Seagulls Next For Foxes

Brighton & Hove Albion are the visitors to the Walkers Stadium tonight as they look to force themselves further away from the relegation zone.

Leicester on the other hand will be looking to build on the 9 point lead they currently possess at the top of League One, knowing that promotion is well within their reach this season.

In fact, Leicester's last defeat in the league came at Brighton, when the Seagulls battled back from two goals down to beat the Foxes 3-2 with two goals from Bradley Johnson. Since then the Foxes have won 13 and drew 2 of their last 15 league matches.

With Brighton sitting just a solitary point above the relegation zone, the team are looking perilously over their shoulders to avoid the drop.

Vital Quotes:

Brighton's Jason Jarrett: 'They're the best team in the league, and it's going to be tough going there. They're a huge club, but we're looking forward to it and hopefully we can get something out of it.'

Leicester City Team News:

Leicester striker Steve Howard is a potential doubt through illness, and could be replaced by either Paul Dickov or youngster Ashley Chambers up front.

Manager Nigel Pearson will be looking to stick with a similar team to the one which beat Huddersfield 4-2 at the weekend.

Player to watch: Matty Fryatt

Scored his 24th goal of the season on Saturday. Currently leading the assists chart too, the striker has been a deadly prescence in attack for the Foxes so far this season.

Brighton & Hove Albion Team News:

New signing and former-Fox Jason Jarrett could be in line to make his Brighton debut at the Walkers Stadium. The midfielder spent three months on loan at Leicester in 2007.

Jarrett's arrival may mean one of either Adam El-Abd or Tom Fraser may be demoted to the bench.

Adam Virgo is doubtful and Glenn Murray sidelined, so both should play no part in the game.

Player to watch: Nicky Forster

Bags of experience, the Brighton hitman has fount the net an impressive 23 times in just 56 starts for the club; a healthy return.
