Leonardo Ulloa has added to Brighton's injury problems ahead of the clash with Nottingham Forest.
The striker, who has just returned from a three-match ban, was carried off on a stretcher during Tuesday's draw against Sheffield Wednesday with a foot injury and faces two months out.
He joins Craig Mackail-Smith (Achilles) and Will Hoskins (knee) on the sidlelines meaning Ashley Barnes is once again the Seagulls' only available forward.
Midfielders Andrew Crofts (groin), Liam Bridcutt (hernia) and Andrea Orlandi (knee) are also struggling with injuries.
Boss Billy Davies will assess a quartet of players before Nottingham Forest make the long trip.
Centre-half Kelvin Wilson and midfielders Guy Moussi, Jamie Paterson and Radi Majewski all missed the 1-1 draw at Charlton on Tuesday night.
Wilson has now missed four matches with the back injury he suffered during the 2-2 home draw with Middlesbrough while Moussi was still nursing the groin problem that forced him off against Derby at the weekend.
Paterson was still enduring the effects of his recent bout of illness and a knock ruled out Majewski at The Valley.
