First published in Sport

Have Albion turned the corner?

Or do you envisage another letdown at the Amex?

Here’s your chance to tell us what you expect as the Seagulls host Bolton.

Sami Hyypia’s men surprised a few people at Elland Road on Tuesday, including the manager to a degree, as they turned on the style.

Just 15% of you who voted felt Albion would beat Leeds.

Similarly, only 25% predicted Sheffield Wednesday would take three points at the Amex two weeks ago.

Opinion was split last Saturday with 51% correctly backing Birmingham to win.

So how does it go today? Cast your vote in our poll and leave your comment below?

Its a bit early to say, but today will be another step round that corner. Our team in my opinion has the right blend to be Champions, whether this materialises is up to them & us supporter's.

Poyet's team was over rated filled with players not wanted by other teams, not giving 100% every game. One thing you must give 100% & more for your team every game, who ever you are or earn.
I for one would love to be in the Premiership, but with a team that gives 100% for the shirt & supporters. Bloom, barber, Burke so far have done a wonderful job getting us here, the same for the supporters of this Club. Today will be another small step, win or lose doesn't matter, what matters is how we perform on the field of battle as a team or unit. As a player of any sport you must ask yourself have I given my all, was there anymore that I could of given. If our Team gives 100% I am happy, forward lads, forward lads if you go down get up for the fight. Do you best & you will succeed you are Brighton, you are Brighton by the Sea. We are with you till the end, so come on my friend's yes my friend's get behind our team until the end.

Supporters will need to play their part today. If the noise and singing that the Albion supporters made on Tuesday night were to be replicated by the home Amex crowd the volume would be awesome.
Come on! We are the best supported team in the league so let's sound ike it!
A repeat of last year's result would suit just fine, thank you.

How things turn around! A couple of weeks ago it was all doom and gloom on here, now we're going to win the League......Of course I'd like us to win today, but for me the performance is as important as the result. At this stage in the rebuilding process and with the manager now having more options, I'd love to see us build on the Leeds result, but Bolton will be tough to break down and are desperate for a result, so it'll be interesting. Hopefully, one of the flair players will be able to break the deadlock. 2-0 Brighton, CMS to score both would be my perfect result.

With the new flair available we should win. We should have bought these type of players four years ago. Now optimistic for the new season.

Agree RS, there will be a few twists and turns before we can say we've arrived. We have 3 games before the window closes, can we bring some more quality? New players have had the adrenalin of the first game in a new team, can they maintain the momentum week in week out, I hope so. A big noisy crowd today should help things, the first goal will be vital, and for us, a second goal more so. Confident but apprehensive if that makes sense! UTA

You clearly don't like Poyet and it's clouding your judgement if you are posting such jingoistic nonsense. Sorry. One win and now we are going to be Champions?
Poyet's players not wanted by other teams???? What? Ulloa, Bridcutt, Buckley, Bennett, Noone etc..
Who said 'they' weren't giving 100%? That's not what I saw.

Bolton is coming to the Amex with some new players and looking to change their fate. They also won't be taken by surprise as much by Joao Teixeira as Leeds was. I don't believe one match at Eland Road has turned the Albion into the playoff side they so desperately want to be. I see today's match as a 1 - 1 draw with Lua Lua scoring for the Albion.
