Albion have some big games coming up.
Brighton & Hove Albion are gearing up for the business end of the season as they head into the month of April with six games in the space of 21 days.
Chris Hughton’s men begin the month with arguably their biggest match of the season to date against Burnley, in a top-two clash at the Amex, to be shown live in front of the Sky Sports cameras.
Albion will move to within a point of the Clarets with a victory on Saturday as the race for automatic promotion gathers momentum.
Three days later, the Seagulls head to St Andrew's for an evening match against Birmingham City, who still have play-off aspirations of their own. Goals from Solly March and Bobby Zamora edged out the Blues in a 2-1 win at the Amex back in November.

Brighton are back on the TV the following Monday (11th April) for a match against Nottingham Forest at the City Ground, aiming to complete the double over the East Midlands side. A 1-0 opening-day victory in the reverse fixture set Albion off to a blistering start to the season - as the team embarked on a 21-game unbeaten league run.
Following Forest are two games against west London opposition at the Amex, with Fulham and Queens Park Rangers on 15th and 19th April respectively.
Sam Baldock and Tomer Hemed were on target in a 2-1 victory at Craven Cottage back in August, to ensure Albion made it two wins from two games at the start of the season.
QPR and Albion played out a thoroughly entertaining game at Loftus Road back in December, when strikes from Rajiv van La Parra and Dale Stephens put the Seagulls 2-0 in front, before Charlie Austin’s brace earned Rangers a share of the spoils.
The month’s action ends at The Valley on 23rd April, as Albion embark on their penultimate away trip of the season to take on a Charlton Athletic side looking for points to secure their Championship status for another season.
