LUFC - Leeds v Brighton preview

Leeds entertain Brighton and Hove Albion this weekend hoping to get back on track after two defeats in the last week.

Form
Leeds have lost their last two after winning six in a row, their last defeat was the midweek Johnstones Paint Trophy defeat at Rotherham.
Their home record so far this season has been won two, drawn one and lost one.

Brighton drew 3-3 with Cheltenham at The Withdean last weekend, they drew 2-2 with Leyton orient in the Johnstones Paint Trophy in midweek before going through on penalties at home.

So far away from home in the League Brighton remain unbeaten, winning two and drawing two.

Team News
Leeds
The Whites will definitely be without Alan Sheehan who had a reoccurrence of his hamstring injury in the Rotherham game.
After making eight changes for the midweek game boss Gary McAllister will probably revert back to last Saturday`s side at Peterborough.


Brighton
Albion boss Mickey Adams will give a late fitness test to last weekend`s hat trick hero Glenn Murray who picked up a thigh strain in that game.
With fellow striker Nicky Forster still sidelined the Seagulls may have to go with Adam Virgo and Joe Anyinsah.
Matt Richards and Jake Robinson both have knocks and will face late fitness tests.

History
The clubs have met on fourteen previous occasions at Elland Road with Leeds having much the better record.
Brighton have only ever won on one occasion back in 1985, Leeds have won eight with five draws.
When the clubs met at Elland Road last season the game finished 0-0.
