Brighton boss Gus Poyet will be boosted by the return of striker Glenn Murray for the visit of Exeter.

The 26-year-old missed Tuesday night's superb 2-1 win over promotion-chasing Charlton due to illness but has recovered and is set to go back into the side.

Midfielder Gary Dicker is set to keep his place in the side despite suffering with a head injury.

Dicker picked up a cut in the draw at Leeds last weekend but played against Charlton wearing a bandage and should be fit to face the Grecians.

Spaniard Inigo Calderon reported a sore hamstring after his goalscoring display in midweek but is likely to recover fully.

However, defender Adam Virgo will be absent once again as he serves the second instalment of a four-match ban following his dismissal against Leeds.

Exeter should be able to welcome back striker Marcus Stewart.

Stewart was ruled out of last Saturday`s disappointing 1-0 home defeat to basement side Stockport with a hamstring injury he picked up in the recent loss at Millwall.

But the veteran frontman has been back in training for the past week and said: "I am fine and will be fit for the weekend."

Stewart's return will be a big boost for City boss Paul Tisdale, who is without the services of fellow forwards Barry Corr and Adam Stansfield.

Corr is currently serving a five-match ban after picking up three red cards this season, while Stansfield is sidelined with a knee injury.

City slipped to third from bottom in League One following the postponement of Tuesday's Westcountry derby at home to Bristol Rovers.
