Bolton have won their last four league games and are unbeaten in seven; they are also unbeaten at home since Boxing Day.
Dougie Freedman has no fresh injury or suspension concerns in his Bolton side and could well name the same lineup from the 1-0 win against Blackburn Rovers, although match winner Chris Eagles might start.
Poyet is struggling for numbers up front after Craig Mackail-Smith's injury in midweek, but Leonardo Ulloa will come back into the XI after sitting out the last game following his hat-trick against Huddersfield Town.
Possible starting lineups
Bolton: Bogdan; Ricketts, Knight, Dawson, Alonso; Eagles, Spearing, Pratley, Lee; Davies, N'Gog
Brighton: Kuszczak; Bruno, El-Abd, Upson, Calderon; Bridcutt, Hammond; Buckley, Lopez, Orlandi; Ulloa
Sports Mole says: 1-1
