Brighton and Hove Albion vs Bristol City


Match Preview
Sam Baldock in contention for Championship title hopefuls Brighton

Brighton striker Sam Baldock could be fit to face former club Bristol City.

Baldock has missed the last six matches with a glute problem but is back in training and may play a part in what Albion hope will be a Championship title party.

Shane Duffy will miss out again after fracturing a metatarsal and is not expected to feature again until next season.

Fellow defender Connor Goldson remains sidelined after being diagnosed with a heart condition.

Bristol City are without Aaron Wilbraham as the veteran striker has been ruled out of the rest of the season with a knee problem.

Midfielder Gary O'Neil is also unlikely to play again in this campaign after picking up a hamstring injury at the start of April.

However, Mark Little showed no reaction to his hamstring concern in the 3-2 victory over Barnsley last weekend, and boss Lee Johnson could name an unchanged side.

The Robins will know before their Saturday evening kick-off whether they need a point to guarantee their Sky Bet Championship status.
