Brighton & Hove Albion will be desperate to pick up a victory at home this weekend when they go up against Barnsley on Saturday.

Brighton & Hove Albion will try to secure three points on home turf when they host Barnsley in the Championship this weekend.

Gus Poyet's side struggled to get off the mark against Cardiff City with a goalless draw earlier this week, while Barnsley succumbed to a 3-1 loss at the hands of former Premier League side Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Poyet could call on the services of Kazenga LuaLua in order to place an extra man in midfield, which could force Ashley Barnes to make way.

Meanwhile, Barnsley boss Keith Hill could implement Stephen Dawson into the side in place of David Perkins, while Kelvin Etuhu should lead the line for the Tykes.

Brighton: Kuszczak; Bruno, Greer, El-Abd, Bridge; Crofts, Noone, Dicker, Bridcutt; LuaLua, Mackail-Smith

Barnsley: Gonzalez; Hassell, Golbourne, Foster, Wiseman; Dawson, Cywka, Mellis, Davies; Harewood, Etuhu

Sports Mole says: 2-0
