Brighton remain perilously close to the bottom three in the Championship, but they are unbeaten in their previous three matches and looked to be heading in the right direction.

After last week’s 3-3 draw at Norwich the Seagulls’ are now priced at 12/1 to secure a top six finish come the end of the campaign, while BetVictor has them at 10/1 to be playing League One football next year.

Brighton have been boosted by the signing of Darren Bent from Aston Villa on a initial one-month loan deal.

Sami Hyypia, Seagulls’ boss, will be hoping that the former England man will be the catalyst to turn his sides fortunes around and they host Fulham on Saturday.

BetVictor have them at 11/10 to secure just a fourth league win of the year, while Fulham are 11/4 to come away with all three points and the draw is 5/2.

Bent is 1/2 to score during his stay at the Amex, 2/1 to score twice for the Club and 10/3 to score at least three times.

Fulham are one of Bent’s former sides and for him to net the opener on Saturday you can get odds of 6/1 with BetVictor, while the anytime market for the Englishman is 13/8. However, if Bent does not score during his loan spell at the club BetVictor are offering odds of 6/4.
