Jake Robinson may not be scoring goals at the moment for Albion but his name still sells shirts.

The 20-year-old striker remains a firm favourite with fans, even though he will be trying to end a 14-game drought at Brentford today.

Robinson has not scored in League Once since a hat-trick at Huddersfield at the end of October and not in any competition for two months.

He was last on target against Stafford Rangers in the FA Cup at the start of December but his replica shirt is still the one Seagulls supporters want most.

Ian Green, manager of the club shop in Queens Road, Brighton, revealed: "It is between Jake, Dean Cox and Dean Hammond.

"They are the three main sellers but if I had to pick one I would say it's Jake. The fans still like him!

"The demand is not like in the days of Bobby Zamora and Leon Knight though. Every other kid was wearing their shirt."

Robinson's new partner Bas Savage has only scored two goals in his career but manager Dean Wilkins believes the former Gillingham powerhouse can bring other attributes to the team. "He has got decent mobility for a big guy," Wilkins said. "He is in good shape fitness wise and he holds the ball up well.

"I think we need to improve him in the air a wee bit, because he should be a bigger threat."

Wilkins, scorer of the only goal when Albion last won at Brentford on Boxing Day 1995, has urged his team not to become embroiled in a physical battle in today's relegation scrap at Griffin Park.

He said: "We're now at the business end of the season. Clubs are either fighting for the play-offs or to get away from the bottom.

"It will certainly be a very committed game but we mustn't get too wrapped up in the occasion and forget what we are good at.

"We don't want games to become scrappy and messy, because we are not a particularly phsyical side. We are at our best when we are fluent."

Brentford are without French midfielder Thomas Pinault through suspension but they have strengthened their defence by signing 6ft 3ins Garry Richards on loan from Colchester for a month.

The 20-year-old centre half headed Colchester to victory at home to Preston in the Championship last week.

Angola-born striker Marco Paulo Rebelo-Lopes is expected to make his delayed debut for Albion's Reserves in a rearranged game against Bournemouth at Worthing on Wednesday (2pm).

The 30-year-old trialist was due to face Bournemouth earlier this week but the match was postponed because the Woodside Road pitch was frozen.

The 6ft 2ins Rebelo-Lopes has scored 14 goals in 57 games in the past two seasons for relegated French second division side Laval.

He previously had a spell with Estoril-Praia in Portugal.
