Brighton can ease fears with win over Watford

Anthony Knockaert is a key man for Brighton
1 of 1

Kick-off 3pm Saturday

Brighton have been sliding closer to the relegation scrap after seven games without a win but they can claim a much-needed three points against injury and suspension-ravaged Watford.

The home side will have to play their first league match of the season without banned centre-back Shane Duffy but their problems look minimal compared to Watford's.

The Hornets and their manager Marco Silva were receiving plenty of plaudits a few months ago but they are on the slide after three successive defeats.

Recommendation
Brighton
1pt 13-8 general
