Orlandi wants to send out a message to Albion's rivals

The Argus: Andrea Orlandi in the thick of the action against Port Vale Andrea Orlandi in the thick of the action against Port Vale

Andrea Orlandi has urged Albion to send a message to the rest of the Championship – by ending Burnley's unbeaten home record.

The Seagulls head for Turf Moor tonight and a swift reunion with former striker Ashley Barnes with Burnley only a point off an automatic promotion spot.

Albion inflicted one of the Lancastrian’s three defeats at The Amex in August, after visiting keeper Tom Heaton was sent-off in the first half.

The circumstances of tonight’s clash also remind Orlandi of a surprise 2-0 victory at table-topping Cardiff last season, when the Spaniard was on the scoresheet.

Orlandi told The Argus: “Burnley are where they are for a reason. We are up against Ashley, which is going to be another exciting point about the game, but I think against the top teams we always perform well. It’s a good chance to send a message to the league.

“Let’s see if we can beat them. I think we have a chance. I don’t think they are better than us.

“Last season against Cardiff was a turning point, so this is a good moment for us to step forward and say something.”

Hmmmm hope You are right Andrea and that Ashley does not prove he was right and we were wrong. Our away form has been better than home but I would take a draw now ,if offered one.

Take a point now, a cold miserable night in Burnley, think we will learn a lot about the mental strength of the side tonight.

I have two wishes for tonight.
1 That we win
2 That if the first wish isn't fulfilled, there isn't a knee jerk reaction which claims 'proof' the suits have betrayed us in the transfer window.

So according to The Northern Echo Connor Wickham could be on his way to Brighton as a "makeweight" for the Bridcutt deal. Blimey. If true then no wonder we let Barnes move on.

Back to the thread. The fact is we are good enough to beat Burnely yes, just as we could've beaten Derby, bar one problem....we can't score! To say Burnley are no better than us is ridiculous as they have many more points and have done that through scoring more goals than us, their defence are no mugs either!

That said, if we play to our potential, we can certainly win.

Now that's the sort of attitude and spirit (Orlandi's) that will get you promoted. Hard to maintain it though if a load of over paid second rate journeymen are recruited in a panic (I did try and warn Ian at the time). Difficult game for you lot tonight, but I think you will get a result.

I am sure the Burnley keeper was sent off in the second half although he should have been dismissed in the first after his professional foul on Bucker when through with only himself(the keeper) to beat.I think this game tonight could be a defining moment in our season and i take us to win well tonight, wishful thinking maybe but ho hum.
