Brighton can welcome right-back Bruno Saltor back into their side for the trip to Derby.

The Spaniard has missed Albion's last two matches, a defeat by Birmingham and a draw with lowly Ipswich, due to a groin problem but is now back in full training.

However, midfielder Andrew Crofts remains a doubt with a hamstring problem while top scorer Craig Mackail-Smith (hamstring) and former Spain international Vicente (thigh) are still missing.

Will Buckley is expected to return to the starting line-up after his heroics as a substitute against Paul Jewell's side on Tuesday night.

The winger was forced to start on the bench due to a tight hamstring but came on in the second half to score Brighton's equaliser and almost set up a late winner.

Meanwhile, Derby manager Nigel Clough has a selection headache in attack ahead of the clash.

Top scorer Jamie Ward continues to be sidelined with a hamstring injury, leaving Clough with a number of possible options in the final third.

Theo Robinson netted the opener in Wednesday's 2-2 draw at Middlesbrough in his first league start this season and will be eager to keep his place.

But Conor Sammon may be restored to the starting XI after having a hand in Paul Coutts' late equaliser at the Riverside. Nathan Tyson started out wide in an attacking three against Tony Mowbray's side, leaving Clough with a further option to ponder.

Midfielder Jeff Hendrick could drop out after being substituted immediately after conceding possession to allow the hosts to score their second goal in midweek.
