Slade has competition for places on the wings after signing Arron Davies on-loan from Nottingham Forest until January.
Davies is vying for a first-team shirt with Elliott Bennett, bought from Wolves last month, and Dean Cox, who replaced Davies in the 1-0 triumph over Wycombe.
Slade told the Brighton Argus: "Isn't it nice when you have got Coxy, Arron and Bennett on the other side?
"Those three I think are terrific. They give us a different dimension and we can change things around. It gives the opposition something to think about."
