The Seagulls have topped the table for most of the season and currently boast a four-point lead over their nearest rivals, Bournemouth, with Town a further four points adrift.

However, the Yorkshire outfit still face a trip to the Withdean Stadium this season and Lee has told skysports.com that no-one should rule them out of the title race.

"Brighton had another win when we drew this week and they are certainly the team to catch," he said.

Dramatic

"I think that there are three or four sides in the mix for that second spot and it is very tight to call, with no-one running away with anything at the moment.

"They aren't that far away and with all the games in this division the table can change dramatically in the space of a week.

"We have proven very hard to beat at the moment, but if we manage to turn the draws into wins then we will be pushing them all the way.

"You have to keep plugging away because if you lose, or even draw, then it is a nervous look at the scores around the grounds to see if you've lost ground on the rest."

He added: "I've been in this position before during previous promotions and every game is massive, so it should be a very tense and exciting end to the season."
