The Race for Promotion: Newcastle, Brighton and Huddersfield’s Fixtures Compared

Brighton & Hove Albion (2nd – 77pts)


Brighton’s toughest test in their remaining 9 games could arrive in Saturday’s late kick off at Elland Road, where they face the revitalised Leeds United. Formidable at home, Brighton are still to face several struggling sides at The Amex such as Blackburn, Wigan & Bristol City, however it could be argued that such teams pose a threat, given they are fighting for their survival. The final few weeks of the season include a potentially dangerous trip to Norwich, who should have a new manager in charge by then, as well as a trip to Aston Villa on the final day of the season. You’d expect Brighton to drop very few points in their winnable home games to come. How they fair in the challenges to come away from home, could however make or break their promotion push.
