The winger was left out of the squad for the 2-0 defeat at Huddersfield on Saturday despite travelling with the squad to Yorkshire. Seagulls boss Chris Hughton afterwards admitted it was just a selection decision why Knockaert had not been included in the 18-man squad.

Asked today if Knockaert could return to the squad for Wednesday's match, Hughton said: "Yes, very much so. I made a decision to go a certain way in the game against Huddersfield and also on the bench. What we have got is a very competitive squad at the moment and around that, I have to make decisions.

"Sometimes you make good decisions, sometimes you make not so good but I have to make them around what I see at the time."

Hughton has a full squad to choose from for the match, apart from Steve Sidwell who is still out with a back injury.
