City face tough Seagulls challenge
City travel to top of the table Brighton tonight coming off back to back defeats for the first time this season. Paul Tisdale has hinted at changes to the line-up in a bid to arrest The Grecian`s slight dip in form.
The groin injury that John O`flynn picked up in Saturday`s defeat will rule him out of tonight`s encounter. He will be joined on the sidelines by Daniel Nardiello and Matt Taylor, other than that Tisdale has a fully fit squad to choose from.
Artur Krysiak, Jamie Cureton and Jake Thomson are all pushing for starts.
For Brighton, Indigo Calderon has recovered from a foot injury but midfielder Matt Sparrow is a major doubt. Frank Sandaza and Alan Navarro are certain absentees for The Seagulls.
Last season Brighton were the only team to do the league double over City. A last minute goal gave them the points at St James` Park which was fallowed by a more comfortable 2-0 success at The Withdean.
