Brighton & Hove Albion take on Leicester City in the Championship looking to create a gap between them in the league.

Brighton & Hove Albion face Leicester City on Saturday in a vital clash in the race for the Championship playoff places.

The hosts missed a chance to go fifth in the league after they were held to a 0-0 stalemate by Charlton Athletic on Tuesday night.

Leicester are on an abysmal run of form, with no wins in their last seven games which stretches back to the end of February.

Despite not scoring against Charlton, Gus Poyet must keep faith with Leonardo Ulloa up front with Ashley Barnes still missing through suspension and Craig Mackail-Smith injured.

Nigel Pearson might be tempted to name five in midfield, with David Nugent possibly dropping to the bench.
