Options for Poyet
Brighton boss Gus Poyet once again has a virtually full-strength squad to choose from for the visit of Oldham.
Midfielder Alan Navarro is the only injury absentee as he continues his recovery from a ruptured cruciate ligament.
Bulgarian midfielder Radostin Kishishev sat out Tuesday night's win at Plymouth as a precaution after picking up a thigh knock at Carlisle on Saturday but he is now fit.
Winger Kazenga LuaLua was also rested in midweek and is in line for a return to the starting line-up.
Skipper Gordon Greer and striker Gary Hart will push to be involved after missing out completely at Home Park.
Frontman Chris Holroyd is joining League Two side Stevenage on a three-month loan.
Oldham boss Paul Dickov is waiting on the fitness of striker Warren Feeney.
The Northern Ireland international turned his ankle in the dying seconds of last Saturday's 2-1 home win against Bournemouth.
If Feeney, who is undergoing treatment, is ruled out then Dean Kelly and Lewis Alessandra will battle it out to replace him in the starting line-up.
Dickov is not expected to make any other changes following the victory against Bournemouth.
Meanwhile, first-year professionals Djeny Bembo-Leta (fractured fibula and damaged ankle ligaments) and Phil McGrath (cruciate and cartilage) have had operations and will therefore remain sidelined.
Striker Ryan Brooke and goalkeeper Greg Fleming are set to return to full training before the end of the month as they recover from injuries.
Sandaza sends Brighton top
Spanish striker Francisco Sandaza came off the bench to grab the winner as in-form Brighton beat Oldham 2-1.
Striker Lewis Alessandra struck for his first goal of the season to put Oldham in front with a well placed shot following a quick break by Chris Taylor after 30 minutes.
Brighton forward Ashley Barnes spurned three chances and also struck the post before levelling a minute from the break by powerfully heading in a corner from Elliott Bennett.
Sandaza, recently released by Dundee United, then settled the issue in the fifth minute of stoppage time after a Bennett corner was headed back in by Inigo Calderon.
Barnes should have hit the target after only 10 minutes when put through by Gary Dicker, but keeper Dean Brill produced a stunning save diving to his right.
Brill denied the Seagulls again three minutes later when he thwarted Barnes after winger Kazenga Lua Lua's excellent cross.
Oldham made a bright start to the second half and Alessandra had a shot saved by Brighton keeper Casper Ankergren before Barnes' effort was deflected over the bar at the other end.
"Will David Moyes be able to turn it around at Ma..."
