STOKE, England — Charlie Adam had a late penalty saved as relegation-threatened Stoke drew 1-1 with Brighton in the Premier League on Saturday.

With Jese appearing annoyed not to be taking the penalty, Adam saw his effort from 12 yards (meters) kept out by Brighton goalkeeper Mat Ryan.

Xherdan Shaqiri’s strike in the 68th minute canceled out Jose Izquierdo’s 32nd-minute goal for Brighton.

After Adam’s fluffed penalty, Mame Diouf had another chance to grab all three points for Stoke with a stoppage-time header but it was cleared off the line by Anthony Knockaert.

Stoke remained in the relegation zone, while Brighton is three points better off.
