Football - As you were for Brighton

Brighton have no new injury worries for the play-off semi-final second leg against Crystal Palace at the Amex Stadium.

Full-back Bruno remains sidelined with a calf problem and strike duo Craig Mackail-Smith (Achilles) and Will Hoskins (knee) are long-term absentees.

But the Seagulls came through Friday night's goalless draw in the first leg at Selhurst Park unscathed.

Midfielder Andrea Orlandi was withdrawn towards the end in south London but manager Gus Poyet confirmed afterwards that was merely due to tiredness.

With so little time to recover between the games Poyet says he will freshen up his line-up so the likes of midfielders Vicente and Andrew Crofts, winger Kazenga LuaLua and striker Ashley Barnes will be in contention to start.
