Blackburn v Brighton preview

Rovers were already without eight players for Tuesday night’s loss to Brentford and Marshall was forced off in the second half with a gash on his leg, but it is hoped he can make the Seagulls clash.
Doneil Henry (hamstring) will not play again this season so he joins Jason Lowe (foot) and Shane Duffy (knee) as players whose campaigns have been prematurely ended by injury.
Full-back Markus Olsson (hamstring) will be assessed again but was not close to making Tuesday’s contest and Craig Conway (hamstring), David Dunn (calf), Josh King (hamstring) and Grant Hanley (calf) will all hope to return after the international break.
Greg Halford continues to deputise at centre-half for Brighton as Lewis Dunk completes a two-match ban.
The versatile Nottingham Forest loanee stepped in at Millwall on Tuesday night and helped the Seagulls to a clean sheet in a 0-0 draw.
Sam Baldock, Andrew Crofts (both knee), Kemy Agustien (thigh) and Solly March (calf) remain on the sidelines.
Emmanuel Ledesma’s loan spell from Middlesbrough ends after the game with boss Chris Hughton yet to decide whether to extend it, with the Argentinian winger having started just one match so far.
