Brighton (5-7-9) have just one win in their last 10 Premier League contests - 1-0 over Watford on December 23. From an Ibe corner, Cook rises highest and loops a brilliant header in off the bar at the far post.
Bournemouth twice came from behind to draw 2-2 with Brighton & Hove Albion in a South Coast Derby at the Amex Stadium yesterday, the first English Premier League game of the year.
With the deftest of touches toward goal, Callum Wilson was the man who finally got a decisive touch on the ball.
Wilson poked in from close range after a goalmouth scramble with 11 minutes remaining, moving the Cherries within a place and two points of 12th-placed Brighton.
However, a goalless draw looked inevitable from an early stage of proceedings, with the result leaving Newcastle a point clear of the drop zone in 16th position.
Hughton, for his part, believed his side deserved all three points. Shane Duffy started the move with a sweeping, cross-field pass from inside his own half before an exchange of passes between Suttner and Gross that eventually released Izquierdo to cross towards Anthony Knockaert who finished well from a tight angle. "With the second goal, there seemed to be about 10 deflections before it went in".
33' - GOAL! Brighton 1-1 Bournemouth (S. Cook).

A beautifully worked goal for Brighton saw them pull ahead again just after the interval, with Gross once again putting Izquierdo through. and he squared it to for Murray to finish.
68' - CHANCE! Brighton break from a Bournemouth corner through Izquierdo, who skips past two players then runs nearly the length of the pitch but then goes alone and overuns it, allowing Begovic to smother his shot.
Bournemouth are now unbeaten in nine games against Brighton, and have never lost in three trips to the Amex Stadium.
