For Albion fans it has been the most glorious season in recent memory – promotion secured, a record winning run, a new 22,000 state-of-the-art stadium, and all done with a beautiful brand of football envied by every side outside Barcelona.
Here are the facts behind a remarkable campaign:
- More wins this season than any other league side in England
- Not lost at home for over a year
- Have not lost back-to-back league fixtures all season
- Eleven consecutive home wins at the Withdean Stadium
- Collected a maximum 24 points from their eight fixtures in March
- Won 10 of the last 11 league games (only broken by 2-2 draw at in-form Rochdale)
- Six clean sheets in nine games (ironically bookended by two 4-3 wins)
- Fourth promotion at the Withdean
- First Football League team to secure promotion this season
- Will be crowned champions if they win at Walsall on Saturday.
