History of the Brighton & Hove Albion v Watford fixture

Brighton & HA prepare to entertain Watford at Withdean Stadium on Monday evening, looking to continue an impressive record. The Seagulls are clearly on top, having won 25 and lost only 9 of the 46 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Withdean Stadium was just last season, in April 2003, as they swept to an impressive 4-0 win in a League Division One match.
