With six matches remaining in the 2015-16 season, Brighton sit in third spot in the Championship on 75 points but with Burnley on 77 points, the title itself isn’t out of reach, nor is automatic promotion.

One thing is for sure though.

Brighton will at the very least be in the Play Off mix you would think with the last spot taken by Derby County sitting on 67 points and Cardiff City in seventh place on 63 points.

Hopefully those remaining games will wrap up automatic promotion, if not a title charge meaning the Play Offs are irrelevant.
