of real panic into the Wolves defence.
The summer signing from Monaco somehow squirmed past Lee Naylor to get to the byline but Postma was equal to it and Gary Hart's follow-up effort was blocked.
Postma then reacted sharply to punch the ball clear off Leon Knight's head before blocking a venomous volley from Colin Kazim-Richards.
But Postma was the man to blame when Brighton's pressure finally told with the opener from their other Frenchman, Alex Frutos, six minutes before half-time.
Frutos turned neatly enough and his shot should not have been strong enough to trouble Postma at his near post, but it went tamely through the Dutchman.
Wolves had managed just one shot on target in a poor first 45 minutes, Henderson saving well from Darren Anderton.
In fact, had it not been for another very good Postma block when Dean Hammond got clean through early in the second half, the game would have been over.
But the introduction of Seol proved the turning point. The Korean fired just wide with a fierce left-foot shot after cutting in from the right and it seemed to spark Wolves into life.
Cameron had a low shot well saved and then came the equaliser, set up by Clarke's strong run down the left.
Ganea's far-post shot was kept out by a combination of Henderson and the woodwork, but Cameron hammered in the rebound.
