Match Thread: Brighton & HA vs Wolves
December 8 2019
Wolves travel to the Amex stadium in Brighton for today's Premier League meeting seeking to extend their current unbeaten run to eleven games, and to regain their position in the top six.
Last season's game at Brighton was a dreadfully dull affair with the home team defending in force more or less throughout the game. Nowadays under new boss Graham Potter they play a much more expansive attacking game, and have some talented young players involved in their team. However their attacking play may suit Wolves much better as they can counter-attack at speed. Aaron Mooy caused Wolves problems at Molineux last season for Huddersfield and he is now at the heart of Brighton's team, so may be a dangerman for them.
Wolves have no new injury concerns, but Willy Boly and Morgan Gibbs-White remain unfit to play.
The game will feature on Sky's Super Sunday programme wth a kick off time of 4:30pm. Board members are encouraged to post their observations of the game for the benefit of those unable to follow it.

Unfortunately I can’t be part of the commentary today as I’m sitting in M’chester airport waiting for a delayed flight. Still at least I can watch the first half!! Ivybridge Wolf is at the game too.
Just put the tree up - seems like an even match so far but I'm only going on the BBC online commentary!
Cheshire - hope it's a holiday you're going on - have a great time - when you get there!
Thanks Wolverina we’re actually off to Vienna for 4 days Xmas shopping but our 4:25 departure has now been put back to 7pm!!! Still at least i’m able to see the game on Sky Go - when the wi-fi holds up!!
Glad to see Jota on the scoresheet at last.
Should have taken advantage in the first half before we gave away those two goals, another match we should probably have won but nonetheless we are unbeaten again which must do something for the teams mentality and morale.
No standout performances although Dendoncker did very well again and Bennet will have to do well to dislodge him. Passing from defence was not up to the usual standard and brought undue pressure.
Onwards and upwards.
Are we in 6th place? Err yes so why are we last?
@#$%& the BBC
I thought the match was very entertaining. I understand we were last on MOTD again - why??
Brighton were lively from the start but we soon got going. What a brilliant 1st goal, beautiful move, football can be so simple. Absolutely delighted for Diogo. Then the turning point. Jota one on one, misses (should have been 2 and possibly game over), instead 3 minutes later we were 2-1 down. Talk about deflation. Brighton’s first goal was a superb finish though. Maupay, what a pain. Great we kept going and Jota got the equaliser we deserved.
Obviously the second half was flatter but still a good contest and surely we should have made more of the positions we were in. Doc, Jiminez and Cutrone (or Neto) all guilty of looking for a pass rather than shooting as examples. Added to that, some agricultural treatment of Traore, chopped and scythed. Terrible stuff.
Overall maybe a draw was fair but I woke up this morning feeling frustrated and a touch deflated we couldn’t secure all 3 points. Again a match where we should have scored more goals but I’m not complaining too much, we support a smashin’ team and manager - long may it continue!
In summary very enjoyable day, very decent match and a great weekend . Trouble is I’ve seen us 5 times this season so far P5 W0 D5 L0 and am attracting draws all round. Still unbeaten though!
