PREVIEW: ALBION V WOLVES

26 October 2018

Linton Rogers
Albion host Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Amex Stadium on Saturday.

Brighton & Hove Albion will look to record a third successive victory in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon, when Wolverhampton Wanderers visit the Amex Stadium, kick-off 3pm.

The Seagulls welcome Nuno Espirito Santo’s team to the south coast after taking maximum points from games against West Ham United and Newcastle United either side of the international break.

Albion have shown positive form on home soil, having taken seven points from a possible 12, but this weekend’s opponents arrive at the Amex with the same number of points taken on the road.

Wolves occupy ninth position in the Premier League after eight matches, while the Seagulls sit three places and four points behind ahead of Saturday’s meeting.


TEAM NEWS:

Chris Hughton confirmed both Davy Propper and Pascal Gross will miss the game through injury, while a decision will be made on the availability of Glenn Murray after going through the correct protocol since suffering concussion.

Wolves arrive with a clean bill of health for Saturday’s match, with Santo having a fully-fit squad to select from.




FORM:

The Seagulls claimed their first Premier League away victory of the season against the Magpies on Saturday afternoon, as Jose Izquierdo’s low drive deflected in off Beram Kayal to seal a 1-0 victory.

It was the second 1-0 win in a row for Albion, following their narrow triumph over West Ham at the Amex, when Glenn Murray dispatched from close range to claim his 99th goal for the club.

Defeats to Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur came in September, but Albion showed character to come back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 against both Southampton and Fulham.

Wolves arrive on the south coast on the back of a 2-0 defeat to Watford at Molineux, after two quick-fire goals from the Hornets gave the West Midlands club a mountain to climb.

Saturday’s opponents had previously gone six Premier League games without defeat — a run which included 1-1 draws against both Manchester United and Manchester City.

Wolves have kept four clean sheets in their four victories this season, as West Ham, Burnley, Southampton and Crystal Palace have all tasted defeat against Santo’s team.

LAST TIME WE MET:

Albion put themselves within touching distance of promotion to the Premier League with a commanding 2-0 victory over Wolves at Molineux in 2017.

Anthony Knockaert broke the deadlock on the stroke of half-time, after latching onto David Stockdale’s long ball forward and finishing into the bottom corner from the edge of the box.

The Frenchman wrapped the points up in the second half when he squeezed the ball underneath the goalkeeper to find the back of the net, which sparked jubilant scenes in the away end.

The win proved crucial, as the Seagulls claimed a 2-1 victory in the following game against Wigan Athletic and secured their place in the top flight for the 2017/18 campaign.

LAST TIME OUT: ALBION

Albion: Ryan; Bruno (Bernardo 68), Duffy, Dunk, Bong; Jahanbakhsh, Stephens, Kayal, Izquierdo (Bissouma 80); March; Murray (Locadia 16).

Subs not used: Ruddy (GK), Hause, Bonatini, Saiss.




PLAYER TO WATCH: Raul Jimenez

The Mexican striker made a big-money move to Wolves from SL Benfica this summer and has contributed towards five of his team’s goals so far this season.

Jimenez found the back of the net on his Wolves debut against Everton on the opening day of the season, before scoring the winning goal in a 1-0 victory over Burnley at Molineux.

The forward has since shown his ability as a provider, laying on three goals for his team-mates in unbeaten matches against Manchester United, Southampton and Crystal Palace.

The 27-year-old has led the line for Wolves in every Premier League match this season and will no doubt provide a physical test for Albion’s central defenders on Saturday afternoon.

Glenn Murray celebrates his 100th goal for the club.
  • Albion beat Wolves 1-0 at the Amex
  • Glenn Murray scores his 100th Albion goal to become the club’s post-war leading goalscorer
  • The Seagulls win three consecutive top-flight games for first time since 1981
  • A record crowd of 30,654 fans in attendance

Glenn Murray’s 100th Brighton & Hove Albion goal helped the side to a crucial 1-0 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Amex Stadium.

A week after literally being down and out following a collision with Federico Fernandez at St James’ Park, the Seagulls frontman etched his name into the club’s history books as the leading post-war goalscorer, moving one ahead of Kit Napier’s tally.
 
Murray’s strike was enough to settle a closely-contested affair, as a record Amex crowd of 30,654 fans were in attendance to see the legendary frontman secure Albion a third consecutive top-flight win for the first time since 1981.
 
The forward has now moved into second place in the all-time goalscoring list, with just Tommy Cook's tally left to beat.
 
The first chance of the game fell to Shane Duffy, who rose highest from Solly March’s set-piece into the box, only to see his resulting header go over the bar.
 
Wolves enjoyed the majority of possession in the opening stages without testing Maty Ryan, and Jose Izquierdo and Beram Kayal had to be alert to block strikes from Matt Doherty and Ruben Neves respectively.
 
The Neves and Doherty combination came into play moments later, but the latter was thwarted by Ryan after the former sliced a through-ball between the Albion defence.
 
Izqueirdo broke forward quickly down the other end and picked out March, whose enticing ball across the box was narrowly missed by the onrushing Alireza Jahanbakhsh.
 
The game gradually began to open up after a cagey start, as Adama Traore tried his luck for the visitors after cutting in off the left flank only to see his resulting shot saved by
Ryan.
 
Doherty wasted a golden opportunity to put Wolves in front when he made a driving run into the box, but shot wide with a left-footed strike.
 
Albion had a brilliant chance of their own to break the deadlock when Duffy ghosted in unmarked at the far post from March’s corner, but agonisingly saw his header go inches wide.
 
But a moment of history followed in the 48th minute as Murray fired in his 100th goal, as Bruno’s cross-shot fell into the path of Murray, who fired home with a brilliant first-time finish at the far post.
 
Matters briefly turned away from the pitch as the late Peter Brackley received a warm round
of applause in the 67th minute from all sections of the ground following his passing nearly a fortnight ago.
 
Izquierdo had a chance to double Albion’s advantage after racing through on goal, but couldn’t get his shot away at the last moment and set up Jahanbakhsh, who scuffed his shot wide.
 
Neves continued to be a constant threat and drilled in a low shot which was saved by Ryan at his near post, before Lewis Dunk headed his free kick over the bar.
 
Despite a spell of Wolves pressure late on, which saw Ryan make an exceptional one-handed save from Ryan Bennett, Albion held on to claim three memorable points on the south coast.
 
ALBION: Ryan; Bruno, Duffy, Dunk, Bong; Jahanbakhsh, Stephens, Kayal, Izquierdo (Knockaert 81); March (Bissouma 71); Murray.
 
SUBS NOT USED: Steele (GK), Balogun, Bernardo, Locadia, Andone.
