Brighton’s Championship season continues against Middlesbrough at the Amex Stadium on Saturday; with this a 12:30pm kick-off.

If Sky Sports knew this would be a top of the table clash heading into Christmas hats off to them! They couldn’t really have selected a bigger game could they with Brighton looking to return to the top of the table (and retain that unbeaten record) when Middlesbrough visit tomorrow lunchtime.

Chris Hughton definitely knows Lewis Dunk (suspension) is out after his sending off in midweek, which is a blow but Brighton have Uwe Hunemeier as cover so he should come in. Sam Baldock (thigh) is also back in training but Solly March (knee) has recently suffered a probably season-ending injury.

Middlesbrough like to rotate the squad around but it doesn’t make too much difference as they’ve kept something like six cleansheets in the last seven-matches! Rhys Williams (Achilles), Damia Abella (cruciate) and Alex Baptiste (leg) are all out long-term.

Brighton haven’t won in the last three-matches against Middlesbrough, losing two with Boro also unbeaten in the last six at Albion with four-matches won so a change in that run will be the aim as the Seagulls seek a positive result before Christmas. But will this happen?

Whatever the line up expectancy will be high and ahead of the game we’re looking for your views on what way you think it will go, which obviously requires you to vote in the latest poll one of three ways….

Brighton win
Middlesbrough win
