If Wolves were already having trouble scoring goals before attracting Costa back to the Premier League, their efforts to raise a league-low goal total of six have not been helped by the Spaniard's red card, but 19 conceded is the fewest of the bottom seven teams.
However, Wolves have only lost two of their seven home games in all competitions this season, with the most recent one coming in that 4-0 thrashing against Leicester City, so a trip back to Molineux is just what the doctor ordered for them as they look to end a three-game losing streak.
Costa wasn't exactly stepping up to the plate for Wolves' attacking dilemma, but his ban has only made Davis's problems there worse, and it could be argued that the hosts are playing Brighton at the worst possible time.
We can only see the Seagulls completing their difficult road stretch with a professional performance and three points to go along with it since they have a nearly totally fit team and morale that is undoubtedly at its greatest point of the season thus far.
