Sports Mole previews Saturday's Championship encounter between Brighton & Hove Albion and Blackpool.

Brighton & Hove Albion host Blackpool on Saturday afternoon, looking for three points to cement their place in the Championship playoff places.

Gus Poyet's side moved up to fourth place in the table on Tuesday evening courtesy of a 0-0 draw away to Peterborough United. The result was the Seagulls' fourth draw in their last six games.

Blackpool make the long trip to the South Coast unbeaten in their last five matches, but Paul Ince's men are four points clear of the relegation zone.

Poyet has no fresh injury worries ahead of the game and he could name the same XI which started the match against Peterborough. Tomasz Kuszczak is expected to retain his place in goal at the expense of Casper Ankergren.

Paul Ince has Isaiah Osbourne available for selection after serving his three-match ban.
