The Seagulls' player of the season has missed the last three games with an ankle injury but Dale Stephens is close to returning.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference, Brighton boss Chris Hughton said: "Pascal is still out. Dale is close, very close and we will make a decision.

"Apart from those two, everybody is fit and available."
