Gus Poyet has renewed his call for today's derby to pass off peacefully.

The Albion boss hopes fans stay out of trouble in the game with Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

Poyet said: "There are great opportunities to go and enjoy and support your team to your best. That’s it.

"It is about giving your maximum as a fan and expecting your team to give you the maximum because it is one of the most important games of the season.

"Go and support us and we will try our best to give you a very good afternoon.

"Don’t look for anything else because there is nothing else."

Palace boss Ian Holloway said: "We are all civilised people.

"Just because you support a team, you should not want to knock ten bells out of somebody else."

I can't see what all the 'We Hate Palace' fuss is about really. . .
Let's be honest, as all 'normal' fans would agree, it's all a bit childish. The so-called rivally is hardly based on a deep- rooted, secretarian, religious hatred which goes back for generations.
More like they are the closest club to us up the road.
Football should bring us together.
Anyway, having got that off my chest, I want nothing more than for us to win today.Three points and theoretically we could be up to 4th place.
I just hope that no one gets their teeth knocked out in a booze- fueled rumpus outside the ground.
Love thy Neighbour.
UP THE ALBION!

A good derby match is all about the game but if violence raises it's ugly head, then the game becomes secondary and that's not how it is supposed to be. If any fool wearing a Brighton shirt gets into it with Palace fans, and evidence shows that he was the cause, he should be identified and then banned for life from the Amex.
