Middlesbrough striker Kike sends Bolton to defeat in midweek despite a challenge by Kevin McNaughton, who misses today's game at the Amex

First published in Sport by

Albion have been warned they might find the going tougher at home today.

Bolton boss Dougie Freedman was impressed by the Seagulls’ 2-0 midweek win at Leeds.

But he reckons his side can secure a similar season-launching win at the Amex.

Freedman, whose side have one point from three games, said: “In this division a win can turn things for you.

“They had a good win the other night. I watched the game and they played well.

“They will be a little bit more confident than they have been.

“Because of the systems a lot of teams are playing, it helps them away from home on the counter-attack.

“It was the same with Wolves at Fulham on Wednesday which I also watched.

“We will go there with a gameplan that I think will help us beat Brighton.

“There will not be a lot in the game.”

Bolton have lost experienced right-back Kevin McNaughton to a hamstring injury.

They started the season with a 3-0 defeat at Watford and have since drawn 2-2 with Nottingham Forest and lost 2-1 to Middlesbrough, both at home.

Ha ha ha - very true, I should have double-checked!
However, you get my drift and as Bolton have registered just three shots on target in their last two games with one of those a pen we can only hope that with a repeat of Tuesdays sterling performance that Freedmans will be there for the taking!!

Plenty of room in the back of their net by the look of their last results.

It was Mandy Rice-Davies, actually, if pedantry is your thing.
