Chris Hughton’s Brighton and Hove Albion side came back from 2-0 down to secure a point against Fulham in the last round of Premier League fixtures. It was an important result for the Seagulls given their sluggish start to the campaign.
They currently sit in 14th place with four points from their first four matches; their only victory so far coming impressively against Manchester United at the Amex.
This weekend the Seagulls make the relatively short journey along the coast to take on Southampton.
They will be boosted by Lewis Dunk‘s return to the side after he overcame injury in the Fulham fixture. Bruno, meanwhile, is expected to return the squad after a hamstring problem but Martin Montoya is likely to retain his spot at right-back.
