Brighton and Hove Albion entertain Fulham in the Premier League on Wednesday in a huge clash at the bottom of the table.

Brighton have a 5 point cushion to the relegation zone and their opponents Fulham, however the Cottagers do have a game in hand over the Seagulls.

As such, Brighton boss Graham Potter will know the importance of maintaining a points gap between his side and the bottom three.

Scott Parker meanwhile will see the trip to the South Coast as a massive opportunity to gain some ground in the fight to stay up.

Albion won a Premier League game for the first time since mid-November when they beat Leeds United last time out – meanwhile Fulham are without a win in 9 games themselves, having drawn a host of matches in that time.

To make things even tougher for Graham Potter, he’s had to contend with a raft of injuries to his squad.

No fewer than 5 first team players are sidelined, including influential youngster Tariq Lamptey and experienced striker Danny Welbeck.

Aaron Connolly and Adam Lallana are both fighting for inclusion and will be put through late fitness tests before the game.

For Fulham, Terence Kongolo and Tom Cairney remain out with injury whilst Antonee Robinson will miss out due to being sent off against Chelsea recently.

Brighton v Fulham is a 7:30pm kick off on Wednesday 27th January.
