PRE-MATCH BRIEF: BURNLEY

15 December 2017

Linton Rogers
The pre-match brief for Albion v Burnley.

Brighton & Hove Albion welcome Burnley to the Amex on Saturday afternoon, kick-off 3pm.

The Seagulls head into back-to-back home fixtures against the Clarets and Watford over the next two weekends, and Chris Hughton’s team currently occupy 13th position in the league table.

Sean Dyche’s team arrive on the south coast in sixth place, after consecutive 1-0 victories that momentarily moved them into the Champions League places before Wednesday night’s fixtures.

Albion are unbeaten in their previous three games against Burnley at the Amex, winning twice before a 2-2 draw in 2016 - when Michael Keane equalised in the dying stages.
