Brighton welcome Rotherham United to the Amex Stadium on Saturday afternoon, with Sami Hyypia's side looking to overturn their poor form as they take on an in form Millers side.
Albion fought hard for a 1-1 draw at a tough Huddersfield side, whilst Rotherham played their part in a thrilling 3-3 draw with Fulham. Neither of the sides have any new injury worries since their last outings, and both managers will have selection headaches as they look for the right squad to challenge their opposing numbers. Last time out, Chris O'Grady replaced the injured Joao Teixeira for Brighton, and he will be looking to keep his place in the Albion squad to face his former employers, whom he played 51 league games for, scoring 13. Rotherham on the other hand will be looking to keep their front line the same, with the pacey Paul Taylor on the right, supporting Revell and Clarke-Harris up front, with Pringle controlling the left. And despite the latter being favorites on paper due to recent form, Sami Hyypia said his Brighton side were looking to 'turn a corner' in their results, and he will do his best to make sure that happens on Saturday.
For me, I have to go with a Rotherham win. Despite Brighton coming close against tough teams recently, Rotherham have also had some tricky games, picking up 8 points against Blackburn, Norwich, Leeds and Fulham. The form of the front men at Rotherham, with both strikers scoring 2 in 2, and both wingers picking up an assist each in the last outing, will cause problems for a shaky Brighton defense. Having said that, our defense was very inconsistent against Fulham, but I expect them to hopefully make amends for it. In no way does this mean Brighton won't grab a win, or a draw. I feel that the most likely result is a Millers win, however.
Score prediction - Brighton 0-2 Rotherham
