Four Brighton players are set to miss Saturday's Premier League match at Cardiff City.

Pascal Gross and Davy Propper have missed the last few games through ankle injuries and back-up keeper David Button has been unavailable for the last two matches with a knee injury.

Iranian winger Alireza Jahanabakhsh is also unlikely to be available after limping off towards the end of Saturday's match at Everton, with a slight hamstring strain.

Brighton boss Chris Hughton said: "The two that have been unavailable the last few games, Pascal Gross and Davy Propper, will still miss out for the weekend.

"And (Alireza) Jahanbakhsh picked up a very slight strain and we were hopeful he would train this week. At the moment he hasn't and probably likely to miss out.

"David Button as well has a slight knee problem but is very close."
