30,000 expected at Brighton as Play-Off race reaches crunch time

Saturday’s game at Brighton will see the biggest crowd that Town have played in front of this season, with 30,000 at the Amex Stadium for a crucial clash. 

The Seagulls are one place above Blues in the table, with the gap to the Play-Offs six points for Mick McCarthy’s side. 

That sixth placed team, Nottingham Forest face Derby at the weekend in an east midlands derby as the race for the Play-Off places reaches crunch time. 

“We have got some massive games coming up, starting with Brighton,” Town wideman Paul Anderson told the Club website. 

“Leicester and Burnley look like they have gone but the other places are up for grabs and we are still in there. 

“ Our next four games are against teams in the Play-Offs or around them and you think they are likely to dictate whether we are in with a chance of finishing in the top six or not.

“Hopefully we will be right in there but whatever happens, it’s still a massive progression for the Club from the last four or five years.”

Town will be backed by close on 1800 fans on the south coast.
