Millwall and Brighton battle it out at The Den on Sunday for a place in the semi-final of the FA Cup.

Championship outfit Millwall ended a four-game losing run with a 2-0 victory at Birmingham City on Wednesday, a result that has put the relegation-threatened club one point clear of the bottom three.

The Lions have won their last five FA Cup home matches against top-flight opposition, beating Aston Villa, Bournemouth, Watford, Leicester and Everton, while the Londoners have lost just one of their last 15 games at The Den in this competition.

English forward Lee Gregory, who was withdrawn in the second half of that win over Birmingham because of a tight calf, will be monitored ahead of the contest and he faces a race against time to be fit.

Ben Thompson and Ben Marshall are both cup-tied while defender Murray Wallace is suspended, though he would have missed this match regardless because of a knee injury.

Brighton are in the last eight for the second successive season but only the fourth time in their history and the south coast outfit will be looking for their first win at this stage since beating Norwich City 1-0 in March 1983.

The Seagulls defeated Crystal Palace 2-1 in the Premier League last time out, extending their winning run to two matches, but they will be without the services of Romanian forward Florin Andone as he continues to struggle with a groin injury.

Midfielder Pascal Gross is also missing with a hamstring issue but defender Leon Balogun is available.
