Hughton expects tough test

  • Seagulls just above drop zone
  • Owls seeking home success

Brighton boss Chris Hughton is expecting a big test of his side at Hillsborough on Saturday.

The Seagulls arrive in S6 on Valentine’s Day flirting with relegation having won just one game in their last six and Hughton says there will be no less pressure this weekend:

“It’s a tough place to go and quite a difficult pitch as well at this particular moment, so we certainly know we’ll be in for a tough game.

“I think they’ve done very well this season, they’ve got a fairly consistent team. They’ve had a little bit of a dip in form during more recent times, but that’s probably more of a testament to the good first half of the season that they had.”

Hughton was also complimentary to his counterpart tomorrow, Stuart Gray, adding:

“It’s a good fit, he’s managed the club very well. He is a manager with a lot of good experience and is a very good coach.

“He’s been an assistant manager as well, so he’s been around for quite some time. I think he’s had a very good apprenticeship on all aspects of managing, being an assistant and a coach.

“He’s using that to very good effect at the moment.”
