Baldock set for Brighton bow

Sam Baldock could be handed his Brighton debut against Charlton.

The striker joined Albion on a four-year contract from Bristol City earlier this week to become manager Sami Hyypia's 11th new signing.

Winger Kazenga LuaLua could miss out after suffering an ankle injury against Swindon during the Capital One Cup in midweek, while former Charlton midfielder Dale Stephens is still sidelined by an ankle problem.

David Stockdale, Gordon Greer, Danny Holla and Craig Mackail-Smith were rested for the 4-2 win over the Robins but should return.

Charlton will check on goalkeeper Stephen Henderson, who has missed the last three matches with a hamstring injury.

Henderson is close to being fit for the clash but youngster Nick Pope remains on standby should the former West Ham keeper miss out.

Right-back Chris Solly is set to return having sat out the midweek cup defeat by Derby to rest his troublesome knee.

Boss Bob Peeters made six changes for the trip to the iPro Stadium so Johann Berg Gudmundsson, Tal Ben-Haim, Yoni Buyens, Rhoys Wiggins and Igor Vetokele could also be back in the starting line-up.
