Brighton striker Fran Sandaza is rated 50-50 to return for the visit of Yeovil.

The Spaniard has missed the last two matches with a thigh strain but has this week returned to full training and could be added to the squad.

Midfielder Alan Navarro remains the only definite absentee as he continues his recovery from a ruptured cruciate ligament.

Boss Gus Poyet could therefore stick with the starting XI which thumped Charlton 4-0 at The Valley last weekend.

Fit-again defender Gordon Greer made only his second start of the season in south London and is likely to keep his place alongside Adam El-Abd at the back.

The Seagulls are three points clear at the top on the back of a nine-match unbeaten run.

Yeovil manager Terry Skiverton could hand Jean-Paul Kalala a start for the trip to league leaders Brighton.

Kalala has been suffering with a knee injury since mid-September and was named on the substitute's bench in the defeat to Sheffield Wednesday.

Skiverton could be tempted to include the midfielder in his starting line-up at the Withdean in an attempt to return to winning ways.

Stefan Stam, who has been made available for loan by Skiverton, could be included in the Glovers squad if he recovers from a knock while on-loan Manchester United striker Cameron Stewart has left the club to return to Old Trafford.

Strikers Luke Freeman and Craig Calver are both pushing for starts as Skiverton looks for more options up front.
