Clarets could pick Mee

Burnley will have Ben Mee available when they entertain Brighton at Turf Moor.

The Clarets did not have a game this weekend and instead spent some time in Spain last week with defender Mee now considered fully-fit from a thigh problem.

However, winger Ross Wallace will be given a little more time to recover from his knee injury, despite initially targeting a return this month. Wallace will play in a behind-closed-doors friendly this week in the next stage of his comeback instead.

Forward Ashley Barnes is still waiting to make his first start since arriving at Turf Moor, but it is unlikely to come against his former employers given the form of strike-partners Sam Vokes and Danny Ings.

Will Buckley will again be missing from the Brighton squad.

Winger Buckley has been sidelined since suffering a hamstring injury at Blackpool on December 29 and is not yet ready to return.

Midfielder Andrew Crofts (knee) and strikers Craig Mackail-Smith (Achilles) and Will Hoskins (knee) are still out - although the latter pair are back in training after long-term absences.

Goalkeeper Tomasz Kuszczak, defenders Bruno, Gordon Greer and Stephen Ward, midfielder David Lopez and striker Leonardo Ulloa return after they were rested against Port Vale in the FA Cup.
