Brighton are back in action on Tuesday night, hoping to extend their 6 point gap back to 3rd place Huddersfield. They take on a Ipswich side who secured their first win in 7 games on Saturday.
Ipswich will be without Jonathan Williams, Steven Taylor, Christophe Berra, Tommy Smith and Adam Webster, but could welcome back Cole Skuse from injury. A late winner from Emyr Huws ensured a victory for the Tractor Boys, against a poor Aston Villa side, who are winless in 8. In-form man Tom Lawrence is the leading scorer for the Suffolk side, with 8 goals this term.
