CLEAN BILL OF HEALTH FOR WOLVES TRIP

18 April 2019

Paul Hazlewood
Brighton & Hove Albion travel to face Wolves on Saturday afternoon.

Brighton & Hove Albion head to Molineux on Saturday for their third game in a week to take on Wolves in the Premier League, kick-off 3pm. 

The Seagulls will be looking to get back to winning ways this weekend following back-to-back home defeats against AFC Bournemouth and Cardiff City respectively.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s men have also suffered defeats in their last two contests – a 3-2 loss to Watford at Wembley Stadium in the Emirates FA Cup semi-final and a 3-1 reverse to Southampton last time out in the league.

TEAM NEWS

Albion will still be without Anthony Knockaert, who serves the second game of his three-match suspension following his red card against AFC Bournemouth at the Amex Stadium last weekend - the Seagulls have an otherwise fully fit squad for the trip to the Midlands. 

Wolves also have no injury concerns ahead of Saturday's game.

FORM

The Seagulls will be looking to arrest a run of five consecutive defeats, following the midweek reverse to Cardiff City on the south coast.

Wolves have won two of their last six matches in all competitions – both victories came against Manchester United at Molineux, the first in the Emirates FA Cup last month and the latter at the start of this month, with Diogo Jota finding the net on both occasions.

LAST TIME WE MET 

The Seagulls ran out 1-0 winners the last time the two sides met at the Amex Stadium back in October - a close-range finish from Glenn Murray after the break was the difference between the two sides, as the forward netted his 100th goal for the club.

Murray became the club’s second all-time leading scorer and only the second player to score 100 goals for the Seagulls in the process.

It was the team’s third consecutive victory by the same scoreline for the month in the top flight – the first time the feat had been achieved since 1981, following on from a home victory over West Ham United at the start of October and a win away to Newcastle United at St James’s Park the weekend before.

PLAYER TO WATCH: RAUL JIMENEZ 

The 27-year-old has notched 16 times in 35 times in all competitions so far this term having arrived initially on loan from Benfica last July following the club’s promotion back to the top flight.

At the start of this month the Mexican striker signed a four-year deal with the club and became their record signing in the process in a £30million move.

The powerful and mobile forward has found the net 12 times in the Premier League and was last on the scoresheet in the aforementioned defeat to Watford at Wembley Stadium.

Gaetan Bong in action against Wolves.
  • Albion draw 0-0 with Wolves
  • Davy Propper goes off injured in the first half
  • Maty Ryan makes a couple of fine saves in the second half
  • The Seagulls are next in action away at Tottenham on Tuesday

Brighton & Hove Albion boosted their Premier League survival hopes with a goalless draw against Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux.

Chris Hughton demanded an improved display from his players earlier in the week, and he got exactly that, after a resolute display against the high-flying West Midlands side.

The Seagulls boss made two changes to the side that lost 2-0 to Cardiff City on Tuesday night, as Gaetan Bong and Jose Izquierdo replaced Bernardo and Alireza Jahanbakhsh respectively.

Wolves worked their first opening when Raul Jimenez delivered an inswinging cross towards Matt Doherty, who headed wide at the far post.

Lewis Dunk was then called into action to slide Doherty’s cross away from the near post, in what was a lively start for the hosts.

Albion were dealt an early blow with just ten minutes played, after Davy Propper was forced off injured and was replaced by Beram Kayal.

The hosts pressed forward again, this time through Doherty, who took advantage of some indecision in the Albion defence and teed up an angled shot, which went wide of Maty Ryan’s near post.

Pascal Gross also played his role at the back moments later, after tracking back brilliantly to make a fine sliding challenge to prevent Diogo Jota from taking a close-range shot.

The hosts came within inches of breaking the deadlock just past the half-hour mark, after Jota took advantage of space on the edge of the box and saw his strike go inches past the far post.

The Portuguese came even closer to scoring in first-half stoppage time, as Jimenez’s ball over the top of Albion’s defence fell into his path, but his shot clipped the top of the crossbar.

Albion looked to make inroads into the Wolves defence themselves soon after the re-start, when Gross drifted an enticing corner towards Dunk, but the centre-back couldn’t quite get hold of the ball, allowing Wolves to clear.

The hosts still carried a threat though, and Duffy needed to be alert to clear away Doherty’s header at the right-hand post.

Following a spell of Albion possession, Kayal took advantage of some space in a central position and fizzed a right-footed strike just inches over the target.

Hughton’s men continued their positive start to the second half, as Duffy rose highest to meet Bruno’s searching ball into the box, but the Irishman couldn’t direct his header on target.

Joao Moutinho’s shot down the other end deflected wide for a corner, and the subsequent set-piece caused mayhem in the Albion defence, before a combination of Kayal and Ryan cleared the ball behind.

Jimenez had another chance to get Wolves the breakthrough, but his strike on the angle sailed over the crossbar.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side came even closer to scoring moments later, after Jota’s effort came off the post, and the rebound fell to Leander Dendoncker for effectively his first touch of the game, but he was superbly denied by Ryan.

Albion’s defence continued to withstand some concerted pressure from the hosts, and they had Ryan to thank for another fine save to keep out Dendoncker’s close-range header.

Despite all of the hosts’ pressure, the Seagulls held on to claim a hard-earned point and move three points clear of Cardiff City, who still occupy the final relegation place.

ALBION: Ryan; Bruno (Bernardo 70), Duffy, Dunk, Bong; March, Stephens, Propper (Kayal 10), Izquierdo; Gross; Murray.

SUBS NOT USED: Button (GK), Burn, Locadia, Jahanbakhsh, Andone.
