The Chelsea youngster missed last weekend's impressive victory against Tranmere with an Achilles injury, but is back in contention to face the Seagulls.

Boss Greg Abbott must decide whether to recall Taiwo or stick with the experienced duo of Paul Thirlwell and Graham Kavanagh, who impressed against Rovers.

Marc Bridge-Wilkinson (back) is also fully fit after playing for the reserve team in midweek, but the former Port Vale midfielder is likely to be among the substitutes.

Defender Richard Keogh will play no part as he will be out for two to three weeks with an ankle injury.

Long-term absentee Simon Lakeland is also unavailable, but there was some good news for the youngster this week when he had a brace removed from his knee.
