Brighton v Leeds United: match preview

Brighton missed an opportunity to ease their relegation concerns with the 1-0 defeat at Sheffield United and face a tricky run-in, starting against a Leeds side unbeaten in their last six. Graham Potter’s team won the return fixture at Elland Road thanks to an early goal from Neal Maupay, who will be desperate to atone for a shocking miss at Bramall Lane. Ben White is available to face his former club after suspension, while Leeds are still without the injured Raphinha. Rodrigo could return to the bench as Marcelo Bielsa’s team look to continue their late push for a Europa League spot.
