TEAM NEWS
Bradley Johnson (foot) and Ryan Bennett (hamstring) are both fully fit and will travel for City's Good Friday trip to the Amex Stadium.

Elliott Bennett (hamstring) has trained with the first-team squad in recent days but this game against his former employers comes too soon for a return to action.

Lewis Grabban (ankle) is ahead of schedule with his recovery having started running, but he won't be available against the Seagulls.

City had six first-team players away on international duty but none of them returned to Colney with any injury concerns.
