Preview – Football: Crystal Palace v Brighton & Hove Albion

Crystal Palace Brighton

Today in the televised football, we see a bottom-half clash as Crystal Palace and Brighton try their best to avoid relegation.

Brighton are five points above the relegation zone, while Palace are in turn three points above them. Brighton won’t go above Palace with a win unless they win by a sizable margin, but victory for either side should help to cement their place in the top flight next season.

Elsewhere, Man City, who are top of the table going into today, can go four points clear of Liverpool if they beat Watford this evening, as the Reds don’t play until tomorrow. Also on today is action from League One in the form of a big play-off clash between Charlton and Portsmouth, and in the National League the top two sides, Leyton Orient and Wrexham, face each other.
