It’s a crucial week for Brighton and Hove Albion as they host fellow relegation candidates Huddersfield Town at Amex Stadium on Saturday.
Following a run of four games without a defeat, the Seagulls have lost their last two games in the league. On Saturday, Brighton suffered a 2-0 home defeat to Leicester City.
The Seagulls currently sit in the 13th spot with 34 points and have a six-point advantage on the bottom three. However, with only seven games left to play this season, Brighton are yet to play the likes of Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool, Tottenham and Burnley.
The difficult run-in means that Brighton must win the game on Saturday if they want to avoid a nervous end to the season.
The Terriers are not doing much better themselves, and they have picked up just one point from their last four games. Following a 1-0 defeat at Newcastle United on Saturday, Huddersfield find themselves in the 16th spot with 31 points. With only three points separating them from the bottom three, they are in deeper trouble than their opponents. However, we don’t see them picking any point from this game as they have been terrible on road this season.
Earlier this season, Huddersfield claimed a 3-1 win over their opponents in the reverse fixture.
