Duo set for Seagulls return

Brighton boss Oscar Garcia expects to have Rohan Ince (cramp) and Matt Upson (shoulder) back for the visit of basement side Barnsley.

Garcia must decide whether to recall Bruno Saltor, who missed Saturday's 1-1 draw at Bournemouth through suspension, or stick with fellow Spaniard Inigo Calderon at right-back.

Striker Leo Ulloa is on the brink of a return from a foot injury but the midweek clash is likely to come too soon for him.

Andrea Orlandi is again set to feature on the bench after he made his first appearance in three months at the weekend but Craig Mackail-Smith (Achilles) and Will Hoskins (knee) remain long-term absentees.

Barnsley caretaker-boss Micky Mellon could opt to make changes for his first game in charge.

The Reds, who sacked David Flitcroft after the weekend defeat to Birmingham, are without a win in five league matches and currently sit bottom of the table.

Striker Chris O'Grady remains sidelined with the calf injury that has ruled him out of the last two games and goalkeeper Luke Steele is in rehabilitation following a back problem.

Recent loan signing Marcus Tudgay is hoping to resume alongside Marcus Pedersen up front, while on-loan defender Peter Ramage (thigh) could feature after returning to the bench on Saturday.
