Lewis Dunk banned for Brighton

Brighton will be without Lewis Dunk through suspension when they host MK Dons in the FA Cup.

Dunk starts a two-match ban for collecting 10 yellow cards this season so Connor Goldson will step in at centre-half.

Boss Chris Hughton will rotate his squad with Niki Maenpaa set to replace David Stockdale in goal while Uwe Huenemeier, Steve Sidwell and Jamie Murphy are in line for run-outs.

Midfielder Beram Kayal could make his return from an ankle injury but defender Liam Rosenior remains sidelined.

Right-back George Baldock is set to return to the MK Dons starting line-up after missing the last three games due to a hamstring strain.

Darren Potter is set to continue up front following confirmation this week that Samir Carruthers has joined Sheffield United on a permanent deal.

And options for boss Robbie Neilson are minimised following the recent departures of loan pair Ryan Colclough and George C Williams.

Dean Bowditch faces at least four more games on the sidelines with a calf injury while Scott Wootton remains a long-term absentee.
