Trio back for Seagulls

Tue, 21 Feb 12:52:37 2012

Matt Sparrow, Joe Mattock and Gonzalo Jara Reyes return to the Brighton squad for the trip to Hull.

Midfielder Sparrow has completed a three-match ban after he was sent off against Leicester earlier this month.

On-loan full-backs Mattock and Reyes missed Sunday's 6-1 FA Cup defeat at Liverpool as they were cup-tied.

Liam Bridcutt, who scored two own-goals at Anfield, is expected to shake off a minor back knock to continue in central midfield.

Defender Tommy Elphick remains sidelined with an Achilles injury and midfielder Gary Dicker is still recovering from a broken leg but the Seagulls have an otherwise fully-fit squad.

Striker Craig Mackail-Smith is pushing for a recall after dropping to the bench against the Reds.
