Seb Pocognoli to miss out for Brighton

Brighton are missing left-back Seb Pocognoli for Cardiff's visit to the south coast.

Pocognoli, who is on loan from West Brom, continues to be ruled out with the unspecified injury that prevented him from playing in the 3-0 victory over QPR.

The fixture has come too early for Beram Kayal as he recovers from ankle surgery, but the home clash with MK Dons on January 7 has been pencilled in for his comeback.

Liam Rosenior continues to be sidelined by an ankle problem.

Cardiff defender Lee Peltier has been ruled out with a thigh problem.

Peltier was forced off during the 2-2 draw at Brentford on Boxing Day and Jazz Richards is a contender to replace him at right-back.

Richards has not played since Bluebirds boss Neil Warnock was appointed manager at the start of October because of a long-standing foot injury.

Anthony Pilkington could also return after being rested at Brentford.
