Our match prediction:
Burton Albion were on the verge of beating Fulham at Craven Cottage on Tuesday evening, but the capital club eventually scored a late equaliser and picked up one point from the match. The newcomers, though, proved their worth once again and it has to be noted that they extended their unbeaten run in the Championship to five games. Burton Albion, though, face an uphill task in Saturday’s football match against Brighton and, no doubt, they will be more than happy with one point from the game. The Seagulls are desperate to return to the Premier League and a hard-fought 1-0 win over league leaders Huddersfield Town certainly helped them move one step closer to meeting the goal. Brighton are a real force to be reckoned with at home, but given their poor away record, we predict that the two teams are going to share the spoils at Pirelli Stadium.
Highligted Player (Lucas Akins):
After making his first football steps in Huddersfield Town youth academy, Lucas Akins made his first-team debut against Northampton Town as he came as a substitute to replace Luke Beckett. However, he made no more than five appearances for Huddersfield Town as he was sent on loan to Nortwich Victoria. After spending two seasons at Hamilton Academical, the winger, who was born on 25 February 1989, joined Tranmere Rovers in July, 2010. Lucas Atkins scored 7 goals in 77 appearances for the club and in 2012 he signed a contract with Stevenage. The English footballer played 77 league games for the Boro and he scored 13 goals for the club. During the 2013/2014 campaign he was on Burton Albion’s radar and at the end of the season he joined the Pirelli Stadium outfit. Lucas Atkins enjoys playing football, but dancing is considered his passion as well. His main position is right wing, but he plays as both centre forward and left winger 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 compete in the Championship 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. Bristol City
