Ipswich will be without injured striker Brett Pitman and centre-back Adam Webster for the visit of Brighton.

Josh Emmanuel is set to take Webster’s place, while Grant Ward is fit and Johnny Williams is back in training.

The Seagulls will be without suspended left-back Gaetan Bong as they chase a fourth successive league win.

Sebastien Pocognoli or Robert Hunt could replace the Cameroonian, but defender Liam Rosenior (ankle) and winger Kazenga LuaLua (knee) are out.
