'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Vital Preview: Derby v Brighton

Brighton travel to Derby on Saturday, who until recently just couldn't stop winning but now they can't stop losing and have lost their last three to see their promotion bid stall but Albion are in full swing.

Injury has seen Richard Keogh missing for a couple of months but if passed fit he could return to the Derby defence.

Patrick Bamford joined Derby on loan from Chelsea until the end of the season earlier this month and after making his debut when he came on in the Leicester defeat he could make his full debut.

Albion suffered the season ending injury blow to Andrew Crofts last weekend so he's out for certain and injuries will keep Will Buckley, Will Hoskins and Craig Mackail-Smith out once again.

It'll be unlikely that Jeffrey Monakana will come in for an instant debut, he'll start his career with us coming through the development squad for the time being but with plenty of first team football under his belt it's not a given he won't.

Derby won the reverse fixture at the Amex in August 2-1, but Albion haven't lost at Derby in the last three meetings.

With just one defeat on our last 14 games, and with Derby losing their last three, when you also add the good record that Brighton have when facing Derby away it looks positive for another win.
