Paul Watson, Simon Morgan and Gary Hart are all suspended for having picked up 5 bookings each so far this Season. There will be some tough selection decisions to be made by PT. Adam Virgo along with the rest of the side hardly shone in the game vs Brentford, should he be thrown into the deep end again? If he doesn't start will Pethick or even Rogers play at Centre back? If Pethick plays at Centre back who replaces Watson at Right Back? Steve Melton, perhaps?
It seems likely that new signing David Lee will make his first appearance for the Seagulls in place of Gary Hart.
Meanwhile the proposed three month loan of Junior Lewis from Leicester, planned to start on 8th February, may now be under threat due to an injury crisis at his current club Leicester.
