Brighton skipper Andrew Crofts will return to the squad for the home game against Carlisle.

The Welsh midfielder missed Easter Monday's 2-0 defeat at Hartlepool due to family reasons and is set to go straight back into the starting line-up.

Defender Marcos Painter is awaiting the results of a visit to a specialist to determine the extent of his knee injury so Gavin Hoyte deputises at left-back.

Striker Glenn Murray serves the second game of his two-match ban so Plymouth loanee Ashley Barnes keeps his place in attack.

Utility-man Gary Hart is still out with a back injury although he will return to training next week.

Goalkeeper Michel Kuipers (broken finger) and defender Colin Hawkins (heel) are still out.

Carlisle defender David Raven could make his first appearance since October.

The 25-year-old has been sidelined for six months due to a hip injury, but came through his first 90 minutes for the reserves in midweek unscathed.

Fellow defenders Danny Livesey (hamstring) and Peter Murphy (knock) are still struggling and manager Greg Abbott will again be without Kevan Hurst (knee), Joe Anyinsah (double hernia) and Andy Cook (foot).

Marc Bridge-Wilkinson and Matty Robson have both been receiving treatment for respective injuries and are not expected to feature.

The Cumbrians will be looking to bounce back after losing for the first time in five league matches at Charlton on Monday in their bid to finish the season in the top half of the table.
