History of the Brighton & Hove Albion v Bournemouth fixture

Brighton & HA prepare to entertain Bournemouth at Withdean Stadium on Tuesday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Seagulls are clearly on top, winning 54.17% of the games played between the two.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Withdean Stadium was just last season, in September 2006, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2-2 draw in a League One match.

Recent respective form guides

Brighton & Hove Albion have been playing quite well at home, winning 3, drawing 2, and losing just 1. A total of 12 goals have been scored by the Seagulls in those games, with 8 conceded.

The away form of Bournemouth is pretty dire, managing a paltry 2 draws from the last six matches. While the Cherries have hit 6 goals, 13 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Brighton & HA's 30 points from 22 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 12th position. Bournemouth are stuck down in the relegation zone of Coca-Cola League One with a return of just 20 points from their 23 games thus far.
