Preview: Brighton & Hove Albion vs. Leicester City

Sports Mole previews Saturday's clash at the Amex as Brighton & Hove Albion take on league leaders Leicester City.

Championship leaders Leicester City travel to mid-table Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday looking for their sixth away win of the season.

The hosts looked as though they had turned a corner after a slow start, but defeat at home to Barnsley on Tuesday night has left them six points adrift of a playoff place.

The good news for the hosts' manage Oscar Garcia is that Leonardo Ulloa has returned to full training and could push for an appearance against Leicester.

Leicester lost to Sheffield Wednesday in their last game, which was another surprise defeat, but Nigel Pearson could name an unchanged side for the second game running.

Depending on other results, Brighton could move into eighth with a win, while Leicester could even drop to second with victory as they are top on goals scored only.
