They’ve lost just one of their last four and are unbeaten in their last three home games in the league. Pascal Gross has already proved a coup with his quality in the final third. The Seagulls are yet to concede a first half goal at The Amex this campaign. Six of their nine matches have been goalless at half-time, including all four at The Amex.
