Last season the Seagulls were relegated from the Championship, but a good start this term sees them amongst the early promotion pace setters in League 1. Last weekend they let slip there 100% record after leading 2-0 at home to Brentford, they could only manage a draw. Manager Mark NcGhee looks set to be without want away striker Colin Kazim-Richards who will take no part in the squad.
Forest remain unbeaten and have yet to concede a goal in any of there opening three games. Gary Holt will be available for selection after recovering from tonsilitis, which forced him to miss the game at Northampton.
The Seagulls are fast building a reputation for attacking football that manager McGhee sees no reason to change.
'We're still waiting to see if we're promotion material. But we know Forest feel they are, so it's a measure for us, and obviously a win would give us a lot of confidence,' said McGhee.
Forest from: Smith, Morgan, Cullip, Breckin, Southall, Perch, Thompson, Clingan, Bennett, Grant Holt, Lester,
Harris, Padula, Pedersen, Weir-Daley, Gary Holt.
The striker has started well this season and will look to add to his first goal of the season gained at Blackpool. Holt is being hotly tipped as the clubs' new penalty taker after three misses in the opening three games.
Brighton are likely to be without defenders Hinshelwood and Butters with injuries. They also lost the services of winger Albert Jarrett this week after he signed for Watford.
Brighton from: Henderson, Reid, El-Abd, Lynch, Mayo, Hammond, Carpenter, Stokes, Revell, Hart, Cox, Robinson, Loft, Kuipers, Gatting, Lowe.
Alex Revell scored 21 goals for Braintree last year and scored on his debut on the opening day against Rotherham.
Out of 21 meetings between the two sides, Forest have won 11, drawn 5 and lost 5. The last time we met The Seagulls was January 2005, at The Withdean, the game ended in a 0-0 draw.
Huddersfield Town. Away.
