Team News: Bridcutt and Mackail-Smith return

Liam Bridcutt and Craig Mackail-Smith return to the starting line-up at Bristol City tonight, as Gus Poyet makes two changes.

Bridcutt slots straight back into his usual holding role, having completed a 2-game suspension, with Gary Dicker dropping to the bench. A more surprising change, however, is the decision to rest Saturday's hat-trick hero Leo Ulloa, as Mackail-Smith is given the go ahead to lead the line tonight.

Inigo Calderon continues at left-back in the absence of Wayne Bridge, whilst youngsters Jake Forster-Caskey and George Barker are again handed places on the substitutes bench.

Line-ups in full:

Bristol City: Heaton; Moloney, Nyatanga, Fontaine, Cunningham, Anderson, Kelly, Skuse, Elliott, Pearson, Stead.

Subs: Gerken, Bates, Howard, Kilkenny, Adomah, Baldock, Davies.

Brighton & Hove Albion: Kuszczak, Bruno, Upson, El-Abd, Calderon; Bridcutt, Hammond, David; Orlandi, Mackail-Smith, Buckley.

Subs: Ankergren, Greer, Dicker, Forster-Caskey, LuaLua, Ulloa, Barker.
