Poyet must decide whether to stick with Casper Ankergren or recall regular number one Tomasz Kuszczak after his recovery from an elbow injury.
Ankergren kept a clean sheet on his first-team return at Middlesbrough on Saturday, leaving his manager with food for thought.
Wingers Kazenga LuaLua and Will Buckley (both hamstring) are also closing in on a return to the squad and could be named among the substitutes.
Right-back Bruno is also recovering well from a calf problem but Tuesday's match is expected to come too soon for him.
The Seagulls are unbeaten in their last five league matches and are two points clear of the chasing pack in the play-off places.
