Form: This is a genuine top of the table clash, with only goal difference separating the two sides at the head of the Championship.
Result: The outright odds posted by Sky Bet make little appeal, with value hard to determine. Make no mistake, any kind of positive result for Chris Hughton's men will be a tremendous achievement but at the same time, they do have a realistic chance of creating an upset. The odds of 13/8 for Brighton to win in the 'Draw No Bet' category makes a lot of punting sense, while 12/1 for a two goal margin of victory for the Seagulls is definitely overpriced and may reward a small punt.
Goalscorer tips:Tomer Hemed (7/1) is the most realistic Brighton option.
