Chris Hughton considering making changes to his Brighton side against QPR

Chris Hughton has Solly March and Oliver Norwood pushing for starts against QPR as the Brighton manager weighs up how best to keep his squad fresh across the festive schedule.

The second-placed Seagulls are unbeaten in their last 16 Sky Bet Championship games but with the match against Rangers the first of four in 12 days, Hughton may be tempted to rotate.

Bournemouth loanee Glenn Murray will bid to extend his excellent December run of three goals in three games, with his Brighton tally now up to 14 for the campaign.

Veteran right-back Bruno should make his 71st consecutive league start as the former Valencia defender continues to belie his 36 years.

Jamie Mackie could return to the QPR starting XI after ending an injury-riddled 18 month spell.

The Scotland forward made his first appearance of the season off the bench in the 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa, having finally recovered from ankle ligament damage.

Academy graduate Olamide Shodipo will be gunning to force his way into Rangers' starting ranks as well.

Midfielder Jordan Cousins remains a doubt after missing the Villa loss with a hamstring problem.
