Chris Hughton has urged Albion to get safety sorted before May.

The Seagulls launch a hectic schedule of five matches in a fortnight against Bournemouth at the Amex today.

They host relegation rivals Cardiff on Tuesday, go to Wolves on Easter Saturday, visit Spurs three days later and are at home to fellow strugglers Newcastle on April 27.

Albion end the season in May away to Arsenal and at home to title-chasing Manchester City, who beat them 1-0 at Wembley in the semi-finals of the FA Cup.

Hughton admitted: “It goes without saying that at this moment we won’t want to go into those (last) two games having to win or so.

“That’s not taking anything away and saying that we can’t.

“We ran a Man City team relatively close at the weekend.

“If I look at our last performance here (against City), after 70 minutes it was 0-0.

“It’s not that we can’t pick up points but the law of averages and with a sensible head on, we would prefer to not have to go into those games needing something.”

Hughton wants the Wembley performance against City to be the benchmark for the rest of the season in the fight for survival.

He said: “Sometimes it’s not too difficult to raise levels in that type of game.

“Because of who we were playing you can still get beat relatively comfortably because of the level of the opposition.

“It’s not so difficult to raise your game.

“We’ve got games now coming up until the end of the season where we want to see the same commitment that the team showed in the game last Saturday.”
