Ben Mee returns to the Burnley starting lineup against Brighton & Hove Albion after recovering from injury.

Burnley manager Sean Dyche has been handed a boost ahead of tonight's Championship clash against Brighton & Hove Albion by the return of Ben Mee.

The defender has been missing due to a thigh injury picked up on New Year's Day, although he has now recovered and goes straight into Dyche's team for the visit of the Seagulls.

Injured duo Danny Lafferty and Keith Treacy miss out on the 18-man squad altogether, however, as the Clarets look to retain their unbeaten home run this season.

Brighton were worrying on the fitness of Thomas Kuszczak, Bruno Saltor, Gordon Greer, Stephen Ward and David Lopez ahead of the game, although all five start the Turf Moor clash.

Burnley: Heaton, Trippier, Mee, Shackell, Duff, Kightly, Marney, Arfield, Jones, Ings, Vokes
Subs: Cisak, Stock, Long, Edgar, Stanislas, Hewitt, Barnes

Brighton & Hove Albion: Kuszczak, Bruno, Greer, Upson, Ward, Andrews, Ince, Forster-Caskey, LuaLua, Ulloa, Lopez
Subs: Brezovan, Calderon, Dunk, Agustien, Orlandi, March, Obika
