Team news: Kieron Freeman recalled to Derby County side at Brighton
KIERON Freeman has been recalled to the Derby County side for today's Championship encounter with Brighton & Hove Albion at the Amex Stadium (3pm).
Freeman will make his second start for the Rams - and a first in his preferred position of right-back, as John Brayford has been moved into a five-man midfield.
The switch means Michael Jacobs is the man to miss out, dropping to the bench.
Nigel Clough's starting line-up is otherwise unchanged from last weekend's 5-0 FA Cup victory over Tranmere Rovers.

Jamie Ward is named among the Derby substitutes, having come through an hour in a behind-closed-doors friendly against Burton Albion in midweek.
Brighton striker Craig Mackail-Smith misses out due to a hamstring injury but Will Buckley is fit to return to Gus Poyet's starting line-up.
Inigo Calderon is also recalled at right-back following a knee problem, so David Lopez moves back to midfield, with Gary Dicker making way.
In goal, Tomasz Kuszczak replaces Casper Ankergren.
