Aaron Connolly fit to face Sheffield United

Brighton striker Aaron Connolly is fit to face Sheffield United at the Amex Stadium on Saturday.

The 19-year-old Republic of Ireland international has missed two matches, including Monday night’s 1-1 derby draw at Crystal Palace, after suffering a dead leg.

Midfielder Dale Stephens is also available after he sat out at Selhurst Park through suspension to hand boss Graham Potter a double boost.

Blades boss Chris Wilder is forced to change a winning team with John Fleck suspended.

The Scottish midfielder received his fifth yellow card of the season during the home victory against Aston Villa and he must serve a one-match ban. Mo Besic, on loan from Everton, is most likely to replace Fleck in the starting line up.

Wilder otherwise has a full squad available. Oliver Norwood and John Lundstram are both one more yellow card away from a suspension.

Brighton provisional squad: Ryan, Dunk, Webster, Burn, Stephens, Bissouma, Mooy, Propper, Alzate, Trossard, Gross, Maupay, Button, Duffy, Montoya, Bernardo, Jahanbakhsh, Murray, Connolly.

Sheffield United provisional squad: Henderson, Egan, O’Connell, Basham, Baldock, Norwood, Stevens, Lundstram, Morrison, McGoldrick, Mousset, Robinson, Freeman, McBurnie, Moore, Sharp, Jagielka, Besic.
