Recent respective form guides

Brighton & Hove Albion's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Seagulls have scored 4, a worringly large 7 have been leaked at the other end.

Bristol City's away form is none too clever either, with 3 victories and just 1 loss from the last six. The games have constituted a decent return of 9 goals for the Robins, and 6 goals against.

Brighton & HA's 45 points from 34 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 11th position. Bristol City's total of 56 points from their 32 games sees them sitting in the playoff places in Coca-Cola League One.
