The incredible stretch of bad luck currently being endured by Brighton & Hove Albion continued this afternoon, as the seasiders fell to a concerning defeat at the hands of West Brom.

Graham Potter’s men made the trip to the Hawthorns a short time ago, for their latest Premier League outing.

The Seagulls headed into the clash desperate for a positive result, after failing to secure victories in any of their prior 3 outings in the English top-flight.

Such struggles, in turn, had seen Brighton dragged back into the thick of the relegation scrap ahead of kick-off this afternoon.

Kyle Bartley bagged the only goal of the game at the Hawthorns, rising highest to nod home Conor Gallagher’s corner with 11 minutes on the clock:

Even more alarming is the fact that the seaside outfit have now managed to score just a solitary goal from an expected 8 (EIGHT) across their last three outings:
