Goalkeeper Kuszczak and midfielder Bridcutt missed Saturday's 2-2 draw at Nottingham Forest through illness and have now fully recovered, while defender El-Abd is available again after a two-game suspension.
Kuszczak will replace Casper Ankergren in goal after his error gifted Forest their late equaliser.
Inigo Calderon continues at right-back as fellow Spaniard Bruno is still sidelined due to a calf muscle problem, with Brighton hopeful he will be fit in about a week.
Strikers Craig Mackail-Smith (Achilles) and Will Hoskins (knee) are also injured and Ashley Barnes is still suspended following his red card for tripping the referee at Bolton last month.
