This weekend we travel down to the south coast for a visit to Brighton and Hove Albion
After the success’ on Sunday and Tuesday evening we now face Chris Hughton’s Brighton at the Amex Stadium.
Team selection will be interesting for this game, will Slaviša start with the same eleven as against Burnley, assuming that Tom’s fit enough? Slaviša hinted that he’d change the team to reflect the opposition so perhaps Anguissa will replace KMac, as Brighton isn’t as ‘physical’ a side? and perhaps Ryan will get the nod over Luciano Vietto even though he had a good game on Sunday?
For Brighton its their second season in the Premiership and it wasn’t too long ago that we gave them a good game(s) in the Championship so we might be able to use this game as a measure of how far we have progressed?
Games of interest
Saturday 1st September
Brighton v Fulham
Crystal Palace v Southampton
Everton v Huddersfield
West Ham v Wolves
Sunday 2nd September
Cardiff v Arsenal
After beating teams above us in the last two games, we’ve now got ourselves into 4th place
Next we’ve a mid-week home game against Sheffield Utd who, until recently have spent most of the season in the top six. We’ve now won 10 games of the last 13 so while this could be another tricky game for Slaviša and the lads, what odds would you get on Mitrović and Sess scoring again?
other mid-week games of interest include…
TUESDAY 6TH MARCH
Birmingham City v Middlesborough
Cardiff v Barnsley
Preston NE v Bristol City
QPR v Derby
Sunderland v Aston Villa
WEDNESDAY 7TH MARCH
Leeds v Wolves
This weekend top of the table Wolves visit Craven Cottage
This game will be a tough test for Slaviša and the lads however if we play like we did the last home game against Aston Villa I believe that Fulham will have enough to beat Wolves although I’d take a point for a draw if offered.
If you can’t make it to the game you’ll be able to watch it on Sky TV (17:30 kick-off)
other Championship games of interest this weekend include…
