Chris Hughton insists it is business as usual at Brighton despite the club’s precarious Premier League position. Brighton’s midweek loss to relegation rivals Cardiff – their fifth straight defeat in all competitions – leaves them anxiously looking over their shoulder with five games left to play.

The Seagulls hold a two-point advantage over Cardiff and do have a game in hand on the 18th-placed Bluebirds, but their daunting run-in includes fixtures against Arsenal, Manchester City and Tottenham. Ahead of the trip to Wolves, Brighton boss Hughton said: “I will always have regular chats with the chairman [Tony Bloom], Paul Barber [chief executive] and Dan Ashworth [technical director], who has come in.
“They are the ones I will speak to on a fairly regular basis. Most of that is about the games, the performances and how things are in the week with the training. “There would be nothing different now than at any stage of the season. “My only job at this moment is to set the tactics right and make sure that the players are disciplined enough around those tactics to give ourselves every chance of scoring and winning a game.”
