Promotion to the Premier League would certainly be very nice, however a Championship title would be the cherry on the cake. Brighton & Hove Albion boss Chris Hughton will be wanting both as he continues to steer his Seagulls side in the direction of the top flight and a win at home to Ipswich Town tomorrow evening would clearly be a huge boost as they attempt to shake loose from Newcastle United.

The Magpies sit a point above Brighton at the top of the table and Hughton will be wanting to retake pole position. Newcastle face a tricky journey to Norwich City on Tuesday evening and any slip-ups at Carrow Road will surely be taken advantage of by the Seagulls.

Visitors Ipswich Town have been a mixed bag this season. We say 'mixed bag' but to be totally honest they have been rather bad, especially of late. They managed a 1-0 win over Aston Villa at the weekend but in all honesty that's not really something to get too excited about is it. Otherwise they have been poor and with only one other win in the bag since December, we're not too confident of their chances against a Brighton side which have won their last seven competitive games at the Falmer Stadium.

The Seagulls are 11/20 in the outright winner market and this price should say it all really. The problem is, this gives us little scope in backing them to do the business on Tuesday evening. Go for a goalscorer and it becomes a little better and with Tomer Hemed banging in a brace in the 4-1 win over Burton Albion last weekend, we'll be backing him to score in his fifth successive Championship game by finding the net on Tuesday evening.

Our tip:Back Tomer Hemed to score anytime at 9/5 with Coral
