Brighton & Hove Albion can make history this weekend after they equalled a club record unbeaten run stretching back more than 80 years with the 0-0 draw at Sheffield Wednesday last night.
Chris Hughton's men made it an astonishing 16 league games without defeat thanks to the draw at Hillsborough, and they now have the opportunity to set a new club record when MK Dons visit the Amex this Saturday, 3pm.
Win or draw this weekend and Albion will beat the record set by their 1930/31 predecessors in Division Three South. That run began with 1-0 win over Swindon Town and ended with a 2-1 defeat at Northampton Town.

Albion chief executive Paul Barber said, “There have already been some amazing moments at the Amex since the stadium opened, and this weekend there is a chance we could witness another historic achievement.
“The team have made a fantastic start to this season’s campaign, and to beat a record that has stood for over 80 years would be a brilliant thing to be a part of – so we’re urging as many fans as possible to come along on Saturday to hopefully be involved in another bit of Amex history!”
Karl Robinson's side make their first visit to the Amex on the back of last night's 1-0 win over Charlton - and in the seven meetings between the two sides, MK Dons edge it in the head-to-head having won four and lost two.
