Central defender Fabricio Coloccini (groin) and midfielder Ryan Taylor (calf) have both been ruled out, meaning caretaker boss Chris Hughton will have to make changes.

In addition, midfielder Joey Barton could be sidelined for several weeks with the ankle problem which has kept him out of the last two games.

However, full-back Danny Simpson could return from his ankle injury and Jonas Gutierrez is available after six matches out with a hamstring strain, while Danny Guthrie has completed his suspension.

Geremi has recovered from the illness which prevented his participation at the weekend, but Shola Ameobi (foot) is expected to sit out for two more months.
