Brighton promoted to EPL for first time since 1983

Brighton saw off Wigan 2-1 with strikes from Glenn Murray and Solly March to all but secure their place in the Premier League for next season.

What sort of team are they, and what chance will they have of doing well in the Premier League next season?

"We are reminded about it by the fans and everyone wants us to get promoted to take this group of players to the next level".

A dazzling, left-footed winger who does most of his work on the right, he arrived at Brighton last season and quickly established himself as the most talented player in the division.

Instead, the Seagulls will stick to the prudent approach that has served them so well in the last few seasons - and which ended up landing the big prize on Easter Monday.

"It's a wonderful achievement and there's so many people that I'm absolutely delighted for, certainly the chairman", said Hughton. Indeed, a draw against the latter on the last day of the season at the Riverside meant that Hughton's side missed out on promotion on goal difference.

This season, Brighton are top of The Championship, and look set to win the Football League title.

At the beginning of the season fans across the country were all too keen to point out to us how tough this league was.

The new stadium is ready and waiting for the Premier League, and the facilities and setup are nothing short of first class.

"It's very hard to talk in a way that I would like to talk because of course mathematically we're not over the line yet, but I'm well aware that it would take a hell of a turnaround not to happen". And, unlike at those two clubs, Brighton know they would be foolish to sack him even if they do get relegated, as he would still be the ideal candidate to lead them straight back up. And it's noticeable that several of Brighton's best players this season have had their fingers burned by the Premier League before. You can't guarantee anything, but we did as much as we could.

Barrow was particularly disappointed by the manner in which Wigan conceded the first goal, saying: "We let in a really poor goal".
