Brighton & Hove Albion defender Shane Duffy highlighted the team’s belief in beating any opposition at the Amex Stadium, but insists they are well aware of the threat posed by Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The Seagulls will look to record a third successive Premier League victory when Nuno Espirito Santo’s side visit the south coast this afternoon, and Duffy assessed this weekend’s ninth-placed opponents.

He said, ”They look good. We know what they’re about. They've got good, individual players and we've got to stop their threats.

“We're at home and we've got to play our game, but we’ve also got to be aware of them. The front three are very good and the two in midfield are very strong.

"It's clicking for them at the moment. They're flying. They obviously had a poor result last week but you've got to realise it's not every week you can win in this league.

“If we play our game the way we usually do at home and get another clean sheet, then hopefully we can stop them. On our day we can beat anyone at the Amex.”

Fellow Republic of Ireland defender Matt Doherty is likely to feature for Wolves this afternoon, and Duffy commented on his compatriots eye-catching form for the West Midlands club this season.

"He came through Ireland with me the whole way. We’re quite close in the Ireland team. I hang around with him there. He's a great lad and I'm delighted to see him doing so well.

"With the spending power they have, they could have brought another right-back in and not given him the chance, but he’s shown why they decided to stick with him.

“He deserves everything he’s getting at the moment. He has probably been one of the best right-backs in the league this season and we'll have to keep him quiet.”

This afternoon’s game with Wolves is AITC'S 'Community Day' and supporters are being encouraged to bring £1 to support the club’s official charity.
