Losing only one game in their last 5 Championship games, Preston will be put under a lot of pressure when they host the league leaders Brighton & Hove Albion at the Deepdale in the 26th round of the Championship.
The hosts have been in a relatively solid form in recent weeks. The team have collected 8 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games. Their last game in the English Championship was against Burton Albion away from home where they won 1-0.
Preston are sitting in the 11th place in the league table with 36 points from 10 wins, 6 draws and 9 losses. They have scored 33 goals and conceded 32 since the start of the season.
Midfielder Ben Pearson and striker Jermaine Beckford are both suspended. Alex Baptiste is expected to miss out again with a knee injury, while John Welsh is not yet ready to return from his calf problem.
The visitors are in a much better form compared to the hosts. Brighton have been at the top of the Championship table for quite a while as they have established themselves as a promotion contenders. The team have collected all 15 possible points in their last five league games. Their last game was against Fulham away from home where they won 2-1.
Brighton are sitting at the top of the table with 54 points from 16 wins, 6 draws and 2 losses. They have scored 40 goals and conceded 15 since the start of the campaign.
Centre-back Lewis Dunk serves the final game of a two-match ban. Midfielder Beram Kayal scored on his return from four months out in the FA Cup last weekend but will not travel with the squad for this one.
