Brighton & Hove Albion Vs Tranmere Rovers, Sat 27 Mar 2010

Next Story

Brighton will have a host of new faces on show when they entertain Tranmere.

Former Aston Villa midfielder Lee Hendrie is in line for his debut after joining on loan from Derby and striker Ashley Barnes will also be added to the squad following his switch from Plymouth.

Seagulls fans should also get a first glimpse of Uruguayan midfielder Diego Arismendi, who arrived on loan from Stoke three weeks ago but suffered a thigh injury in his first training session.

Goalkeeper Danny Naisbitt should be among the subs having signed from non-league Histon as cover for Peter Brezovan with regular number one Michel Kuipers out for the season with a broken finger.

Striker Chris Holroyd is fit after a hamstring injury and will replace Nicky Forster on the bench after the veteran was loaned to Charlton.

Kazenga LuaLua (hamstring) and Colin Hawkins (heel) are still sidelined.

Tranmere boss Les Parry has also been boosted by the arrival of some new signings.

Rookie Chelsea defender Ben Gordon has joined Rovers a one-month loan deal and Leeds winger Andy Robinson has signed on loan until the end of the season.

West Brom midfielder Joss Labadie has also signed on loan until the end of the season.

Gordon seems certain to be handed a starting role as left-backs Zoumana Bakayogo and Aaron Cresswell are both suspended.

Parry said: "Ben is a talented defender with a lot of potential and his signing means we don't have to play someone out of position."

On-loan Manchester City defender Shaleum Logan is missing with a hernia and skipper Ian Thomas-Moore is doubtful with a knee problem.
