Glenn Murray will be fit for Brighton's televised clash with south-coast rivals Bournemouth.
The striker has shrugged off the hip injury he suffered during last weekend's 1-1 draw at Tranmere and should keep his place.
Centre-half Adam El-Abd returns after a one-match ban but faces competition from youngster Lewis Dunk, who deputised impressively at Prenton Park, and Gordon Greer.
Former Swindon defender Greer is finally pushing to be involved after two suspensions, the birth of his daughter and a calf injury disrupted his season.
Winger Kazenga LuaLua dropped to the bench last Saturday to rest his ongoing hamstring problem and could return to the starting line-up.
Midfielder Alan Navarro is therefore the only injury absentee as he continues his recovery from a ruptured cruciate ligament.
Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has a defensive decision to make ahead of the game.
Right-back Adam Smith was dismissed in last week's defeat at Southampton and must serve a one-match ban.
Smith's absence leaves Howe choosing between Stephen Purches, who is back in the frame after back spasms, or veteran Lee Bradbury.
Harry Arter has returned to light training after a groin injury but the game will come too soon for him, while Tim Stephenson is back in training after knee trouble, but again he will not feature at the Withdean.
Mark Molesley (foot) and Steve Lovell (ankle) remain long-term absentees.
The Cherries travel along the south coast in third position, but will be searching for an improvement in their away form having suffered three defeats on the road already this term.
