Nicky Forster looks set to be omitted from the Brighton squad to face Huddersfield.
The veteran striker was left out of Saturday's 1-1 draw at Leyton Orient after claiming he had been placed on the transfer list.
"The situation with Nicky hasn't changed since the weekend," said manager Gus Poyet.
Goalkeeper Michel Kuipers will play despite taking a whack to the face at Orient while defender Tommy Elphick and midfielder Gary Dicker have shaken off knocks.
Poyet is set to make changes as he bids to end Brighton's dismal home form - they have not won in front of their own fans in nearly four months.
Adam El-Abd (foot) needs a run-out for the reserves before returning and Colin Hawkins (heel) is a long-term absentee.
Huddersfield midfielder Michael Collins hopes to return to the squad for the trip.
Collins has missed the last two matches after twisting an ankle in training, but he could be back in contention.
Should the Republic of Ireland Under-21 international prove his fitness it will leave manager Lee Clark with several selection dilemmas following the recent arrival of four new players at the Galpharm Stadium.
Australian Dean Heffernan, fellow defender Neal Trotman and striker Nathan Eccleston all made their home debuts for the Terriers in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Carlisle, while centre-half Krystian Pearce was an unused substitute.
Winger Anthony Pilkington returned to Clark's line-up against Carlisle after injury, while Nathan Clarke, Lee Novak, Robbie Simpson and Danny Drinkwater are all pressing for recalls to the starting XI.
