Mowbray believes the Seagulls, who currently occupy the final npower Championship play-off place, play the kind of football which could be suited to the top flight, but is confident Boro can deal with them at the Riverside Stadium.

He told the club's official website: "Brighton are a good team. They are probably the most spread-out, passing team in the division.

"They try to play, in my opinion, the right way and if they did get to the Premier League, they would be better suited than some other teams above them - like Swansea - because their style of play is more suited.

"Are they a better team than us? I would have to say no. We played Hull last week and watching the game, you wouldn't know who was second and who were ninth."

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
