Brighton manager Gus Poyet feels Saturday's opponents Blackburn are in a false position in the Championship table.
The Seagulls head to Ewood Park to take on a Rovers side currently down in 15th having lost four of their last five matches.
But Poyet feels they will turn the corner soon, although he is determined to make them wait until after Saturday's clash.
"When the fixtures came out in the summer this is one of the games I was looking forward to straight away," said Poyet.
"They have a very good squad and there are plenty of teams in the middle of the table, so if any of them have a great end they will finish in a good position.
"I'm sure that Blackburn have got the potential, the money and the fanbase to do very well in this division so I'm sure it's a matter of time for them. I just hope that starts on Boxing Day and not on Saturday."
