Brighton News and Form
The Seagulls took a battering at home on the weekend against Bournemouth and that dropped them to one place above the relegation zone. There is a five-point buffer between themselves and Cardiff, who they take on here. So three points for Brighton should really get them safe at the end of the day. Defeat and there would be huge stress put upon them. Brighton are currently on a three-match losing streak and have lost three of their last four at the Amex in the top flight as well.
Brighton have a home record of W6 D4 L1 this season. They have claimed just the one win in their last six there (W1 D1) so are having their struggles. Brighton average just a tiny bit over a goal per home game this season. They have taken a clean sheet in 31% of all their home games. 61% of the goals that they have shipped at the Amex have come after the half time break. Brighton have opened the scoring in less than half of their Premier League home games. Of the six wins that the Seagulls have earned at home this season, five of them have been by a one-goal margin. Only the current bottom three have worse home records than Brighton this season.

Cardiff News and Form
So this is pretty much a must-win situation for Cardiff at this point. They need a response and they need it now. They lost at Burnley over the weekend, their third straight league defeat. However, what will give them a bit of hope is that they are undefeated, home and away, against sides currently in the bottom five of the table with them (W4 D2). They have to leave it all out there on the pitch at the Amex. However, they don’t have away form behind them at all right now. Cardiff are on a three-match losing streak on their travels.
The Bluebirds have only scored the nine goals away from home this season and all but one of those were scored in the second half of matches. They have conceded at an average of 1.9 per game. Cardiff have collected a clean sheet in just three road games but don’t have one in any of their last six. Cardiff have conceded at least two goals in each of their last three away games. In no away game this season have Cardiff been leading at half time, in fact, they have been losing at the break in 9 of 16 games. Huddersfield have scored fewer league goals than Cardiff this season in the Premier League.
