Brighton will be aiming for another 3 points towards the 7 needed to secure promotion to the Premier League; they travel to Wolves who have been on the up since the turn of the year.
Wolves will be without Carl Ikeme and Jordan Graham, while Helder Costa is touch and go with his fitness. Wolves lost 3-1 last time out to Bristol City; their first in 7 games. Goals from Martin Paterson and a brace from Tammy Abraham put the Robins 3-0 in inside an hour, while Jon Dadi Bodvarsson scored a consolation goal late on. The leading scorer for Wolves this season is Costa with 12 goals.

Shane Duffy and Connor Goldson are the only long term absentees for the Seagulls, with both expected to miss the rest of the campaign.

FACT; Brighton have not won at Molineux in League competition since January 1991, having drawn 5 and lost 2 of their 7 trips since.
Last Time We Met: BHAFC - WWFC (18/10/16);
Brighton narrowly beat Wolves back in October, thanks to a early strike from Baldock.
Brighton have won 13 of the 29 previous encounters, while Wolves have only see victory 6 times. It has been a very low scoring affair since the memorable 3-3 draw back in 2012, with only 8 goals being scored in the 6 games after so don’t expect too many goals; there has only been 1 goalless draw.
