Albion fans will be relieved to hear number one stopper Tomasz Kuszczak is likely to return to the starting line-up after missing out on the Seagulls’ away win at Huddersfield with an injured finger.
Wayne Bridge is almost certain to miss out however, with Marcos Painter expected to continue in his place after a solid come-back performance last time out.
The Albion go into the match in the midst of a five game unbeaten run and will be looking to register their 1,000th home league win and the 200th league goal of manager Gus Poyet’s three year spell at the helm.
Visiting Bolton, now managed by former Crystal Palace villain-in-chief Dougie Freedman, will leave it late before deciding on the fitness of Stephen Warnock and David Ngog. The Trotters are unbeaten under Freedman.
