    Brighton v Wigan

    Sky Bet Championship

    Venue: The American Express Community Stadium
    Date: Monday 17th April 2017
    Kick-off: 15:00 BST
    Referee: James Linington
    Assistants: Neil Davies, Mark Pottage
    Fourth official: Ashvin Degnarain

    Chris Hughton will field his strongest side as Brighton look for a win to clinch promotion to the Premier League,

    Gaetan Bong, Liam Rosenior and Beram Kayal are all in contention after sitting out the victory over Wolves.

    Nick Powell is likely to remain on the bench for Wigan, despite scoring an 11-minute hat-trick as they came from two goals down to beat Barnsley 3-2.

    Forwards Omar Bogle (thigh) and Will Grigg (knee) are both expected to miss the game at the Amex Stadium.

    Brighton need four points to secure promotion, but have a vastly superior goal difference compared to third-placed Huddersfield, so one more win should be enough for the Seagulls to get back to the top flight after a 34-year absence.


    • Brighton have netted one goal in each of their last five league games against Wigan. They last put two past them in March 2005, in a 4-2 defeat.
    • Wigan have lost five of their seven away trips to Brighton in the Football League, though have won two of the last three.
    • Dale Stephens has scored in each of the last two meetings between Brighton and Wigan.
    • The Seagulls have won the most home Championship points this season (51) - they've been promoted in each of the five previous seasons they've amassed 51 home points or more, most recently in 2010-11.
    • Wigan have won one of their 11 games against the current top seven in the Championship this season (2-1 at Huddersfield), losing their last five matches.
