Brighton travel to West Brom seeking to widen the gap between them and the Premier League’s bottom three

West Brom v Brighton

Brighton’s recent resurgence that saw them pull away from the relegation zone has hit the buffers in the past few weeks, as Graham Potter takes his troops to West Brom on Saturday seeking a first win in three Premier League fixtures.

The Seagulls lost 2-1 to Crystal Palace on Monday night to trigger slight nerves that their survival scrap is not complete just yet.

Fulham sit four points off 16th-placed Brighton, while West Brom are cut further back and are 13 points away from survival. 

However, back-to-back draws have at least got Sam Allardyce’s squad dreaming of an unlikely fightback from the drop.

These sides drew 1-1 when they met back in October. A repeat result probably isn’t enough for the Baggies as their fixtures begin to dry up.

Our prediction: West Brom v Brighton

West Brom are in desperate need of a victory. Despite earning draws in their last two games, it’s three points that are required here.

But Brighton are unlikely to surrender this game. Potter has a trusted defence that should be able to handle the middling attacking threat that West Brom possess.

Indeed, the visitors should have little problem at the back and this tie will be decided on how their attack shapes up against Allardyce’s defence. A draw seems inevitable.

Our prediction: West Brom 0-0 Brighton (15/2 at bet365)
