History of the Brighton & Hove Albion v Huddersfield Town fixture

Huddersfield face a trip to Brighton & Hove Albion at Withdean Stadium on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Terriers will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 10 and win only 2 of the 18 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in March 2007, when they played out a goalless draw in a League One match.
