Our prediction for this Championship match:
Brighton are on a three-match winning run in the Championship and they produced their best performance of the season at the weekend, with the team crushing Norwich City 5-0 in front of home fans. The Seagulls climbed to second place in the standings and, no doubt, they will give 100% to secure automatic promotion to the Premier League. Brighton have been impressive at home this season, but their away record is not poor at all. Key attacker Glenn Murray scored a hat-trick against Norwich City and we predict that the former Crystal Palace man is going to prove a handful for Bristol City defenders in Saturday’s football match. Brighton are after their fourth consecutive clean sheet in the Championship and considering that their next rivals have been having their ups and downs of late, we are tempted to put our money on the away team in this one.
Highlighted Player (Mark Little):
Mark Little is a right back who plays for Bristol City. Little started his youth career at Wolverhampton Wonderers and he made 27 appearances for the first team as well. He made his Wolves debut on 23 August, 2006 in the League Cup clash against Chesterfield. After spending two years on loan at Northampton Town, Chesterfield and Peterborough United, he signed a permanent deal with Peterborough on 25 May, 2010. The defender scored three goals in 148 appearances for the ABAX Stadium outfit, but in 2014 turned down a new contract offer. Mark Little joined Bristol City on 1 July, 2014 and he has been playing for the Robins ever since. The English footballer, who was born on 20 August, 1988 made 23 appearances for Bristol City in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign and he scored one goal for the club. His main position is right back, but he is capable of playing as midfielder as well.
Highlighted Team (Brighton & Hove Albion):
Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club were formed in 1901. The Seagulls welcome their opponents at Falmer Stadium and the capacity of Brighton’s home ground is 30,750. The stadium was built in 2008 and it was opened in 2011. The venue is known for commercial purposes as American Express Community Stadium.
Brighton & Hove Albion compete in the Premier League and they play in blue and white stripes. The colour of Brighton’s away kit is green. The club made it to the FA Cup final in 1983, but English giants Manchester United proved to be a big catch for the Red Devils.
Brighton’s main rivals are Crystal Palace and the Seagulls have recorded 35 wins over the Eagles. Frank Stapleton, Martin Chivers, Joe Corrigan, Bobby Zamora, Mark Lawrenson, Bobby Smith, John Crumplin and Frank Worthington are notable footballers who played for Brighton in the past. The Albion is Preston’s yet another nickname.
