Forest, on the other hand, are unbeaten in five but have only won once away from home in the league.
Brighton's 1-1 draw with Sheffield Wednesday sees them sit 12th in the table, while Forest are in a playoff spot early on.
Despite Leonardo Ulloa not managing to find the net on his return to the side against the Owls, he is expected to keep his place up front.
There are no fresh injury concerns for Billy Davies, but he could be tempted to shuffle his pack after the draw at Charlton Athletic.
Possible starting lineups
Brighton: Kuszczak; Calderon, Greer, Upson, Ward; Bridcutt, Andrews, Lopez; Buckley, Ulloa, LuaLua
Forest: Darlow; Lichaj, Hobbs, Collins, Cohen; Lansbury, Chalobah, Reid; Mackie, Blackstock, Derbyshire
Sports Mole says: 1-1
