Sports Mole previews Tuesday's Championship encounter between Peterborough United and Brighton & Hove Albion.

Peterborough United will be looking to move further clear of the Championship relegation zone when they welcome Brighton & Hove Albion on Tuesday evening.

The home side will be hoping that Mark Little will be able to shake off a knock that he picked up in their last game against Watford.

They will also be hoping to continue the recent form that has seen them escape the relegation zone, beating two of the league's top three in the process.

Brighton, meanwhile, have very different ambitions. Gus Poyet's men are also in good form and will want to consolidate their playoff place in the final four games.

Danish goalkeeper Casper Ankergren is expected to continue in goal after keeping a clean sheet against Middlesbrough in Tomasz Kuszczak, otherwise there are no new injury worries for Poyet.

Recent form

Peterborough United: WDDWWD

Brighton & Hove Albion: WDDDWL

Possible starting lineups

Peterborough United: Olejnik; Alcock, Zakuani, Brisley, Swanson; McCann, Rowe, Ferdinand, Knight-Percival, Tomlin; Gayle

Brighton & Hove Albion: Ankergren; Greer, Calderon, Upson, Bridge; Crofts, Orlandi, Hammond, Lopez, Bridcutt; Ulloa
