Brighton manager Chris Hughton has admitted that he does not care how boring his side are so long as they avoid relegation.
The Seagulls stayed up last term despite struggling for goals, particularly on their travels.
They face Southampton at St Mary's on Monday and Mark Hughes' team are similarly shot-shy.
Hughton said: "It's all about getting points. It's still about staying in this division and getting the points however you need to be.
"Apart from the top six, I am quite sure that if you ask most managers they would prefer to be a little boring and be guaranteed 50 points. They'd probably take that."
Jurgen Locadia will be on the bench again at Southampton while Romanian striker Florin Andone is close to a return to action as he continues his recovery from a groin problem.
Hughton added: "If you're a centre-forward or a forward player, if you aren't starting a game, there are more chances you will be involved in games than any other position.
"That is why we need the ones we've got very much on their toes and pushing for places."
Glenn Murray is 11/4 to score at any time at St Mary's in a match Brighton are 9/1 to win 1-0.
