Brighton have made two changes for this afternoon's Premier League match at Cardiff.

Winger Anthony Knockaert replaces Alireza Jahanbakhsh, who has a slight hamstring strain, on the right wing and Martin Montoya comes in for Bruno at right-back.

Kick-off is at 12.30pm.

Cardiff: Etheridge; Ecuele Manga, Morrison, Bamba, Cunningham; Harris, Gunnarsson, Ralls, J.Murphy; Camarasa; Paterson. Subs: Smithies, Peltier, Bennett, Ward, Decordova-Reid, Damour, Hoilett.

Brighton: Ryan; Montoya, Duffy, Dunk, Bong; Knockaert, Stephens, Kayal, Izquierdo; March; Murray. Subs: Steele, Balogun, Bernardo, Bruno, Bissouma, Andone, Gyokeres.
