Brighton and Hove Albion are now unbeaten in their last seven Championship outings, with their latest victory coming against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The only goal of the game came in the 14th minute through Sam Baldock, who headed home Gaetan Bong's cross.

With Huddersfield Town not playing until Wednesday night, the win moved Chris Hughton's side up to third, just two points behind Norwich City who slipped off top spot after their 2-2 draw with Fulham and Newcastle United's win at Barnsley.

The Seagulls are finding the consistency and resilience that they showed last season when they narrowly missed out on promotion, and Hughton knows it will be even tougher this time round with the added quality in the division.

However, in Anthony Knockaert they have one of the best players in the league, and keeping hold of him during the summer was their best piece of business. The goals of Glenn Murray have been a huge boost, but Brighton rely so much on the creativity and guile that Knockaert possesses.
