Adam El-Abd and Jamie Smith are pushing to return to the Brighton squad for the FA Cup replay against FC United.

Centre-half El-Abd has been sidelined since he suffered a nasty gash to his thigh against Southampton a fortnight ago and midfielder Smith sprained his ankle in training last week.

But both players have resumed training and could travel to Gigg Lane as the Seagulls attempt to book a south-coast derby clash with Portsmouth in round three.

West Brom loanee Chris Wood is ineligible so Glenn Murray is likely to start alongside Ashley Barnes is attack again.

Goalkeeper Casper Ankergren is expected to be rested once more with Peter Brezovan having played in all Brighton's cup matches so far.

Fringe players Lewis Dunk, Gary Hart, Cristian Baz and assistant boss Mauricio Taricco are all in line for run-outs.
