Confirmed: Brighton and Leeds United lineups

Amex Stadium Brighton

Here are the teams as Brighton host Leeds United in the Championship.

Brighton go into the game against Leeds United in the Championship this evening under pressure. They’re under pressure because there are just three points separating them and a place in the bottom three as things stand. They’re also facing a side, which is bang in form and it’s up to them to show the home crowd that they have enough about their squad to stop Neil Redfearn’s team in their tracks and to register an important win. Brighton go into the game off the back of an important 4-3 win against Birmingham.

Leeds racked up another win over the weekend with a 1-0 victory away at Middlesbrough. Alex Mowatt’s strike was enough to get the side over the line and Neil Redfearn will be hoping for a more comfortable game this evening. If Leeds win this evening, they’ll have made it six wins in their last seven games and they stand every chance of closing the gap on the play-off places even further. There is tremendous belief, confidence and momentum surrounding the club at the moment, which they have to use to their advantage.
