Matt Sparrow returns to the Brighton squad for the visit of Reading. Sparrow has completed a two-match ban after he was sent off in the 1-1 draw at Nottingham Forest last month. But fellow midfielder Liam Bridcutt remains suspended for collecting 10 yellow cards this season. The Seagulls have no new injury worries following Saturday's 1-0 defeat at Burnley, but youngster Abdul Razak has now gone back to Manchester City. Razak's loan spell was cut short after midfielder Gary Dicker proved his fitness by playing the full 90 minutes at Turf Moor having recovered from a broken leg. Centre-half Tommy Elphick remains the only long-term absentee having not figured all season due to an Achilles injury.
Reading will be without midfielder Jem Karacan for their trip to the Amex Stadium. Karacan was the victim of two hefty challenges during the 2-0 victory over Leeds on Good Friday and hobbled out of that match before half-time. The Turk has since undergone an X-ray which has revealed a broken ankle, meaning Karacan will be sidelined for the remainder of the campaign. Striker Benik Afobe missed the clash with the Whites with a minor knock but could return to contention, although midfielder Jay Tabb is set to miss out with a rib injury. Adam le Fondre will be hoping for a recall to the starting XI after coming off the bench to notch both goals in the success against Leeds, but he will be pushed to oust either Noel Hunt or Jason Roberts up top. Joseph Mills is working his way back to full fitness following a quad problem and will not play a part, while right-back Matthew Connolly continues to miss out with his ankle injury.
Portsmouth defender Tal Ben Haim is a doubt for the visit of Millwall. The Israel international missed Saturday's dramatic 2-2 derby draw at Southampton with a calf injury and is still struggling. Midfielder Joel Ward replaced Ben Haim at right-back while another positional change saw Greg Halford step into midfield with Ricardo Rocha recalled to the defence at centre-half. Halford was pushed further up as youngster George Thorne has returned to West Brom after his loan spell, and his season, were cut short by an ankle injury. Out-of-favour Forward Dave Kitson will hope to be involved again after making his first appearance in a month as a substitute at St Mary's. Defender Aaron Mokoena (ankle) and striker Kanu (back) still are out.
Darius Henderson is a doubt for Millwall ahead of Tuesday's trip to Fratton Park. The Lions' 19-goal top scorer missed Saturday's 2-0 win over Hull with a calf injury. The problem is not serious but manager Kenny Jackett says he is more likely to be ready for the visit of Leicester on Saturday. Harry Kane and Andy Keogh grabbed a goal apiece against the Tigers and will start in attack at Fratton Park. Liam Trotter is expected to miss out again with a thigh problem while fellow midfielders Therry Racon (ankle) and Tamika Mkandawire (knee) are out for the season. Back-up goalkeeper Steve Mildenhall is the only other absentee with an ankle injury.
