Leeds will evaluate Rodrigo and Luis Sinisterra, who have resumed training after injury lay-offs, though head coach Javi Gracia has indicated the pair won't be risked unless fully fit.
Fellow forward Patrick Bamford will also be monitored after missing the defeat at Chelsea with a leg problem.
Brighton full-back Tariq Lamptey, who was forced off against West Ham with a knee issue, faces a fitness test.
Centre-back Levi Colwill may come back into contention after a muscle injury.
- Leeds have won just one of their past 12 league games against Brighton (D2, L9), failing to score in nine of those fixtures.
- Brighton are unbeaten in all five of their Premier League meetings with Leeds (W3, D2), conceding just one goal in total.
- Victory against Southampton on 25 February in Javi Gracia's first match in charge is Leeds' only win in their last 12 league games (D4, L7).
- The Whites are vying to win consecutive home Premier League home fixtures for just the second time since the start of last season.
- Victory would also see Gracia become the first Leeds manager to win his first two top-flight home matches in charge since Jimmy Armfield in October 1974.
- They have 22 points after 25 league matches, one point fewer than at the same stage of last season.
- Despite having only played 23 Premier League games, Brighton's total of 43 goals is their joint-highest figure in a top-flight season since 1981-82, and only 11 short of the club record set in 1980-81.
- A 12th league win of the campaign would equal their highest tally in a Premier League season, set in 2021-22.
- The Seagulls have failed to score in just one of their 11 away league matches this season and are unbeaten in their last five top-flight fixtures on the road.
- They have registered 136 shots on target in the Premier League this season compared to 75 faced, a difference of 61 - only Manchester City boast a higher positive difference.
- Brighton have won all six league games this season against teams currently in the bottom five.
- Only three of their last 18 Premier League goals have been netted in the first half.
