Sports Mole previews the Championship clash between Brighton & Hove Albion and Hull City.

Hull City travel to Brighton & Hove Albion this weekend knowing that a win could see them replace Leicester City in second place in the Championship.

Their hosts also have promotion aspirations on their mind, going into the match five points away from the playoff places with a game in hand on several of the teams above them.

However, Gus Poyet's side have struggled with consistency for much of the season and will need to defend better than they did against Sheffield Wednesday last weekend to keep the high-flying Tigers at bay.

Hull boss Steve Bruce is without the services of Abdoulaye Faye due to a calf problem, but could hand debuts to Egyptian pair Ahmed Fathi and Gedo.
