Brighton v Hull

Will Buckley is set to make his first start of 2014 having been sidelined with a hamstring injury since December 29. He returned to action as a second-half substitute against Leeds in midweek. Jake Forster-Caskey was an unused substitute after overcoming a similar problem and he is also in contention to make the starting line-up. Keith Andrews (hamstring), Andrew Crofts (knee), Will Hoskins (knee) and Craig Mackail-Smith (Achilles) are all expected to watch from the sidelines.

Sone Aluko is in line for his first start in four months, having made two substitute appearances in the league since returning from an Achilles injury. He is expected to start up front with Shane Long and Nikica Jelavic cup-tied. Paul McShane is out for six months with an ankle injury, goalkeeper Allan McGregor has completed a three-game ban and the likes of George Boyd, Yannick Sagbo, Robert Koren, Abdoulaye Faye and Robbie Brady will all be hoping to return to the starting XI.

Top scorers: Leonardo Ulloa (Brighton) 8; Matt Fryatt (Hull) 7

Referee: Lee Probert (Wiltshire)

Our verdict: Brighton 1 Hull 1
