GUS Poyet believes Brighton are playing Millwall "at a good time" after the Lions lost their last two Championship matches.

The Seagulls arrive at The Den on Saturday on a four-game winning streak and Poyet has called on his players to capitalise on the home side's "bad run".

Millwall have been beaten by both Hull City and Cardiff City in the past seven days, during which time Brighton picked up maximum points against Sheffield Wednesday and Watford.

"They surprised me in the last three or four months of last season and it looks liked they would start this season in the same way," Poyet said in his pre-match press conference.

"They're on a bad run, so can we take advantage of that? It's a good game to play now. We need to go and play the way that I like, which depends on what is going on in the game.

"Sometimes you have to play deeper or higher, keep the ball, or you attack them.

"We lost two points away from home against Millwall last season [a 1-1 draw]. We were the better team, we missed a penalty and they scored from distance.

"We were going down hill at that moment in our season. In every game there's not much between the teams.

"We won at Watford but that doesn't mean we're going there to relax and take a draw. We're going there to win the game."
