PREDICTION
Back-to-back Premier League defeats for Brighton has just made things a little nervy on the South Coast as their status in the top flight next season is not quite secure. That said, their opponents Huddersfield are in an even more precarious position going into another must win clash this weekend.

13th play host to 16th and both Chris Hughton and David Wagner will be identifying this game as one in which they can pick up maximum points and extend the gap between themselves and the bottom three.

Brighton have saved their best performances for The AMEX this season and they will be confident of exacting revenge for the defeat that Huddersfield dealt them earlier in the campaign. Huddersfield have not won any of their last four as they struggle for goals when it really matters.

This is the worst time of the season for the goals to dry up and with Brighton’s Glenn Murray looking to add to his impressive tally, you get the feeling that this will be a home win that will push the Seagulls one step closer to survival.

MEMORABLE MEETING
These two promoted sides squared off in the EFL Championship last season with both sides winning their respective home fixture. September 2016 saw Brighton play host to Huddersfield and it was an Anthony Knockeart goal 10 minutes from time which gave Chris Hughton’s men all three points as the Seagulls set the early season pace in England’s second tier.
