Brighton & Hove Albion had a prosperous January where new manager Chris Hughton oversaw three wins in his first month in charge while running Premier League Arsenal close in the FA Cup as well.
After exiting the cup to the Gunners, Albion’s sole focus is now on the league and the shortest month of the year still packs in plenty of fixtures, with six games in 21 days.
Hughton’s men head into February looking to bounce back from the disappointing 1-0 reverse at Blackpool at the end of January, starting with a home fixture against Dougie Freedman's Nottingham Forest on the 7th, kick-off 3pm.
