Burnley are 5/4 favourites to beat Brighton as they seek a move back into the promotion spots whilst Leicester aim to get yet victory in a Midlands derby clash against Birmingham.
Burnley’s quest to return to the Premier league has been quite dramatic all season long but The Clarets will need to be at their best if they are to see of Brighton on Tuesday night.
Having spent much of the season in the automatic promotion spots, Burnley’s failure to win their last few games has seen them slip to third in the table just one point off the promised land.
Clarets boss Sean Dyche will have defender Ben Mee back in the squad after he missed the last couple of weeks battling a thigh injury.
Having not played at the weekend, there are no other injury concerns for The Clarets who will be hoping that in-form strike duo Danny Ings and Sam Vokes will be able to add to their impressive goal tallies this season.
Their opponents Brighton are once again in the hunt for a playoff spot and The Seagulls are not too far away from reaching their dream as they currently sit two points away in eighth spot.
Having rested numerous players in the FA Cup on Saturday, many of the team’s leading lights will be back in the squad including Leonardo Ulloa, Tomaz Kuszczak and David Lopez.
Aside from that, Will Buckley will still be out on the sidelines with a hamstring injury joining the likes of Andrew Crofts and Will Hoskins on the injury list.
Elsewhere, Leicester City will look to keep up their stunning form with victory against Birmingham City in a Midlands derby match-up.
The Foxes’ scintillating form has seen them storm to the top of the table and hold an eight point lead over second-placed QPR as they head into February.
In the one essential change for Leicester, Marcin Wasilewski comes into the squad to replace Liam Moore who is out with a broken rib whist Ignasi Miquel could also return to the back four after overcoming a thigh problem.
It will be a tough task for hosts Birmingham who have struggled all season long and find themselves languishing down in 17th place in the table.
Birmingham will be pleased to have Kyle Bartley back in the squad after his recent injury problems and he is likely to start straight away as Paul Robinson is ruled out of the clash through suspension.
With Burnley and Leicester both chasing wins, it’s means that the promotion race is really going to hot up as the sides look to secure their spot in the top flight for next season.
