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 7, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.

Swindon Town's away form is none too clever either, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While the Robins have hit 7 goals, 10 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Brighton & HA are stuck down in the relegation zone of Coca-Cola League One with a return of just 39 points from their 40 games thus far. Swindon Town find themselves struggling down in 18th position in the league having picked up 45 points from their 41 matches.

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. Score draw
