Brighton will kick of their 2015/16 Championship campaign at home to Nottingham Forest, as fans can watch live streaming of Notts Forest’s trip to the South Coast on Friday night.
Brighton and Hove Albion need to step up their performances to a great extent if they are to perform better in the upcoming season as compared to previous where they managed to collect merely 47 points after 46 games, and they face a tough opener as Nottingham Forest come the Amex.
Finishing 20th in a league of 24 is never an ideal situation for any club and that is why Brighton has been pretty active in the transfer market this time around.
After signing former Hull City defender, Liam Rosenior, on a three year deal, the Seagulls have set their sights on recruiting more players before the end of the transfer window in order to bolster the squad.
One area where Brighton would be looking to strengthen is attack. Club’s top scored for last season was Dunk, who managed to score just 7 goals in all competition all season.
And he scored only one goal more than J. Teixeira, who came second with 6 goals.
Theses stats are not much encouraging for the bosses at the club hence calling for a quality striker who can take the club to the top.
However, the good news for the club is that two of the senior players have signed new deals to stay with the club for another season.
Goalkeeper Casper Ankergren and defender Inigo Calderon have signed new one-year deals with the Championship club, and that has come as a welcome move for the bosses, who are looking to strengthen the team ahead of the new season.
Brighton have also strengthened their backroom staff with the signing of Charlton goalkeeper coach, Ben Roberts.
The Seagulls would love to do better this time around but they need a miraculous turn around to achieve that feat in the coming Championship season.
