Here is how we predict Leeds United and Brighton & Hove Albion will line up next week:

To be played on Monday 29th February 2016 at 19:45. Venue: Amex Stadium, Falmer

Odds: Brighton 5/6, Draw 5/2, Leeds 16/5

Brighton & Hove Albion welcome Leeds United to the Amex Stadium on Monday evening for their latest Championship clash.

The Seagulls are fourth in the second tier and while they are currently just three points behind leaders Hull City they could find themselves having to make up double that difference by the time they kick off next week.

As for Leeds, they are currently 17th in the table after a string of draws and while that has proved they are hard to beat the Whites have dropped far too many points in matches they would have won had they been more effective in front of goal.

Leeds are still without Giuseppe Bellusci as the Italian serves the second match of his suspension for collecting 10 bookings this season, so Ivorian Sol Bamba is expected to deputise, while young right-back Lewie Coyle did enough against Fulham last time out to warrant another start.

With all that in mind here is how we expect the two sides to line up on Monday night:
