A number of our first team players will return for the Rotherham game tomorrow afternoon after they had a game off on Wednesday night in the 3-1 win over Birmingham in the 3rd round replay of the FA Cup.
Rafa made eight changes to the side for that game and started three youngsters who did well on th night and that will be great for their confidence and experience.
But it’s likely to be all change tomorrow for the league game against Rotherham which we must win.
With Isaac Hayden picking up an old groin injury – probably because of all the games (24) he has played this season – he could be rested again tomorrow and jack Colback could come in to partner Jonjo Shelley.
And we expect Daryl Murphy to be leading the line with Mitrovic still not available because of his knee injury.
This is the side Rafa could start tomorrow and there are with this side:
Yedlin Lascelles (c) Clark Dummett
Ritchie Perez Gouffran
That looks like 7 changes from the side that started on Wednesday night with Yedlin, Shelvey, Ritchie and Gouffran keeping their places.
Rafa could surprise us by giving an outing to right-back Jamie Sterry and resting Yedlin, who has played the last two games in Anita’s absence through injury.
And even Sammy Ameobi could see some action tomorrow.
Both players are in the squad for tomorrow’s game.
Brighton play at home to Sheffield Wednesday tonight and then have their make-up game on Tuesday night at home to Cardiff City so it’s very important we win this game tomorrow.
