Matt Upson has been ruled out of Albion’s quest for Wembley – but Will Buckley is fit to start.

Lewis Dunk replaces Upson in defence as the Seagulls look to overturn a 2-1 first-leg deficit at Derby in the play-off semi-final today.

Dunk's return is one of two changes, the other seeing Jake Forster-Caskey drop to the bench as Rohan Ince returns to midfield.

But Buckley is ready to start after suffering hamstring trouble at the Amex on Thursday.

Kemy Agustien returns to the bench but there is no place in the 18 for penalty taker David Lopez.

Albion: Kuszczak; Calderon, Greer, Dunk, Ward; Andrews, Ince, Orlandi; Buckley, Lingard, Ulloa. Subs: Brezovan, Chicksen, March, LuaLua, Forster-Caskey, Agustien, Mackail-Smith.

I think Orlandi is very fortunate to be starting. Hope he proves me wrong, in fact I'm praying he proves me wrong.

Must be a record for you thumbs up wise, Buckley, Lingard, Ulloa and Orlandi will be scoring while Ince stops them in their tracks. UTA
