Garcia got his first home win for Brighton against the Clarets and will be looking to complete a double against us tonight as they push towards getting a place in the top six.
Yesterday he said: "It's a good chance to send a message to the league. Last season against Cardiff (winning 2-0 away) was a turning point, so this is a good moment for us to step forward and say something.
"Let's see if we can beat them. I feel we have a chance. I don't think they are better than us, but Burnley are where they are for a reason and we are up against Ashley (Barnes) which is going to be another exciting point about the game, but I think against the top teams we always perform well."
Garcia, who didn't want Barnes to leave, added: "I suppose it will be strange (him playing against Brighton) but I wish him all the best after Tuesday. He is going through the team slowly because the other players are doing very well, but he has enough quality to play."
It doesn't seem as if there was too much interest from the media in asking Sean Dyche about tonight's game at yesterday's press conference with most of the talk about the possibility of players leaving, particularly Danny Ings after some wild speculation from a hardly reliable source.
Dyche said: "There have been no enquiries for any of our players. We are looking to get them in, not send them out."
He admitted there were difficulties in getting players in and added: "We have tried to open lines of communication with a few parties. Finance is not so easy, so we have to judge that accordingly.
"I've said it many times. It's not as easy as some other club who can throw money at everything. There's a strong possibility that we're looking in the loan market, but that's been the case all season really.
"We have to work accordingly, but we'll see what comes our way and yet again it goes down to availability and the will and desire for someone to want to come in and effect what is happening here."
He did speak about the game in that it would offer Ashley Barnes an early opportunity to play against his former club. He said: It's a strange turnaround coming in and playing his old club so quickly but that sometimes happens and he'll be looking to perform because he's Burnley now of course, so he'll be looking to perform on behalf of us.
"He's respectful of his time at Brighton and he made a good name for himself there which is why people like ourselves were interested. He's a Burnley player and we are looking for him to give performances. When he came on in the last game he had a nice little effect, a little cameo role so we're looking for that again when needed."
Finally he confirmed that Ross Wallace was fit again and said: "We have a game planned for him later this week and the ninety minutes will hopefully signal the recovery of his rehab. We feel that's important for him because he had been more or less there for about a week now, but physically and mentally the ninety minutes is different."
