Bruno, Glenn Murray, Izzy Brown and Gaetan Bong will all be available for Brighton when they host Newcastle on Sunday.

Bruno was absent for last Friday's defeat at Bournemouth, owing to a back injury, while Murray missed out on Tuesday's loss to the same team because of an injured ankle.

A back injury means Steve Sidwell remains unavailable, while Beram Kayal is a long-term absentee having broken his leg.

Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez has no fresh injury concerns as he goes in search of a fourth successive Premier League win at Brighton.

Florian Lejeune is yet to fully recover from the ankle injury he suffered against Tottenham during the opening weekend of the campaign, while fellow defenders Paul Dummett (hamstring) and Massadio Haidara (knee) continue to work their way back to fitness.

Striker Aleksandar Mitrovic completes his three-match man, while midfielder Jonjo Shelvey looks for his first start since returning from his own suspension.
