Brighton & Hove Albion’s October curse continues for another year, as once again the Seagulls were unable to find a victory.
Albion’s last win in the month was back in 2010, away at Peterborough, and despite mustering three 1-1 draws, Sami Hyypia’s men were unable to put an end to their winless run.
So attention now turns to November where, for the first time since August, the Seagulls will enjoy more home fixtures than away ones. That being said, Albion start the month with a south-coast derby against in-form Bournemouth at the Goldsands Stadium, live on Sky Sports.
The fixture was originally scheduled for Halloween but due to both clubs' involvement in the Capital One Cup, the match will now take place on Saturday 1st November, kick-off 5.15pm.

Hyypia’s men will then complete a busy few weeks of fixtures with back-to-back home games, starting with Wigan Athletic on Tuesday 4th November before Blackburn Rovers visit on the Saturday (8th November).
The third international break of the season will provide some respite for Hyypia and his men before league action resumes on 22nd October , as the Seagulls face the first of two games against teams in last year’s Premier League.
Albion will undertake their first trip to Carrow Road for five years to face high-flying Norwich City before rounding off the month at home to struggling Fulham in the first meeting between the two clubs in 18 years.
