Millwall v Brighton (Preview)

If Brighton are to remain in the Championship play off hunt we'll need to at least match the outcome of the game against Millwall at the Amex, when that ended in a draw earlier in the season.

Millwall are battling against relegation and will be after anything they can get but if Albion are to retain realistic play off aspirations I'd think the game at the Den is one we need to win really.

David Forde dislocated a finger in a defeat last weekend but Millwall hope to have their first choice goalkeeper available.

Injury had kept Mark Beevers out recently but he could return but Nicky Bailey remains injured.

Albion will have Jesse Lingard as an option after Oscar brought the Man United striker to the club until the end of the season on loan but I still think that he'll be on the bench to start with though.

Leonardo Ulloa is carrying some knocks but should be a starter again as he looks for a sixth successive goal with Tomasz Kuszczak, Gordon Greer and Bruno all expected to return after being rested for the FA cup defeat on Monday.

Also back should be Dale Stephens who missed the Hull defeat due to being cup tied but it's not so clear on Andrea Orlandi (ankle) and Will Buckley (hamstring) yet.

As mentioned the draw earlier in the season, 1-1 at the Amex, is something we need to at least match and we haven't lost to Millwall in the last five meetings so that record needs to be maintained to keep in touch with the play offs.

Drawing wouldn't be the worst possible result but winning with the game against Reading coming up soon would keep us nicely in touch with the top six and I do think we'll bounce back from the Wigan defeat last weekend, and the FA cup defeat, with a much needed win.

It'll be another tight encounter though I feel.
