Oscar to recall big guns

Brighton boss Oscar Garcia is likely to shuffle his pack ahead of Saturday's clash with Derby.

The Seagulls made seven changes ahead of the Capital One Cup defeat to Newport in midweek, and the manager is expected to recall many of the players who took on Leeds last weekend.

Garcia is waiting to hear whether the club's appeal over the red card picked up by Inigo Calderon in midweek is successful.

If the decision is upheld,Calderon will serve a three-match ban for his challenge on Newport's Byron Anthony, which inflicted a double leg fracture.

Derby do not expect to report any new problems.

Rams boss Nigel Clough made six changes in midweek for the Capital One Cup tie against Oldham. Adam Smith, John Eustace, Paul Coutts, Ben Davies, Michael Jacobs and Conor Sammon came into the team at Boundary Park, with Jacobs scoring in the 1-0 win.

How many of them keep their place in the side remains to be seen with Kieron Freeman, Craig Bryson, Will Hughes, Johnny Russell, Chris Martin and Jamie Ward, who was given the night off against the Latics, all pushing to regain their places.

Defenders Mark O'Brien and Shaun Barker remain unavailable as they continue their long-term rehabilitation from knee injuries.
