Burnley and Brighton should play out a close encounter on Sunday afternoon

The unstoppable force against the immoveable object. Burnley and Brighton have enjoyed strong seasons to date, with the teams sitting third and second respectively in the Championship table.

Incredibly, the Seagulls are unbeaten after sixteen matches played, with Chris Hughton’s side having clocked up plenty of wins earlier in the campaign although Albion have drawn six of their past nine matches.

Brighton are clearly made of stern stuff, having taken a point from trips to Reading and Sheffield Wednesday, with just twelve goals conceded and they won’t be easily beaten at Turf Moor.

Perhaps they won’t be beaten at all, with Burnley sitting two points behind their opponents as Sean Dyche continues to have the Midas touch with a Clarets team who are looking to make their stay outside the Premier League a short one.

The Lancashire side have won their past three home matches and it helps to have a striker like Andre Gray banging in the goals, with the former Brentford man having plundered four goals in his past three matches.

It’s possible that his predatory nature will help Burnley over the line although you wouldn’t have made a bean opposing Brighton in any Championship match this season and it might not pay to do this on Sunday.

Therefore, the draw has to represent value. Neither side are going to run away with a victory considering both defences are likely to be robust. Interestingly, Brighton have yet to fall behind on the road this term and it could be fascinating to see how they react to falling a goal behind.

The bookies offer a shade bigger than 2/1 that this game ends all square and you would imagine that would be the outcome several times if this fixture was played over and over.
