Brighton & Hove Albion have a chance to move into the playoff spots in the Championship when Burnley visit on Saturday.

Brighton & Hove Albion host out-of-form Burnley on Saturday looking for points to keep their playoff push alive.

The Seagulls managed a smash-and-grab victory in Cardiff in midweek, which should give them confidence upon their return to the South Coast.

Burnley have not won in four and were held to a 0-0 draw at home to Middlesbrough on Tuesday night.

Brighton manager Gus Poyet could be tempted to stick with same side that won in Wales, with no further suspension concerns among his squad.

Burnley are still without Ben Mee, who has a knee injury, but otherwise manager Sean Dyche has a strong squad to work with.
