Vital Reading Season Preview – Brighton
Club – Brighton and Hove Albion
Founded – 1901
Nickname – The Seagulls
Ground – Falmer Stadium (Capacity: 22,374)
Manager – Gus Poyet
When we face each other? – Mon 26th December (H) Tues 10th April (A)
Last Season Finish – 1st – League One (Promoted)
Season Preview – Brighton have spent the majority of the past few seasons in League One following their relegation from the Championship in 2005.
Manager Gus Poyet was appointed Seagulls manager in November 2009 but despite a slow start, they soon found their feet and got promoted as Champions in the 2010/11 season.
Poyet encourages a very good brand of football and has made a very shrewd signing in Craig Mackail Smith. However, since losing Elliot Bennett to Norwich, they may lack some creativity this season to get them goals.
My Prediction – 16th
