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.

Vital Quotes:

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.
