Brighton manager Chris Hughton has no new selection problems for the visit of Sheffield Wednesday.

Full-back Gaeten Bong (thigh) is back in training and captain Gordon Greer is available after recovering from a hamstring problem.

Sheffield Wednesday will once again be without striker Fernando Forestieri, who completes a two-game ban.

Defenders Liam Palmer and Joe Bennett are both pushing for recalls, as is midfielder Sam Hutchinson.
