Brighton & Hove Albion’s under-23s welcome Wolverhampton Wanderers to the Checkatrade.com Stadium this evening, kick-off 7pm, as they look to record a hat-trick of victories in the Premier League 2 Division 2.

The Seagulls came back from two goals down to beat Stoke City 3-2 at the Bet365 Stadium last time out, with Max Sanders, Aaron Connolly and Jayson Molumby hitting the back of the net in the second half.

Prior to their comeback victory in Staffordshire, Albion sealed a narrow 1-0 win over Southampton on the road, as Connolly came off the bench to score the winning goal against the Saints.

Simon Rusk’s team currently occupy sixth position in the league table, and sit just three points behind Fulham who find themselves in the final play-off spot.

Wolves put an end to a three-game losing streak with a 4-2 home victory over Norwich City in their previous fixture, and the West Midlands club can move level on points with the Seagulls with a win in Sussex tonight.

Rusk’s side have yet to lose at the Checkatrade.com Stadium this season, as they beat Fulham 4-2 and drew 0-0 against Newcastle United.

Albion supporters can follow a live text blog from tonight’s game on the Match Centre, with a match report being published after the game.

Please note that tickets for tonight’s game cannot be booked in advance, and can only be purchased at the turnstiles.

Albion season-ticket holders can gain free access to the game by showing their season cards at the turnstiles.

Otherwise, prices are set at £5 for adults and £2 for over-65s and under-16s.
