Brighton boss Oscar Garcia will have to make one change for the visit of Huddersfield.
Craig Conway has returned to Cardiff after his loan spell came to an end following last weekend's 1-0 win at Middlesbrough, so Kazenga LuaLua could start his first match since recovering from knee surgery in October.
Fellow winger Will Buckley is set to return to the squad after an ankle knock but goalkeeper Tomasz Kuszczak (stomach) and defender Gordon Greer (calf) remain doubts after missing out at Boro.
Midfielder Andrea Orlandi is close to returning after a knee op but Garcia does not want to risk him too soon.
Huddersfield defender Murray Wallace is expected to step in for the suspended Joel Lynch.
Lynch sits out a one-game ban following his dismissal in last week's home defeat to Reading and Wallace is hoping to make his first start since September.
Manager Mark Robins has no new selection issues, but leading goalscorer James Vaughan remains sidelined with the ankle problem which kept him out last week and midfielder Jonathan Hogg is still struggling with a hip problem.
Midfielder Keith Southern and teenager Duane Holmes are in contention for recalls and striker Cristian Lopez is pushing for his first start for the club.
