Sports Mole looks ahead to the Good Friday Championship match between struggling Huddersfield and playoff-chasing Brighton.

Huddersfield Town need to put a stop to their recent dip in form to ensure that they are not dragged into the relegation battle, and next face playoff-chasing Brighton & Hove Albion on Good Friday.

The Terriers are nine without a win and now 17th in the table, six points above the bottom three.

Mark Robins has seen his side lose three games in a row and last time out at Derby County centre-backs Joel Lynch and Peter Clarke were both sent off.

The duo will miss the visit of Brighton so Murray Wallace and Tommy Smith are likely to start in defence alongside Anthony Gerrard.

Visitors Brighton are only outside of the playoffs on goal difference and will be after their third consecutive win at the John Smith's Stadium.

Oscar Garcia could welcome back Tomasz Kuszczak between the sticks while further forward Kazenga LuaLua could earn another start on the wing.

The reverse fixture ended as a goalless draw at the Amex back in December.

Huddersfield: LLLDDL

Brighton: WWDDLL

Huddersfield: Smithies; Smith, Gerrard, Wallace; Hammill, Norwood, Hogg, Clayton, Nixon; Ward, Wells

Brighton: Kuszczak; Bruno, Upson, Greer, Ward; Andrews, Stephens, Forster-Caskey; LuaLua, Ulloa, Lingard

Sports Mole says: 1-2
