Click to follow

After defeating the leaders Reading convincingly last Monday, Peter Taylor's Brighton now have to concentrate on trimming a five-point deficit after Alan Pardew's side extended their advantage in a 0-0 draw at Swindon on Thursday.

Brighton meet Huddersfield at Withdean knowing that Lou Macari must reorganise his defence following the sale of Craig Armstrong to Sheffield Wednesday yesterday. The Terriers have also lost the striker Andy Booth for at least six weeks with a knee injury and face a tough task against a Brighton side who will want more goals from Bobby Zamora before the frontman starts a three-match ban.

Stoke, beaten in the Potteries derby last week, have a chance to recover away to struggling Notts County, while Brentford look for a third consecutive win at Peterborough.

The directors of Bury will use the home match against Cambridge to make a desperate plea for help, warning that the 117-year-old club will go out of business early next month after creditors demanded repayment of a £1m mortgage.
