Match preview

Chris Hughton and Neil Warnock

Brighton & Hove Albion are targeting a return to winning ways after their run of three straight victories was halted by Everton.

They visit a Cardiff City side who are seeking to bounce back from two defeats and move out of the bottom three.

Team news

Joe Ralls is available again for Cardiff but Jazz Richards (hamstring) and Kenneth Zohore (calf) will both miss out through injury and Harry Arter is suspended.

Brighton continue to be without Pascal Gross, Davy Propper (ankle) and David Button (knee), while Alireza Jahanbakhsh is likely to be absent with a hamstring strain.

Did you know?

Cardiff and Brighton have never met before in the top flight. This is the fourth new top-flight fixture this season after AFC Bournemouth v Cardiff, Brighton v Fulham and AFC Bournemouth v Fulham.

The Bluebirds are aiming to halt their habit of conceding the opening goal, having done so eight times in the Premier League this season, the most of any team, level with Fulham.

Brighton are targeting their second PL away win in 20 matches (D5 L13), having beaten Newcastle United last month.

Chris Hughton has won four of his five managerial league meetings with Neil Warnock, drawing the other and keeping a clean sheet every time.
