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.
