Tip Reasoning

  • Brighton have drawn nine of their last 11 games in all competitions
  • Wolves have failed to score in each of their last four
  • Four of the last five meetings between these two sides have finished level

Will Brighton’s extra-time payoff?

Graham Potter’s Brighton got a few days notice that their clash with Tottenham wouldn’t go ahead at the weekend, which allowed them to turn attention to this fixture. That added time might be a blessing for the Seagulls, who are out to end a 10-game winless run.

However, that hasn’t condemned the hosts to a bad campaign. They’ve been able to avoid defeats for the most part in that run, which has kept them in mid-table. They’re a point closer to the top-four than the bottom three, which is progress for the Seagulls.

Tough break for Wolves

While Brighton are out for a return to form, Wolves are looking to bounce back from consecutive defeats. The visitors had put themselves in a good position, but 1-0 losses to both Liverpool and Man City were a set-back. Bruno Lange’s side were unlucky in both defeats, so expect them to fair better here.

The visitors have struggled for results this term, already suffering seven defeats – with each of those coming to nil. However, Wolves had lost once in nine before meeting the current top two. Getting back to that form will be crucial, but the absence of Raul Jimenez through suspension hits hard for a side with just 12 goals in 16 matches.

Hard to split pair

Wolves head into this game having failed to score in their last four, while they’ve found the net in less than half of their league games this term. They are unbeaten in five meetings with Brighton, although four of those have finished level.

Meanwhile, Brighton have drawn eight of 15 league games this term and nine of their last 11 games in all competitions have finished level. Given that run and the record between the two sides, I’m backing a draw between these two on Wednesday. Given it’s a meeting between two of the lowest scoring sides in the league, backing a 0-0 correct score looks like the right way to go.

Brighton predicted lineup: Sanchez; Lamptey, Veltman, Burn, Cucurella; Bissouma, Moder; Gross, Mwepu, March; Maupay

Wolves predicted lineup: Sa; Kilman, Coady, Saiss; Semedo, Neves, Moutinho, Ait-Nouri; Trincao, Hee-Chan, Traore
