Sports Mole previews the Championship meeting between Brighton & Hove Albion and Ipswich Town.

Championship leaders Brighton & Hove Albion have lost just one of their five matches at the Amex Stadium this season.

Their only defeat at home came at the hands of Birmingham City at the weekend, who left the South Coast with all three points courtesy of a 1-0 victory.

Manager Gus Poyet will reportedly have Spanish duo Bruno and Andre Orlandi at his disposal after the pair missed the loss to Birmingham through injury.

However, the match has come too soon for Craig Makail-Smith, who is still sidelined with a hamstring problem.

Visiting Ipswich manager Paul Jewell has been under pressure in recent weeks following a string of negative results.

Striker Michael Chopra has given his coach a boast ahead of this match though by overcoming a groin injury that had kept him out of Town's last two league encounters.

Ipswich head into the match 23rd in the Championship table.
