Brighton & HA are ready to welcome Nottingham Forest to Withdean Stadium on Saturday afternoon, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 3 of the 10 previous games, with the Seagulls winning just 2.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Withdean Stadium was within the last three years, in January 2005, when they played out a goalless draw in a Championship match.

FootyMad's prediction ...
Its been a distinctly poor show from Brighton & HA at home in recent games, and, though I cannot see a run starting here, I do think the Seagulls will at least gain a draw. No-score draw
|Brighton & HA||Drawn last 2 games at home.|
Failed to win in previous 5 home matches.
