Chris Hughton has urged his Brighton side to make the most of a run of games against teams around them in the table. The Seagulls resume domestic action looking to halt a run of back-to-back defeats when they host Leicester on Saturday.
With fixtures coming up against the likes of Huddersfield, Crystal Palace and Burnley before tackling both Chelsea and Arsenal later in December, Hughton does not want to let opportunities slip by. “We know that games at home bring more pressure to get results as well as ones against teams outside the top six,” the Brighton boss said.
“That doesn’t mean you will get those results but we are always realistic and we have to make the most of those opportunities. “We had a good spell but are now on the back of two defeats so we know the level we have to reach.”
