Live on Sky Sports: Battle at the Sky Bet Championship summit - Burnley v Brighton & Hove Albion

20 November 2015

Burnley take on Brighton & Hove Albion on Sunday in a fixture that will shape the top of the Sky Bet Championship table – and it's live on Sky Sports!

Brighton currently sit second on 34 points and won their last game against Milton Keynes Dons 2-1. The Seagulls are still unbeaten this season, walking away with at least a point in all 16 matches.

Burnley sit in third on 32 points, just two below Brighton and, depending on Hull City's result on Saturday, the winner of this match could go top of the Championship at the final whistle.

The Clarets have only lost one of their last 10 games, drawing 0-0 with Wolverhampton Wanderers last time out.

Sean Dyche's side also boast one of the best records at home in the Championship, losing just once at Turf Moor, but Brighton have won three of the last four meetings between this pair.

“We are looking to win the game and push on”

Speaking ahead of the game, Burnley defender Michael Keane believes the home support will help he and his team-mates get their first win over Brighton since 2012.

“It's a massive game for us, they [Brighton] have done really well and obviously they're unbeaten,” he told

“We are only two points away from them though and if we beat them we'll go above them, so we are looking to win the game and push on.

“At home with the fans behind us we feel like we will score goals, so if we defend like we did against Wolves then hopefully we will keep a clean sheet again.”
