Brighton host Leyton Orient without Inigo Calderon on New Year's Day.

The Spanish defender was shown a red card for a crunching tackle on midfielder Therry Racon as the Seagulls drew 1-1 with Charlton.

Alan Navarro is a long-term injury absentee as he recovers from serious cruciate ligament damage sustained in the Carling Cup clash with Northampton.

The influential midfielder will not be able to play any part in Brighton's npower League One campaign until at least mid-February.

Young striker Chris Holroyd has returned to the club following a successful loan spell at Stevenage where he scored six goals in 12 appearances. He was an unused substitute in the draw with the Addicks and may continue on the bench.

Gus Poyet's side are yet to be beaten in the league at the Withdean Stadium this season.

Orient will travel without Terrell Forbes.

The defender picked up a red card in the FA Cup match against Droylsden and will not make the trip to the Withdean Stadium.

Defender Andrew Whing is ineligible for the match as he is on-loan from the Seagulls.

However, defender Ben Chorley returns from suspension, while midfielders Dean Cox, Adam Chambers and goalkeeper Jamie Jones return after illness, calf and hernia problems respectively.

The Os have not played a league match since their 2-1 victory over Tranmere and the goalscorers from that encounter, striker Scott McGleish and Irish midfielder Stephen Dawson, should start.

Striker Alex Revell is the club's top scorer, with eight league goals this season, and will lead the line against Gus Poyet's table toppers.
