FOOTBALL NEWS - Picking up points on the road will be newly promoted Brighton and Hove Albion's biggest challenge in the Premier League this season, manager Chris Hughton said ahead of Friday's trip to West Ham United.
Brighton have managed just one point away from home so far and have already tasted defeat three times on their travels. However, Hughton is hoping they can put on a better show at the London Stadium against a team just one place below them in the table.
Brighton are 14th on eight points with two wins, two draws and four losses, while West Ham are below them only on goal difference.
"Away form is going to be the most challenging," Hughton told a news conference on Thursday. "It's a game away from home, in a big stadium, and irrespective of league positions, we're up against a very talented team.
"We're a team that is having to get used to this division and the quality of it. They're a team that are around us at this moment in the league table and we're looking forward to it."
Hughton is less concerned about Brighton's home form, despite his team allowing Everton to snatch a 1-1 draw in their last league outing thanks to a late Wayne Rooney penalty.
