Brighton or Derby to win as the Championship gets underway on Saturday at the iPro Stadium?

Then again, which is more than possible of course, it could be a draw!

This 3pm kick-off will see Brighton looking to put the disappointment of last season’s final day failure to secure promotion behind us, then the subsequent play-off defeat and go again.

Chris Hughton has added to the squad this summer and in the main managed to keep those at Brighton he wanted to so Albion are well set as we start against another side beaten in the play-offs last season with Derby, who are likely to be among the favourites to challenge for a Premier League place again.
