Bolton Wanderers host Brighton on Saturday, with both sides looking at playoff finishes.

Two sides in contention for the Championship playoff spots meet at the Reebok Stadium on Saturday, with both Bolton Wanderers and Brighton & Hove Albion in excellent form.

Bolton have won their last four league games and are unbeaten in seven; they are also unbeaten at home since Boxing Day.

Brighton have not lost in six league games, with four of those ending in victory for Gus Poyet's men, although they were held 0-0 by Bristol City on Tuesday night.

Dougie Freedman has no fresh injury or suspension concerns in his Bolton side and could well name the same lineup from the 1-0 win against Blackburn Rovers, although match winner Chris Eagles might start.

Poyet is struggling for numbers up front after Craig Mackail-Smith's injury in midweek, but Leonardo Ulloa will come back into the XI after sitting out the last game following his hat-trick against Huddersfield Town.
