Brighton vs Crystal Palace

England, Championship – Play Offs, 13.05.2013, 20:45h

Gustavo Poyet, Dan Petrescu, Ruud Gullit, Gianfranco Zola, Gianluca Vialli all have been great players and now they are great managers. Well, some of them stopped from doing it – Gullit and Vialli, but the others are marching on. Gustavo Poyet chosen to take a club from League One and fly with it towards the Premier League. brighton vs crystal palaceIt is about to land there, but there are few obstacles ahead. Brighton managed a good 0-0 in London against Crystal Palace and the team is now favorite to conclude on their own ground. Bruno Saltor (calf), Craig Mackail-Smith (Achilles) and Will Hoskins (knee) remain unavailable, but the home side is a tough nut to crack at home. They lost just 2 times home and have the best defensive in the League. Manager of Crystal Palace, Ian Holloway has managed to get the promotion with Blackpool few seasons ago and he is certainly able to build a solid resistance on The American Express Community Stadium (Brighton, East Sussex). The team was playing poor in the last period, but managed to get some points that helped them find the way to Play Offs. They were the dominant side few days ago in the match played in London, but Brighton looked rocked solid in the back. Striker Stephen Dobbie is ineligible as he is on loan from Brighton, while top scorer Glenn Murray (knee) will not be available either! Home side is going to be the main team tonight. They are having some solid game play in the middle of the park and are very positive. Crystal Palace should be opening themselves if they will want something here. They will try to use the counters in the first part, but we have to remember that Brighton conceded just 17 goals at home this season. The fact that Murray and Jonny Williams are missing is a very important factor in my suggestion!


Bet: 2 or 3 goals on match @ 2.05
