NICKY FORSTER, an old adversary of Town’s, looks set to sit out a second match tonight after his bust-up with Brighton boss Gus Poyet.
The club’s 15-goal top scorer missed Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Leyton Orient because of a contract dispute.
And sources on the South coast suggest the 36-year-old former Gillingham, Brentford, Birmingham City, Reading, Ipswich Town and Hull City man will not be involved against Town.
On Saturday, ex-Town loan player Liam Dickinson replaced Forster, who has scored 116 times since his £75,000 switch from Hull in June 2007.
Dickinson has bagged six goals this season, the same tally as Welsh international midfielder Andrew Crofts.
Former Carlisle and Rochdale striker Glenn Murray has 11.
Brighton will also be without versatile defender Adam El Abd, who is recovering from a foot problem, and centre-back Colin Hawkins (Achilles).
