Brighton & Hove Albion ready to use their attacking options in an attempt to end a seven – match winless streak at home to Peterborough tonight.
Peterborough are still reeling after loosing 2-1 in their last match against Sheffield Wednesday and with, they will be ready to do all they can to get them out of the relegation zone where they currently stand.
Despite a lack of form, The Albion are currently 10th and with attacking players Kazenga Lua Lua, Stephen Dobbie and David Lopez all said to be in line for a first team place it suggests that manager, Gus Poyet is possibly looking to attack from the start in tonight’s match, in attempt to collect the three points the club need to progress up the table.
Liam Bridcutt is out with injury and will be replaced by either Andrew Crofts or Gary Dicker whilst Lewis Dunk is in line for his first championship appearance this season, replacing El –Abd who is out with a hamstring injury.
Travelling side Peterborough are also missing some players. Darren Ferguson’s side will be without Kgosi Ntlhe, Tommy Rowe, Peter Hart and Grant Hibbert.
Brighton striker Craig Mackail Smith, a former player for Peterborough will be hoping to add another goal to his already impressive tally of 8 goals this season
Mackail Smith is three goals shy of 100 career goals and will more than likely be the one to watch in tonight’s match.
The last time the Albion played Peterborough was at home last season where they won 2-0 and went straight to the top of the championship table. This might well be an omen for the seaside club and it will be interesting if they can replicate the success from the last time the two sides played.
