Team news

Brighton
Leading goal scorer Glenn Murray is Albion`s main doubt with a stomach strain. David Livermore is back in training after six weeks out having knee cartilage surgery, remember him? He signed for Leeds and left ten days later in the summer of 2006!

Leeds
The Whites hope to welcome back Jermaine Beckford after injury whilst new loan signing`s Richard Naylor and Carl Dickinson will be pushing for a starting place.


History
The clubs have met fifteen times at Brighton and Leeds won on their last visit to the Withdean when Tresor Kandol scored a late goal to secure a 1-0 victory.

Overall Brighton have the better record with seven wins to Leeds five and three draws.
The clubs met earlier in the season at Elland Road when Leeds won 3-1 with two goals from Beckford and one from Becchio.
