Match Preview

Duo fit for Seagulls Kazenga LuaLua and Mauricio Taricco are fit for Brighton's clash with Leicester. Winger LuaLua and veteran full-back Taricco have been missing since the turn of the year with hamstring injuries but have trained this week. Craig Noone, who was the subject of a deadline day bid from Cardiff, also has hamstring trouble and he will face a late fitness test. Defenders Joe Mattock and Gonzalo Jara Reyes should be involved after joining the Seagulls on loan, and striker Sam Vokes could make his full debut following a substitute appearance at Crystal Palace in midweek. Full-back Marcos Painter is still out with a hamstring injury and centre-half Tommy Elphick (Achilles) and midfielder Gary Dicker (broken leg) are long-term absentees. Ben Marshall will be available to Leicester manager Nigel Pearson. Marshall moved to the King Power Stadium in a deadline-day deal but the winger's registration did not come through in time for him to be considered against Middlesbrough on Wednesday night. Fellow new signing Wes Morgan was an unused substitute in midweek. The former Nottingham Forest centre-half is one of a handful of other options available to Pearson should he wish to change things around against the Seagulls. Midfielder Danny Drinkwater made his home debut as a second-half substitute against Boro and will hope for his first start, as will on-loan Aston Villa striker Nathan Delfouneso. Veteran Steve Howard is also an alternative up front.

Match Report

Buckley snatches late win Will Buckley struck in the last minute to keep Brighton on the coattails of the clubs in the npower Championship play-off places with a 1-0 victory over Leicester. Buckley won the game for Albion shortly after they, like Leicester, had been reduced to 10 men. The Foxes went on to finish the match with nine players. It was an entertaining encounter between two evenly-matched sides but chances were few and far between. It sprung into life when Beckford was controversially sent off in the 53rd minute. Referee Andy Woolmer evened things up numerically with five minutes remaining by showing Matt Sparrow a second yellow card. Brighton were not deterred and took the lead through Buckley, and it might have been 2-0 in the end had Neil Danns not also been shown a red card for hauling down substitute Rodriguez Vicente in injury time. Brighton boss Gus Poyet, who this week ruled himself out of the running for the vacant managerial position at Leeds, named an unchanged side. Former Foxes full-back Joe Mattock was on the bench after joining Albion on loan from Portsmouth in a deadline-day deal. Danny Drinkwater was handed his full debut in the only change made by Leicester. The former Manchester United trainee replaced Paul Gallacher who dropped down to the bench. New signing Ben Marshall was also among the substitutes for Nigel Pearson's side. Leicester were presented with a good opportunity after 13 minutes when Adam El-Abd fouled Beckford just outside the area, but Paul Konchesky's curling free-kick was tame and easily saved by Peter Brezovan. Ashley Barnes headed wide for Brighton before David Nugent did likewise for Leicester either side of the half-hour mark. Beckford spurned the chance of the game just before half-time. The Brighton defence were caught out by a long ball over the top and Beckford, scorer of six goals in his last four matches prior to the clash with the Foxes, found himself clean through on goal. But his side-foot finish was weak and Brezovan made the block. Beckford was in the thick of the action again soon after the break. After mistiming a challenge on Lewis Dunk down near the corner flag, Beckford tapped the Brighton defender on the back and exchanged words with him. This led to the referee's assistant flagging furiously and Beckford being shown a straight red card by referee Andy Woolmer, much to the disbelief of the Leicester players. Brighton should have made their numerical advantage count in the 68th minute when Buckley went through one-on-one but Kasper Schmeichel got his angles right to block his shot. Sparrow was dismissed in the 85th minute after a reckless lunge on Leicester substitute Marshall. It looked like heading for a stalemate but in the final minute Vicente's cross from the right eluded the whole Foxes backline and Buckley volleyed home at the far post. Leicester's misery was compounded in injury time when Danns hauled down Vincente when he was bearing down on goal and was sent off.
