The last time the two sides met, back in Aaron Connolly, Neal Maupay and Lewis Dunk all found the net in a 3-3 thriller at the Amex Stadium - a game that saw the hosts come back from a goal down twice in a highly entertaining ninety minutes of Premier League football.

Writing in his weekly predictions piece for BBC Sport, Mark Lawrenson turned his attention to Brighton's clash against Wolves, and tipped Graham Potter's side to win the game 2-0.

Justifying his prediction, the ex-Seagulls star claimed: “It is usually Brighton who struggle to score a second goal to finish games off, but they did that in impressive style to beat Leeds last week.

“Instead, it is Wolves who are finding goals hard to come by - they have managed two in the same game only once in their past 10 matches.“Nuno Espirito Santo's side are basically waiting for the season to end, and it has been a disappointing one for them. I am going with Brighton to win here. They are basically safe now and, because of that, they might play with a bit of freedom.”Meanwhile, Lawro's sparring partner for the week, The Sherlocks drummer and Sheffield Wednesday fan Brandon Cook, backed a 1-1 draw, and simply stated: “Not a lot of goals in this one.”
