Brighton extend League One winning streak by beating Exeter

| 03.11.2010

Brighton continue to do everything right at the head of League One as their ability score goals while not conceding them at the other end make them virtually unstoppable on present form.

A year with Gus Poyet in charge was celebrated with a 3-0 home win over Exeter, which helped them maintain their eight-point cushion at the top of League One.

Not since Bournemouth struck an injury-time equaliser on their visit to the Withdean Stadium earlier in October as the Brighton goal been breached, while they have won all four games since this draw.

Alongside keeping four straight clean sheets, Brighton have been prolific at the other end of the pitch, scoring 15 times.

This impressive form has seen them cut to 7/4 to win League One and they passed one of their biggest tests when recently sealing a 3-0 victory away at Peterborough.

Another test of their promotion credentials is likely to arrive later this month when they travel to Southampton, who are currently the only team in better form than Brighton over the last six games.

The Saints have moved from potential relegation candidates to the play-off places since Nigel Adkins took charge and have won five of their last six games.

They may be still ten points adrift of Brighton, but could still prove a solid bet to win League One at 11/4.

Ashley Barnes has been influential in Brighton’s strong start as he has netted seven goals in the opening 15 League One games, including four in the last two fixtures.

Brighton take a break from league action next when they play in the first round of the FA Cup and based on their League One position they are currently the best team taking part in the competition.

Poyet’s team are 1/5 to beat Woking, who are currently sitting in mid-table in the Conference South.

Huddersfield are second in League One at present and 5/1 to win the title. See the full League One winners betting odds market.
