Brighton are now safe from relegation following Cardiff City’s loss to Crystal Palace and that does change the dynamics of the game against us on Sunday.
The seagulls will now approach the game in a far more relaxed mood without any desperation but that does not mean they will roll over and just hand us the win.
I have to be honest and say straight up that I know little of Brighton and Hove Albion and their players, I know of some of them of course but on the whole not very much.
What I do when I research an opponent is I make sure I go to their locally based media and online blogs and that is what I have done this time round in my search for the most likely team line up.
I ignored all the usual generic websites making line up predictions, I suspect they get their predicted line ups from the same sources without admitting it and found myself on the Brighton and Hove Independent website and this is their predicted line up to face us tomorrow.
Now, my experience of watching Brighton this season has generally been when they have played against the top six sides and what I found was that they are generally very organised and based on their early season performances they should not be in the position they found themselves in recent weeks.
I do expect us to win but Brighton will be tough opponents and as we have shown over the last couple of weeks nothing can be taken for granted.
