With that hurdle achieved, it is time for some respite from the league as the Seagulls travel to Brentford in the FA Cup on Saturday.
Sky Bet, the official bookmaking partners of the Football League, have installed the Bees as their even money favourites. Brighton are 12/5 and the draw is sandwiched in-between at 23/10. None of these outright prices offer any significant value and so we will look elsewhere.

Goals are beginning to flow from the Albion and it is worthwhile persevering with the 3-2 Brighton correct score at 40/1. Add Brighton to win by two goals at 11/1 into the mix and you have the potential of high returns for a very small stake.
Away from the Albion, the best FA Cup bet of the weekend is to back Middlesbrough (10/11) to beat Barnsley.
