Brighton are the visitors to the John Smith’s Stadium this afternoon as Huddersfield Town look to banish their nine match winless run.
Town will be without defenders Joel Lynch and captain Peter Clarke as both were sent off at the defeat at Derby last Saturday so Tommy Smith and Murray Wallace could be in the starting XI but their is no new injury concerns for manager Mark Robins.
Brighton are hoping defender Matt Upson will be fit to face Huddersfield having struggled with knee and ankle injuries and is set to take a late fitness test ahead of the match.
Goalkeeper Tomasz Kuszczak is set to start after missing last Saturday’s 3-0 win over Charlton Athletic with illness.
Will Buckley (hamstring) and Andrea Orlandi (thigh) will both miss the trip to West Yorkshire.
Brighton’s 2-1 win over Huddersfield Town last season was their first win in Huddersfield in their last six visits.
The Terriers have lost their last three matches on the bounce and have won only once in their last seven home games, drawing one and losing five. Their last league win was a 5-0 win over Barnsley on 1 March.
The Seagulls are unbeaten in their last four matches, winning two and also enjoying an impressive run on the road losing only once away from home since February.
