I KNOW Brighton finally won in the week, while Blackburn had to settle for a disappointing draw at Millwall, but I still think it’s a good time to play the Seagulls.

I’ve been really surprised by them.

I know they had a change of manager in the summer but they’ve changed managers before and still got into the play-offs.

But at the moment they’re struggling and, as I say, while they beat Wigan on Tuesday, the pressure is still on Sami Hyypia given the bad start his side have made.

Because of that Blackburn have got to make sure they keep it tight in the first 20 minutes but also try and nick a goal because that would be a really big test of Brighton.

They get a good crowd at the Amex Stadium, it’s always a full house or close to a full house, and if the crowd get on their team’s back then it would be interesting to see if they get nervous.

And if they do then Blackburn certainly have the attacking and creative players to take advantage.

They are scoring goals from all different positions at the moment but Tuesday was a reminder that you shouldn’t have to score two or three goals a game to win a game.

We saw toward the back end of last season, including against Brighton at home, when they dropped needless points because they couldn’t keep the opposition out.

Here’s hoping it doesn’t creep back into their game because of late they have been defending better.

Before Tuesday’s game I would have taken a point all day long as Millwall is a tough place to go.

But obviously it can only go down as two points dropped having been 2-0 up against 10 men.

That said it will not look too bad a result if Blackburn go to Brighton and win.

And why shouldn’t they do that?

Despite the setback at the Den they are on a good streak and now they just have to carry it on and go into the international break with a victory.
