Ulloa back for Seagulls

Brighton's top scorer Leonardo Ulloa returns from a three-match ban for the visit of Sheffield Wednesday.

The Argentinian, who was sent off at Reading a fortnight ago, will go straight into the starting line-up with fellow strikers Craig Mackail-Smith (Achilles) and Will Hoskins (knee) still injured.

Boss Oscar Garcia is also light in midfield with Kemy Agustien (hamstring) and Liam Bridcutt (hernia) doubtful and Andrea Orlandi (knee) out.

Fit-again right-back Bruno (hamstring) was drafted into the midfield at Ipswich on Saturday and could keep his place while winger Kazenga LuaLua, who was a substitute in the 2-0 defeat to rest a knee injury, is set to start against the Owls.

On-loan Hull striker Matty Fryatt is expected to make his first start for Sheffield Wednesday.

Fryatt stepped off the substitutes' bench in the weekend defeat to Doncaster after joining the club on Friday and boss Dave Jones has hinted the former Leicester forward could be in his starting XI.

Right-back Jordan Spence has returned to parent club West Ham following the end of his loan spell, so Liam Palmer is likely to drop back to fill the gap.

Another right-back, Lewis Buxton (knee), has returned to training following injury, but is likely to start on the bench and striker Chris Maguire (toe) is also hoping to return to contention. Skipper Anthony Gardner (Achilles) remains a long-term absentee.
