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

Brighton v Ipswich (Preview)

Ipswich are an outside bet, maybe even a long shot, for the play offs now, but they'll come to the Amex knowing they've got to beat Brighton. Maybe this could play into our hands when we meet on Saturday.

After missing the win over Bolton due to illness Matt Upson is now fit and well and almost certain to get an instant recall into Oscar's starting line up to partner Gordon Greer, meaning Lewis Dunk will be the unlucky man to miss out.

Keith Andrews couldn't play against the club he's on loan from but can against another former side so will be back in the squad but Andrea Orlandi (thigh) isn't likely to make it again.

Long term injuries are something Will Hoskins (knee) and Craig Mackail-Smith (Achilles) are looking to overcome with both close to full fitness, Hoskins is making the slightly better progress and is an outside bet to take a place on the bench.

Ipswich could be without Cole Skuse, due to a leg injury in last week's defeat to one of our promotion rivals Wigan, and a first league game this season missed is likely for the midfielder.

David McGoldrick (knee) and Anthony Wordsworth (back) are also out but Frank Nouble can return after missing the last two games.

Albion were beaten by Ipswich at Portman Road earlier in the season so revenge is on the agenda, but first and foremost securing another win is the aim to keep the pressure on those sitting just above us in the play off positions.

Defeat isn't terminal but would see us lose some of our momentum and with us now eight unbeaten at the Amex it'll be hoped we can extend this closer to double figures, which if we can should be enough for us to make the top six at the end of the season and that's the main aim.

Cleansheets are something we're famed for this season and another one tomorrow and I'd fancy us to score and win, which could see us end Saturday in the play off positions if results go for us.
