After their first lose in the league since February, Brighton will be looking to bounce back with a bang, starting with the first of their 2 home games against Brentford; Brentford will however be looking to pick up their first away win of the season, after losing all 3 of their away games thus far.
Brentford’s Lasse Vibe will be missing from the squad after seeing red in the previous game against Sheffield Wednesday. Alan Judge is still recovering from a broken leg sustained at the end of last season, but Dean Smith should have a full selection otherwise, including new signing Rico Henry.
