Recent respective form guides

Brighton & Hove Albion's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While Seagulls have scored 9, a worringly large 14 have been leaked at the other end.

Leeds Utd.'s away form is none too clever either, winning 2 of the last six, but losing the other 4. A generous 11 goals have been both scored and conceded in this period.

Brighton & HA are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 23 points from 23 matches. Leeds Utd.'s 36 points from 24 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 10th position.
