Sam Baldock in contention for Championship title hopefuls Brighton

Brighton striker Sam Baldock could be fit to face former club Bristol City.

Baldock has missed the last six matches with a glute problem but is back in training and may play a part in what Albion hope will be a Championship title party.

Shane Duffy will miss out again after fracturing a metatarsal and is not expected to feature again until next season.

Fellow defender Connor Goldson remains sidelined after being diagnosed with a heart condition.

Bristol City are without Aaron Wilbraham as the veteran striker has been ruled out of the rest of the season with a knee problem.

Midfielder Gary O'Neil is also unlikely to play again in this campaign after picking up a hamstring injury at the start of April.

However, Mark Little showed no reaction to his hamstring concern in the 3-2 victory over Barnsley last weekend, and boss Lee Johnson could name an unchanged side.

The Robins will know before their Saturday evening kick-off whether they need a point to guarantee their Sky Bet Championship status.
