There’s plenty to play for tonight as Brighton will look to regain top spot in the Championship as the Seagulls face Wolves at Molineux (KO 19:45)
Its a vital Friday night clash from the Championship and it looks a cracker to kick start the weekend football fixtures.
Brighton are currently in prime position in pole position in the Championship, tow points in front of Newcastle, and three points tonight would see the Seagulls soar to top of the table with a decent lead.
Chris Hughton’s side already look more or less guaranteed an automatic promotion place, with a healthy nine point lead over third placed Huddersfield Town but they will take nothing for granted as they visit a resurgent Wolves side.
Its unlikely that Brighton will pick up maximum points between now and the end of the season, and its a game in which they could easily drop points with Wolves finding their feet.
Wolves have had a rather lack luster season, currently sitting midtable in the Championship, but there are signs of green shoots of recovery for Paul Lambert’s side.
Furthermore, Wolves form has largely improved in the grand scheme of things of late, as despite having a dismal run of of results, their recent form (16 points out of last 18) and their recent home form in particular is impressive.
Brighton will still ultimately be considered favourites, as their form, performances and quality over the majority of the season has been significantly better than that of Wolves – proven by their current high flying league position, where they are likely to be promoted to the Premier League next season.
However, complacency could prove fatal to the Southern side should they underestimate the threat that the Midland club pose.
One thing on the Seagulls side is their quality in numbers, with the likes of Glenn Murray, Tomer Hemed, Anthony Knockaert and Sam Baldock all having over 10 goals in the league this season.
Wolves will do well to keep Brighton out with such fire power in their ranks, and it should prove to be a enjoyable match between two sides in good form.
Wolves are sure to put up a decent fight of it at home but the 11/10 on the Brighton away win simply looks too big to ignore, and thats our selection for tonight.
