    • Brighton gained their first win in five league meetings with Watford when Craig Mackail-Smith converted a 50th minute penalty to secure all three points in the reverse fixture on 18 September.
    • The Seagulls' last league double over the Hornets was in the old second Division in 1990-91, when they recorded a 4-0 aggregate from the two games.
    • Watford have recorded two wins in 10 league matches on Brighton soil.
    • Brighton, four places and three points outside the play-offs, have drawn their last three league games and are looking for a first win in five.
    • The Seagulls have not played since 18 December, and have become the Championship's draw specialists, with 10 of their 23 fixtures finishing level.
    • They have failed to score in more home games than any other club in the division (four).
    • Sixth-placed Watford, whose Boxing Day fixture with Bristol City was postponed, have lost only one of their last 10 games, winning six.
    • Gianfranco Zola's men are the top scorers away from home in this division, with 24 goals from 11 games.
    • The Hornets have also scored an unequalled five Championship goals in stoppage-time.

    Once again we meet up with Mr Sheldrake, this time he's staying out of the limelight (hopefully).
    Maybe Gus can have a nice chat with him on the touchline about THAT penalty, and the assaults on Casper and Tommy Elphick.
    Luckily, John Farries is not involved today.
    "Forget the goals, Vicente produced the moment of the match, if not the season here at the Amex, with a slalom like run,
    in which he beat six or seven players before unleashing a fierce drive that rattled the crossbar"
