Match Preview

Dunk back to boost Seagulls Lewis Dunk returns to the Brighton squad for the visit of Hull on Saturday evening. The young centre-half missed the 3-1 defeat by Ipswich a fortnight ago through suspension after collecting five yellow cards this season and should come straight back in with Romain Vincelot making way. Winger Will Buckley has not recovered from his hamstring injury in time but he is expected to be back within the next week. Defenders Adam El-Abd (foot) and Tommy Elphick (Achilles) remain sidelined with the long-term injuries they suffered at the end of last season. Boss Gus Poyet has yet to decide whether to offer former Birmingham and Preston midfielder Darren Carter a permanent deal. He has spent the last two weeks on trial with the Seagulls. Hull midfield pair Paul McKenna and Tom Cairney are expected to return into contention. McKenna has missed the Tigers' last two matches due to a calf problem, while Cairney sat out the home win over Cardiff with the hamstring strain that forced his recent withdrawal from Scotland's Under-21s squad. Both might have to be content with a place on the substitutes' bench following the display of Robert Koren and Corry Evans in central midfield against Cardiff. Goalkeeper Adriano Basso is likely to shake off the knee problem that forced him off against Cardiff. Should he not make it, Peter Gulacsi will continue to deputise. Tigers skipper Andy Dawson remains sidelined with a knee injury, but long-term absentee Cameron Stewart is closing in on a return to first-team action following knee ligament damage. The winger has yet to feature this season. Hull are looking to extend their unbeaten run to seven matches.

Match Report

Seagulls tamed by Tigers Brighton's winless run extended to a sixth game after they were held to a goalless draw by a resilient Hull. The stalemate was far from dull, however, and the scoreline might well have been in double figures if not for the remarkable work of goalkeepers Casper Ankergren and Adriano Basso. Nigel Pearson's Tigers can now celebrate a run of seven games without loss in the npower Championship after an indifferent start to the season. Former Spain international Vicente provided two early chances for the Seagulls. With two minutes played, his outswinging corner met Matt Sparrow's right boot. Luckily for the visitors, Manchester United loanee Robbie Brady got across to block the flight of the powerful volley. Vicente's delivery caused further panic when an identical corner found a rising Lewis Dunk, who nodded left of Basso's goalmouth. The Tigers wrested control in the 14th minute, Matt Fryatt's weighted drive deflected away from danger by a brave Dunk. Five minutes later, Dunk put his body on the line once more to intercept a goalbound bullet header from James Chester. Craig Mackail-Smith, with five league goals to his name going into the clash, forced Basso to tip a fizzing shot round the post shortly before the half-hour mark. The visitors rallied again to feed a good ball through to Fryatt, who clipped his chance into the gloves of Ankergren. As the highly energetic first period came to a close, Ashley Barnes was left red-faced when he stubbed wide of goal from close range after accurate service from Gary Dicker. Both sides had successfully nullified each other in the first half and pushed to gain an advantage as early as possible following the break. Ex-Peterborough striker Mclean, with a solitary goal for Hull this campaign, raced on to Liam Rosenior's angled cross in the 48th minute, but his right-footed drive swerved wide of Ankergren's goal. Perhaps frustrated by the missed opportunity, Mclean found himself booked two minutes later after a foul on home defender Marcos Painter. And a lack of discipline from Corry Evans allowed Vicente another chance to demonstrate his dangerous ability from set-pieces, but the home crowd groaned as his curved free-kick dipped agonisingly over the crossbar. Mclean re-emerged as an attacking outlet for the Tigers in the 64th minute, arriving on the edge of the area to force a strong block from Ankergren, before reclaiming possession and stinging the Danish goalkeeper's palms with a fierce strike. Brady lightened the workload of the tireless Mclean in the 71st minute as he curled in a snapshot that Ankergren repelled at full-stretch. But it was Basso, left standing idle for much of the second half, who produced the most remarkable save of the clash. Yet again Vicente picked out a blue and white shirt, but Mackail-Smith's header was snatched up implausibly by the brilliant Brazilian stopper. Encouraged by a return to attacking manoeuvres, Seagulls boss Gus Poyet harried his players to push forward. But with barely 10 minutes remaining, Sparrow looped a cross over the Hull backline to a waiting Barnes who scooped his shot wide of the target. The pressure increased on the visitors when Mackail-Smith forced Basso to punch the ball over his crossbar with five minutes remaining, with Dunk again appearing to block a late Mclean drive, but the points were shared.
