Sports Mole previews Cardiff City's game against Brighton & Hove Albion in the Championship on Tuesday evening.

League leaders Cardiff City welcome Brighton & Hove Albion to the Cardiff City Stadium in the Championship on Tuesday.

Malky Mackay is unlikely to make too many changes to the side that beat Bristol City 2-1 yesterday.

Brighton have just two wins from their last six matches, but are on the verge of breaking into the playoff places.

Gus Poyet will be without Will Hoskins, who sustained a knee ligament injury during the 1-1 draw with Blackburn Rovers on Tuesday, and will miss the rest of the season.
