Stephen Warnock is a doubt for Bolton as they prepare to make the trip to Brighton.
The Aston Villa loanee was substituted after only 32 minutes of the Trotters' 1-1 draw against Barnsley last Saturday due to illness, and is facing a race against time to prove he will be fit to face Gus Poyet's side.
The 30-year-old defender was replaced by Tyrone Mears against the Reds, and Mears is likely to start at the Amex should Warnock not travel, with Sam Ricketts moving to left-back.
David Ngog also left the field against Keith Hill's men, but he is expected to keep his place in the starting XI.
Knee injury victims Stuart Holden, Andy Lonergan, David Wheater and Josh Vela all continue their recoveries.
The Lancashire club are unbeaten under Dougie Freedman, but have won just one of their last six games.
