Brighton will aim to secure back to back victories after beating West Brom 3-1 at The Amex.

Brighton pushed for a victor in the final 15 minutes of the second half, but they were unable carve out another chance as Bournemouth claimed their first win of the season.

"This is the first meeting between these two coastal clubs since April 2015, but there won't be a long wait until the next match as they face each other again in the EFL Cup on Tuesday". This is a side that has been playing really well in the Championship for the past few seasons and they will hope that this squad is good enough this season with the big step up.

"We do have to recognise that we've just played Manchester City and Arsenal and we've said previously that you have to put those games to the back of your minds".

"There's no doubt though that this Friday is, by a considerable margin, the more important of the two". This is an important game since both of these teams look like they will be fighting for relegation come the end of the season.
