Missing Players and team news:
Dan Burn was forced off at the break in Brighton’s 2-1 win at Southampton last weekend but could be involved here. Bernardo is on standby for a rare start if Burn is not fit to start. Otherwise, Graham Potter may name the same XI that started last week’s victory with Florin Andone, Solly March, Adam Webster, Tariq Lamptey and Aaron Connolly on the sidelines. Steve Bruce has no further injury concerns to contend with, but is without key attacking trio Allan Saint-Maximin, Miguel Almiron and Callum Wilson until next month. Bruce could elect to go for a 4-3-3 once more this weekend, with Jacob Murphy potentially starting in place of Matt Ritchie as the focal point in attack after impressing from the bench against Aston Villa.
