The club’s ticket office have now released all remaining home seats for sale, and fans wishing to attend this weekend’s game are strongly urged to move quickly to secure a seat, as there is now extremely limited availability, with less than 500 home tickets left for sale.

Chief executive Paul Barber said: “The response from Albion fans has been superb. We saw an absolutely outstanding turnout at MK Dons, we are now very well set for a home sell-out this weekend, with more than 1,400 Burnley fans adding to what should be a great atmosphere. We’re hoping for good home ticket sales for our last three home matches against Fulham, QPR and Derby County too.

“We also expect to sell-out our allocation for the two away trips to Charlton and Middlesbrough, and take very good numbers to the mid-week games at Birmingham City and Nottingham Forest. Our support, for our remaining games - home and away - is set to be exceptional, as it has been throughout the season, and that will only help Chris Hughton and our players in the final stages of what is a very exciting campaign.”

“Our message to Albion fans everywhere is please get your tickets as soon as possible if you want to be part of the run-in as we push for a place in the top two of the Championship. Every match is now a cup final and, as has been the case throughout this club’s history, our fans can make a real difference.”

Albion’s last sell-out for a league fixture at the Amex was the match against Wolverhampton Wanderers on the final day of the 2012/13 season, with the club already guaranteed a play-off place.
