Huddersfield v Brighton (Preview)

Huddersfield v Brighton (Preview)

Brighton are looking to keep up the pressure on Reading, if not overtake them, on Good Friday when we travel to Huddersfield hoping to get the points we need.

Suspension will keep Huddersfield pair Joel Lynch and Peter Clark out, both serve a one match suspension for picking up two yellow cards in the last game played. Tommy Smith, Murray Wallace and Paul Dixon are among the options to come back in.

There aren't any new injury concerns for Huddersfield though but James Vaughan is still out after knee surgery and Keith Southern has only recently returned from a groin problem.

Albion could be without Matt Upson, knee and ankle injuries leave him a doubt for Oscar but he'll be given as long as possible to prove his fitness ahead of the trip to the John Smith's Stadium.

Tomasz Kuszczak is over his illness and should replace Casper Ankergren in goal but Will Buckley (hamstring) and Andrea Orlandi (thigh) are still out along with Andrew Crofts.

How often have we slipped up against sides we shouldn't in recent weeks, without a win in 10 it's one that we'll fancy winning to deepen Huddersfield's relegation worries and improve our play off hopes.

We drew 0-0 at the Amex back in December and are unbeaten in our last three games against them, we need to extend that to four with a point minimum but ideally all three.
