Paul Clement feels Derby County have a big advantage over Brighton & Hove Albion

Derby County Huddle

Derby County and Brighton & Hove Albion are two of the Championship's form sides.

Paul Clement believes that Derby County have a big advantage going into their match against Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday, as they are at home.

Brighton have gone unbeaten through their season so far, and they are currently sitting on top of the Championship table.

However, Clement insists that his team will not be fearful of taking on the high-flying Seagulls, as they will be playing in front of their own supporters.

Brighton’s start to the season has caught many observers off guard, with few expecting them to be among the promotion-chasing pack.

Chris Hughton’s side have been solid defensively, though, while they have also shown great quality going forward.

Derby have also been in good form over recent weeks, and Clement’s side are full of confidence.

The Rams have lost just one of their last 14 matches, and they have moved up to third place in the standings as a result.

If Derby are able to beat Brighton, they will move to within one point of the south coast club, and take a big step towards promotion.
