Brighton hope to welcome skipper Gordon Greer back into their side for the visit of MK Dons.

The centre-half has completed a three-match ban and although he is carrying a slight knock, boss Gus Poyet expects him to be fit.

Poyet can hand a debut to striker Fran Sandaza, who arrived from Dundee United last week, while winger Kazenga LuaLua will make his return in Albion colours after rejoining on loan from Newcastle.

Goalkeeper Peter Brezovan is fit again after a wrist injury, although Casper Ankergren is likely to keep his place, while defender Lewis Dunk is back in training after a broken foot.

Former Dons midfielder Alan Navarro is the Seagulls' only long-term absentee with a knee ligament injury.

Jermaine Easter will captain the Dons.

Striker Easter will wear the armband as regular skipper Dean Lewington serves a one-match ban following his red card against Hartlepool last weekend.

Manager Karl Robinson has troubles at full-back as joining left-back Lewington on the sidelines is right-back Danny Woodards.

Woodards pulled his hamstring against Pools and is out, as is another option Luke Howell (dead leg), so youngster Adam Chicksen and midfielder Mark Carrington look set to fill the full-back roles.

Vice captain Aaron Wilbraham remains sidelined with his back injury and defender Gary Mackenzie is still waiting for his debut as he recovers from an injury sustained in the summer.

Jude Stirling also misses out as he rests his groin injury and Pele has left the club after his deal came to an end.

Stephen Gleeson - who has also been used at right-back this season - is still absent as he recovers from a muscle injury.
