Watch the atmosphere build up ahead of today's big match.

Brighton & Hove Albion fans can watch coverage of today’s pre-match build-up live on the club’s official YouTube channel.
The build-up begins at 4.50pm and includes an interview with Albion director Martin Perry, followed by the club's poet in residence John Baine reading his iconic poem Goldstone Ghosts.

Next up will be an interview with Stuart Storer, who netted the last, crucial goal at the Goldstone, to secure a vital 1-0 win over Doncaster Rovers in April 1997 - before a special big screen video commemorating the 20th anniversary.

That is followed by operatic soprano Donna-Marie Hughes singing Abide With Me in tribute to those Albion players and fans who've passed in the previous year - including former skipper Paul McCarthy and supporter Paul Whelch.

Then Albion's two greatest-ever goalscorers Peter Ward and Bobby Zamora will be pitch side for an interview with Seagulls TV host Richard Reynolds, who'll then introduce a re-run of the end-of-season montage originally aired at Monday's end-of-season awards night.

That will lead into a live rendition of Sussex by the Sea, by Donna-Marie, to welcome both teams onto the pitch before kick-off.

Live coverage of the match will be shown on Sky Sports 1 from 5.15pm.
