Brighton V Blackpool - view commentary, squad, and statistics of the game live.

Duo boost Seagulls

Matt Upson and Will Buckley could return to the Brighton squad for the visit of Blackpool.

Former England defender Upson is in contention despite missing Friday's 1-1 draw at Huddersfield with knee and ankle niggles, and winger Buckley is fit after a hamstring injury.

Striker Will Hoskins is also available to boss Oscar Garcia having recovered from a long-term knee injury.

Skipper Gordon Greer played on Friday despite an illness and should continue at the back but midfielder Andrea Orlandi (thigh) is set to miss out again.

Relegation-threatened Blackpool will once again be without a number of players.

Striker Ricardo Fuller and defender Kirk Broadfoot (both knee) are sidelined as is forward Robert Earnshaw (calf).

Jack Robinson was replaced just before half-time in the 1-0 home loss to Burnley on Friday and he will be assessed.

Caretaker boss Barry Ferguson suffered from cramp towards the end of the game but is expected to start again with Blackpool now occupying the final spot in the relegation zone.
