Brighton & Hove Albion host rivals Crystal Palace in the Championship with both sides battling at the top end of the table.

Two big rivals in the Championship Brighton & Hove Albion and Crystal Palace clash at The Amex on Sunday for an early kickoff.

Brighton's hopes of a late playoff push took a hit in midweek as Gus Poyet's men fell to defeat at then-bottom side Barnsley.

Palace were held at home by Leeds United, but they have lost just one in eight in the Championship as they look for an automatic promotion spot.

Leonardo Ulloa missed a penalty against Barnsley but the goal he scored should be enough to keep him his starting place, while Wayne Bridge still looks unlikely to feature.

For Palace, Stephen Dobbie is ineligible as he is on loan from Brighton, so Andre Moritz could play in his place.
