Micky Adams knows that Brighton are locked into a run of good form and he says that only a disaster can make Brighton veer off the promotion trail after the Seagulls' 4-1 demolition of Barnet at the Withdean Stadium.

After a Bobby Zamora brace capped an excellent victory over Tony Cottee's side, which moved the Seagulls ahead of Cardiff in the race for automatic promotion to Division Two, a delighted Adams said:

"We are dead on schedule."

"It was a good performance, a professional job. We were in control throughout the game."

Albion now stand second in the league table and after the dramas of the late 1990s, Adams is delighted with the confidence his Brighton side have played with since he joined the club in 1999.

Adams' reign as boss followed three of the most harrowing years in Seagulls' history.

Only a decade and a half since playing in the 1983 FA Cup final, Brighton were in danger of losing their League status for three years running and had financial problems which led to them having to give up their stadium, the Goldstone Ground.

However, the clubs' fortunes have been transformed this season and another win was never really in doubt with players like Bobby Zamora in such rich form.

"We carried on where we left off against Hull last Saturday," said Adams.

"Once we got a goal it was quite comfortable."

The Brighton boss is beginning to see his efforts come to fruition after two years on the South coast and he is hopeful that he can return the club to Division Two after a turbulent four years in the Third Division.
