Huddersfield v Brighton - Preview and possible lineups

Matt Morley by Matt Morley @rfutbol - 0 392

We take a look ahead to Saturday's Premier League clash between Huddersfield Town and Brighton & Hove Albion at the John Smith's Stadium.

TEAM NEWS:

Huddersfield: Versatile defender Terence Kongolo is a doubt after picking up a knock in the victory over Wolves last weekend, whilst Laurent Depoitre is also facing a race to be fit for the game with a groin problem. Defender Chris Lowe definitely misses out with a shoulder complaint.

Brighton: Forward Alireza Jahanbakhsh remains sidelined with a hamstring problem, whilst midfielder Dale Stephens will also miss out through suspension having been sent off in the recent defeat to Cardiff. Mat Ryan and Glenn Murray are both nursing knocks, but should be fit to play.

WHO'S SAYING WHAT?

Huddersfield boss David Wagner:

"Back-to-back wins in the Premier League are so difficult to achieve for clubs like us.

"We know this is something very big - we have done this only twice in the last season and now we have the opportunity to do it again, at home, against a very good opponent."

Brighton boss Chris Hughton on evergreen striker Glenn Murray:

"It is unusual for somebody of Glenn's age to be as regularly fit as he is, and of course scoring goals at the highest levels.

"He has a great desire to want to continue playing and at the best level he can, and also scoring goals. But it's one thing saying that and another actually doing it. So we're very thankful that he is actually doing it."

FORM:

Did you know?

Huddersfield have lost just one of their last 10 home league games against Brighton (W5, D4, L1).

Six of the last 10 games between the pair have ended in draws.

Brighton are without a league win in three games (D1, L2).

Steve Mounie has scored all three of Huddersfield's Premier League goals against Brighton.

POSSIBLE LINEUPS:

Huddersfield: Lossl; Smith, Schindler, Stankovic; Hadergjonaj, Mooy, Hogg, Billing, Durm; Pritchard, Mounie.

Brighton: Ryan; Bruno, Duffy, Dunk, Bernardo; Knockaert, Propper, Kayal, Izquierdo; Gross; Murray.
