The Seagulls have picked up just one point from their last three matches after Jamie Vardy rescued a late point for ten-man Leicester at the weekend.

Huddersfield have hit form and seven points from three matches has lifted them to 14th, five points behind 12th-placed Brighton.

Last season, Huddersfield beat Brighton 2-0 at home, before the teams drew 1-1 at the Amex later in the season.

What time does Huddersfield v Brighton kick off?

Kick-off is at 3pm at the John Smith's Stadium. It's the second of three successive 3pm Saturday kick-offs for the Seagulls.

Is the game on TV?

No. Albion are not on television again until the match with Arsenal on Boxing Day.

What's the team news?

Brighton will hope Iranian winger Alireza Jahanbakhsh is fit to return after missing the last two matches with a slight hamstring strain.

Striker Glenn Murray and goalkeeper Mathew Ryan both picked up knocks against Leicester on Saturday but should be fit.

Full-backs Martin Montoya and Gaetan Bong will hope to return to the starting line-up after being dropped for the game with Leicester, Bruno and Bernardo taking their places.

Solly March could also come back into the starting 11, after being named on the bench against Leicester. The winger/number ten had started all of Brighton's previous 12 Premier League games this season.

Dale Stephens serves the second match of a three-game suspension.

Huddersfield go into the match on the back of seven points from their last three matches and David Wagner will have to decide if he goes with an unchanged team after Saturday's 2-0 win at Wolves.

Defender Mathias 'Zanka' Jorgensen is back available after being suspended for the win at Wolves having collected five bookings. Chris Lowe missed the match at Molineux with a shoulder injury.

Steve Mounie scored both goals in Huddersfield's 2-0 victory at home to Albion last season and is likely to lead the line.

Who is the referee?

Michael Oliver is the man in the middle. He has shown 27 yellow cards and three reds in 11 Premier League matches this season.

The assistant referees will be Simon Bennett and Mick McDonough, with Jonathan Moss the fourth official.

What are the betting odds?

Huddersfield are favourites to collect all three points at 6/4 on PaddyPower, with the draw 15/8 and a Brighton victory 21/10.

Albion are 13/2 to record a 1-0 win - the scoreline they won by at Newcastle earlier this season. A repeat of Huddersfield's 2-0 victory from last season is 9/1.

Brighton striker Glenn Murray is 5/1 to score first, while Huddersfield forward Steve Mounie is 11/2 to net the opening goal.

Terriers midfielder Alex Pritchard, a former target of Albion, is 7/1 to net the opener.

Brighton defenders Lewis Dunk and Shane Duffy have both scored twice this season and are both priced at 30/1 to score the first goal - and 12/1 to net anytime.

Murray is 15/8 to score anytime, with Mounie 21/10 and Pritchard is 11/4.
