    Brighton v Leeds

    Sky Bet Championship

    Venue: The American Express Community Stadium
    Date: Friday 9th December 2016
    Kick-off: 19:45 GMT
    Referee: Paul Tierney
    Assistants: Andy Garratt, Ian Hussin
    Fourth official: Steve Martin

    Brighton will go top of the Championship table if they beat Leeds on Friday, but will be without suspended left-back Gaetan Bong.

    Sebastien Pocognoli is in line to replace the Cameroonian, who was sent off in Saturday's 0-0 draw at Cardiff.

    Leeds midfielder Eunan O'Kane (groin) is a doubt, but defender Liam Cooper could return after ankle trouble.

    Ex-Albion midfielder Liam Bridcutt and forward Pablo Hernandez are both back in training after injury lay-offs.

    Brighton are aiming to extend their unbeaten run to 14 league games, and a draw against the Whites would move them level on points with leaders Newcastle.

    Midfielder Beram Kayal is on the mend after an ankle injury but centre-back Uwe Hunemeier is sidelined with a broken hand and right-back Liam Rosenior (ankle) is still out.

    Garry Monk's Leeds, who have won five of their last six in the Championship, are seven points behind the Seagulls and victory at the Amex Stadium would put them third in the table.


    • Brighton have won their last three home league games against Leeds, scoring seven and conceding none.
    • Indeed, Leeds have lost each of their last five league games against Brighton - one more will equal their joint-second worst losing run against another side in league competition (6 vs Cardiff, Huddersfield, Man City and Preston).
    • Brighton have kept the most clean sheets in the Championship this season (12).
    • Leeds have won three consecutive away matches for the first time since February 2015.
    • Brighton have won nine of their last 13 Championship matches and are unbeaten in that period (D4).
    • Chris Wood has netted 10 league goals for Leeds this season; no other player has scored more than twice for the club.
