Brighton will hope to record their first Premier League win of 2019 when they host bottom-of-the-table Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

The Seagulls have collected just two points from their last seven league games and have dropped to 16th in the table. They lost 2-1 away to Leicester in their last game on Tuesday evening.

Huddersfield won 1-0 at home to Wolves on Tuesday as they ended a 14-game game winless run. It was Jan Siewert's first victory as Terriers boss.

What time does Brighton v Huddersfield kick off?

The match gets underway at the Amex from 3pm.

Is the game on TV?

No. Brighton are next on television when they travel to arch rivals Crystal Palace on March 9.

Highlights will be on Match Of The Day from at 10.20pm on Saturday evening.

What’s the team news?

Midfielder Pascal Gross limped off in Brighton's defeat at Leicester with a hamstring injury and is likely to miss out.

Defender Leon Balogun missed the defeat at the Foxes. Albion boss Chris Hughton will provide an update on the Nigerian international at Thursday's press conference.

Jose Izquierdo returned to action after just under three months out in the loss at Leicester. The Colombian will be hoping to force his way back into the starting line-up, as will the likes of Yves Bissouma, Bernardo and Bruno.

Mike Dean will be the man in the middle at the Amex on Saturday. He has shown 88 yellow cards and nine reds in 22 Premier League games this season.

Dean has issued a record 99 Premier League red cards during his career. Will his 100th come at the Amex?
