Albion tackle the first of a triple-header of away games as they travel to relegation-threatened Bristol City on Tuesday night.
An emphatic 4-1 victory over Huddersfield on Saturday, courtesy of a hat-trick from Leo Ulloa, helped to cement the Seagulls' top six spot - but they now embark on a hectic eight-day road trip that'll certainly test the side's promotion credentials.
In spite of their position at the bottom of the table, Sean O'Driscoll has breathed new life into a stagnating Robins side since his January appointment. With 4 wins in their last 4 home games, the West Country outfit will be looking to home comforts again to aid their fight for survival.
First-team coach Charlie Oatway insists the 3 points are all that matter as the side enter a jam-packed away schedule.
He told seagulls.co.uk, "These are three tough away games where we're going to be on the road a lot.
"I look at little pockets in the season and the two recent home games were a pocket for me to see if we could get six points, and these three away games in a week are another pocket of games.
"We need to take one game at a time of course, but we'll see how many points we can get and we'll see where that leaves us.
"We have got to go and try to win every game and that won't be anything new for Gus and Tano because they don't know any other way. They don't know how to settle for points, they just want to win every game."
Ryan Taylor (shoulder) and Richard Foster (Achilles) remain the only absentees for City as O'Driscoll has a near full-strength squad to choose from.
Forward Sam Baldock and winger Albert Adomah are both pushing for further involvement having been resigned to the bench in recent outings.
An astute acquisition from Derby in the summer, the often injury-troubled scouse striker has notched 11 useful goals to help City's desperate cause this season. A dynamic forward, Davies is tall, pacy and possesses a sweet left-foot, and will be looking to link with strike partner Jonathan Stead.
Albion welcome midfield lynchpin Liam Bridcutt back from a 2-game suspension, with the 23-year-old likely to go straight back into the starting line-up.
Wayne Bridge is again doubtful ahead of this one, with Inigo Calderon likely to continue at left-back. Vicente could return, however Will Hoskins and Andrea Crofts remain sidelined.
After a relatively promising start, the Argentine forward truly announced himself on the Amex stage with the first hat-trick at Albion's new abode on Saturday. A treble that included two powerful headers, displaying the sort of aerial dominance that had been missing from the Seagulls' attack for some time.
Albion boast a perfect record against the Robins since returning to the second tier, having won all 3 meetings without conceding a single goal.
They enjoyed a 2-0 home success earlier in the campaign, courtesy of goals from Dean Hammond and Andrea Orlandi, whilst a solitary late goal from Ashley Barnes settled the last meeting at Ashton Gate.
