2015/16 SEASON REVIEW: JANUARY

6 June 2016

A win over Blackburn ended Albion's downturn in form.


Brighton & Hove Albion continued their blip going into 2016 with a 1-0 defeat against Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Amex on New Year’s Day.
 
Connor Goldson’s own goal secured the three points for Kenny Jackett’s side, as Albion's winless run extended to six games.

One goal decided the game eight days later in an FA Cup third round defeat at Hull City. Lewis Dunk’s foul on Harry Maguire handed the Tigers a penalty, which Robert Snodgrass converted to send the Yorkshiremen into round four.



Brighton’s fourth straight loss was against Rotherham in a 2-0 defeat away at the Aesseal New York Stadium on 12th January. January signing Anthony Knockaert made his debut, while Lewis Dunk and Liam Ridgewell were the only two survivors from the FA Cup game at the weekend to make the starting line-up.

After eight games without a win, Albion briefly fell out of the top six ahead of their trip to Ewood Park to face Blackburn Rovers four days later.
 
Bobby Zamora’s third-minute strike secured all three points, as the Seagulls equalled their points tally of 47 from the previous season.
