Sports Mole previews the Championship match between Leeds United and Brighton & Hove Albion at Elland Road.

Leeds United will be trying to make it back-to-back home wins when they welcome Brighton & Hove Albion to Elland Road on Tuesday evening.

Newly-signed striker Billy Sharp marked his debut at the weekend with a goal in the team's 1-0 win over Middlesbrough, securing the club's first victory of the Championship season.

Another summer arrival, Giuseppe Bellusci, could make his first appearance for Dave Hockaday's side after missing out on a place in the matchday squad at the weekend.

Meanwhile, Brighton are still looking for their first points of the season after losing 1-0 to Birmingham City this weekend.

The Seagulls find themselves short in midfield after Paddy McCourt, who was on a trial with the club, injured his ankle in training, while winger Will Buckley completed a move to Sunderland this week.

However, Sami Hyypia's side have announced the signing of Danny Holla from ADO Den Haag today, so the midfielder could play a role on Tuesday.

Both sides won their home matches in the two fixtures between these teams last season.
