Sports Mole looks ahead to Saturday's Championship meeting between Brighton and Derby as Oscar Garcia searches for his first win as Seagulls manager.

New Brighton & Hove Albion manager Oscar Garcia will already feel that Saturday's second league game of the campaign is a must-win encounter.

Luke Murphy's injury-time winner for Leeds broke Brighton hearts last weekend and they followed that up with a limp exit to the Football League's newest club - Newport County - in the Capital One Cup.

Inigo Calderon was shown a straight red card and will miss the next three matches for his involvement in a challenge which saw Newport captain Byron Anthony suffer a double leg break.

Kemy Agustien is the most likely replacement for Calderon. If the former Swansea man came in, Andrew Crofts may have to switch to full-back.

Unlike Garcia, opposite number Nigel Clough is yet to taste defeat this season with Derby County.

After a 1-1 draw with Blackburn Rovers to begin the campaign, Clough's side went to Oldham on Tuesday and avoided an upset thanks to Michael Jacobs's first-half goal.

The last time these two sides met was back in January, when Brighton edged out the Rams 2-1 at the Amex.
