Brighton v Oldham preview

Brighton boss Gus Poyet once again has a virtually full-strength squad to choose from for the visit of Oldham.
Midfielder Alan Navarro is the only injury absentee as he continues his recovery from a ruptured cruciate ligament.
Bulgarian midfielder Radostin Kishishev sat out Tuesday night’s win at Plymouth as a precaution after picking up a thigh knock at Carlisle on Saturday but he is now fit.
Winger Kazenga LuaLua was also rested in midweek and is in line for a return to the starting line-up.
Skipper Gordon Greer and striker Gary Hart will push to be involved after missing out completely at Home Park.
Frontman Chris Holroyd is joining League Two side Stevenage on a three-month loan.
Oldham boss Paul Dickov is waiting on the fitness of striker Warren Feeney.
The Northern Ireland international turned his ankle in the dying seconds of last Saturday’s 2-1 home win against Bournemouth.
If Feeney, who is undergoing treatment, is ruled out then Dean Kelly and Lewis Alessandra will battle it out to replace him in the starting line-up.
Dickov is not expected to make any other changes following the victory against Bournemouth.
Meanwhile, first-year professionals Djeny Bembo-Leta (fractured fibula and damaged ankle ligaments) and Phil McGrath (cruciate and cartilage) have had operations and will therefore remain sidelined.
Striker Ryan Brooke and goalkeeper Greg Fleming are set to return to full training before the end of the month as they recover from injuries.
