A draw with Reading on Saturday, when Brighton had been ahead, saw us miss a chance of moving level on points with Wigan in the last championship play off spots.
We could move into the top six this week though but results would need to go our way and we would have to beat potential play off rivals QPR at the Amex though on Tuesday for this to happen.
Albion captain Gordon Greer misses this game with suspension after his was sent off for two bookable offences against Reading. This will open the door for Lewis Dunk to make his first start on the Championship season and for some 15 months.
Dale Stephens (foot) and Andrea Orlandi (thigh) need to have injuries assessed.
A return is getting closer for Will Hoskins but this will come too soon, Kemy Agustien was in the development squad on Monday too so that should mean this isn't a game he'll be involved in.
Kevin Doyle could miss out for QPR after he had to go off against Birmingham on Saturday with a knee problem, which will be a worry as Charlie Austin (shoulder) is already out along with Bobby Zamora and Andy Johnson.
Will Keane or Modibo Maiga will be the attacking option if needed.
A hamstring injury kept out Niko Kranjcar on Saturday but Ale Faurlin (cruciate), Matty Phillips (ankle) and Danny Simpson (back) are definitely missing due to injury.
When we met at Loftus Road the game ended in a 0-0 draw.
The record against QPR in recent times, even if the meetings haven't been that often, is good. You've got to go back almost 10 years since the last QPR win at Brighton with us winning three of the last four games we've had as the home side.
QPR don't concede too many but don't score many either, I'm hoping for another 'one nil to the Albion' at the Amex.
