The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

BRIGHTON & Hove Albion are back to win­ning ways and with seven games left and a pos­si­ble 21 points up for grabs, it looks like this could fi­nally be the Seag­ulls’ sea­son. And with Hud­der­s­field los­ing late to Bur­ton Albion they have a nine­point cush­ion over the York­shire side.

Black­burn can still get them­selves out of the rel­e­ga­tion zone as they showed prom­ise against a good Brighton team. This was Tony Mow­bray’s first loss as Black­burn man­ager and the for­mer Coven­try boss has cer­tainly turned the club’s for­tunes around – they had won two and drawn five of their pre­vi­ous seven matches.

And if they put in per­for­mances like this for the next seven games then they should be able to pull them­selves out of trou­ble.

De­spite not adding to his 13 goals this sea­son An­thony Knock­aert’s as­sist and a man-of-the­match per­for­mance will cer­tainly not go un­no­ticed as his bid for Cham­pi­onship Player of the Year gath­ers pace.
