Diego Arismendi will have to wait a little longer to make his Brighton debut after being ruled out of the visit of Swindon.

The Uruguay midfielder, who is on loan from Stoke until the end of the season, has been unable to train since picking up a thigh strain which forced him to miss Monday night's draw at Colchester.

But winger Kazenga LuaLua will be available after extending his loan spell from Newcastle until the end of the season.

That means boss Gus Poyet can name the same side which stretched their unbeaten run to four matches against the Us.

Adam Virgo serves the final match of his four-game ban and fellow defender Colin Hawkins is still out with an Achilles injury.

Former Swindon keeper Peter Brezovan continues in goal after Michel Kuipers was ruled out for the rest of the season with a broken finger.

Robins boss Danny Wilson could hand an immediate debut to new loan signing Stephen Darby.

Darby arrived at the club from Liverpool on loan for the rest of the season on Thursday and could go straight into the starting XI at right-back should Kevin Amankwaah not shake off a strain sustained in the game against MK Dons last time out.

Captain Gordon Greer is struggling with an ankle knock and may miss out, while long-term absentee Alan O'Brien is still weeks away from a return with his hamstring injury.

Callum Kennedy (pelvis) and Kurt Hammonds (knee) are also long-term casualties for sixth-placed Town, who are looking to bounce back from two consecutive league defeats.
