Brighton hope to welcome skipper Gordon Greer back into their side for the visit of MK Dons.
The centre-half has completed a three-match ban and although he is carrying a slight knock, boss Gus Poyet expects him to be fit.
Poyet can hand a debut to striker Fran Sandaza, who arrived from Dundee United last week, while winger Kazenga LuaLua will make his return in Albion colours after rejoining on loan from Newcastle.
Goalkeeper Peter Brezovan is fit again after a wrist injury, although Casper Ankergren is likely to keep his place, while defender Lewis Dunk is back in training after a broken foot.
Midfielder Alan Navarro is the Seagulls' only long-term absentee with a knee ligament injury.
