England – League Championship
Date: Tuesday, 13 September 2016,
Kick-Off: 19:45 UK
Venue: Falmer Stadium (Brighton).
The misery continue for Brighton and Hove Albion as they suffered another defeat in the weekend. Despite having most of the ball and better of the chances, they succumbed to a 2-0 defeat to Brentford. The Seagulls started the season with 2 wins and 2 draws, but they have dropped down to 13th in the league table with back-to-back defeats.
Huddersfield continued their good run and maintained their unbeaten run with an away 1-0 win at Leeds. They stay tight at the top of the table with 16 points from 6 matches with 5 wins during the period. This kind of a start was least expected, but this is a good platform if they are to aim for a top 6 finish this season.

Brighton vs Huddersfield: Prediction
Brighton and Hove Albion were one of the teams with a strong home record in the Championship last season. Starting from the beginning of 2015/16 season, they are unbeaten in 22 of their 26 home matches. They will fired up due to the unexpected home defeat against Brentford in the weekend.
At the same time, Huddersfield have made an excellent start to their season and they will be high on confidence. So a draw is very much on the cards here, also considering the fact that 5 of their last 8 meetings end up in same.
On the back of home advantage and the 8 match unbeaten run over Huddersfield, a double chance for Brighton to win or draw would be a perfect bet for this game.
