Brighton & Hove Albion host Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday with the visitors desperate for point in their fight for survival.

Brighton & Hove Albion host relegation-threatened Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Amex on Saturday looking to keep up their run of form ahead of the playoffs.

The hosts confirmed their appearance in the playoffs with a solid 2-1 win away to Leeds United, but they are too far away from Watford in third to move up in the table even with victory.

For Wolves it is a must-win game if they are to stand a chance of going above both Peterborough United and Barnsley into 21st.

Brighton will be without Inigo Calderon, who was sent off against Leeds, so Bruno is likely to deputise while Wolves goalscorer Nouha Dicko could be in line for a start.
