MILLWALL will be without the services of midfielder Jimmy Abdou when they travel to Brighton on Tuesday night.

Abdou collected his fifth yellow card of the season in Saturday’s 1-0 victory over Leicester City and subsequently serves a one-match suspension. Josh Wright is set to replace him.

Striker Darius Henderson has an outside chance of featuring against the Seagulls and will undergo a late fitness test, having trained for the latter part of last week.

Andy Keogh is still struggling with a broken toe and boss Kenny Jackett may be tempted to partner Danny N’Guessan alongside Chris Wood up front, as he did against the Foxes.

However, winger Chris Taylor is expected to return to the starting line-up after scoring the winner in an impressive second-half cameo on Saturday.

Brighton manager Gus Poyet will be without the services of quartet Bruno, Gary Dicker, Andrea Orlandi and Vicente for the Lions' visit to the Amex Stadium.

Bruno is set to miss out again with an Achilles injury. Inigo Calderon will continue at right-back in his absence, having overcome a knock sustained in a 0-0 draw with Nottingham Forest at the weekend.

Midfielders Dicker (knee), Orlandi (rib) and Vicente (thigh) remain sidelined, meaning Poyet is likely to name an unchanged side.
