Just three points separate the Seagulls in 16th and Fulham, managed by Scott Parker, in 18th, who are unbeaten in five matches.
The Cottagers' upturn in form has made things very interesting. Indeed, West Brom are also showing signs of a possible revival.
All eyes are on each relegation-threatened club’s remaining fixtures – which includes Crystal Palace, Southampton, Burnley, Brighton, Newcastle, Fulham, West Brom and Sheffield United.
So, who has the hardest run-in on paper? We’ve worked out the average league position of Albion and their rivals’ remaining opponents – and it’s to say, there isn’t much in it at all.
