Brighton wait on fitness of Sam Baldock and Bruno

Brighton head into Tuesday night's Sky Bet Championship clash with Cardiff knowing that victory would put them top of the table.

Manager Chris Hughton will check on the fitness of striker Sam Baldock (calf) and Bruno, who both missed Friday's 2-1 win over Sheffield Wednesday.

While forward Glenn Murray, who had scored 15 goals for the Seagulls this season, was sent off in that clash and serves a one-match ban.

Gaetan Bong (knee) will be unavailable again and Liam Rosenior is also ruled out as he continues his recovery from an ankle injury.

Rhys Healey is pushing for a start after scoring his first Cardiff goal in their 1-0 win over Burton on Saturday.

It was just the striker's second substitute appearance for the club having scored six goals on loan at Newport this season.

Bruno Manga will return from the African Nations Cup after Gabon were knocked out on Monday but is unlikely to feature a day later.

The Bluebirds head to Cardiff after the initial game was called off in December.
