Sparrow: Faces late fitness test

Sparrow: Faces late fitness test

Inigo Calderon has been passed fit for Brighton's home clash with Exeter.

The Spanish full-back suffered a gashed foot during Saturday's 3-0 win at Peterborough but managed to complete the 90 minutes and will be available again.

Midfielder Matt Sparrow will have a late fitness check on the groin injury which kept him out at the weekend, while striker Fran Sandaza is set to miss out after suffering a recurrence of a thigh problem.

Alan Navarro is the only long-term absentee at the Withdean, with the midfielder targeting a return to action in February following a cruciate injury.

Saturday's success at Posh has left Brighton eight points clear at the top of the table.

Meanwhile, Exeter boss Peter Tisdale is likely to be without the services of striker John O'Flynn for the clash.

O'Flynn was withdrawn after 12 minutes of the 4-2 defeat against Brentford with a groin injury and is unlikely to make a recovery in time.

Experienced front-man Jamie Cureton could to return to the starting line-up as a replacement following his impressive substitute appearance against the Bees, which saw him find the net twice.

Club captain Richard Logan should continue in attack after returning to action after a recent back injury, while Daniel Nardiello is seeking help from a specialist for the hamstring injury that has hampered his season so far.

The Grecians will be looking for a return to winning ways following two consecutive league defeats but will find it tough against a Brighton side unbeaten in 11 games with eight wins and three draws.
