The Seagulls find themselves short on attacking options with Craig Mackail-Smith and Leonardo Ulloa currently sidelined.

They have been able to take Leroy Lita on loan from Swansea City, but remain in the market for further attacking talent.

Reports suggest that Nottingham Forest striker Dexter Blackstock is the man they have their eye on, with the 27-year-old out of favour at the City Ground.

Jones has refused to confirm or deny that Blackstock is the man Brighton want, but admits there could be movement on the transfer front in the near future.

He told the Argus following Saturday's goalless draw with Yeovil Town: "We are looking for someone who will score goals, with presence.

"We think we have him but we have just got to finalise everything. Hopefully he will have someone but you never know. We have been trying for months."

Jones is also tipping Lita - who made his debut off the bench against the Glovers - to shine on the south coast once he has settled in new surroundings.

He added: "If Leroy's at it and right on his game he will do well for us. He's come in for his debut after training with us for one day.

"It's been difficult for him. He came on and did affect the game, got chances. If he keeps getting chances then he will get goals."

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.

alcao really needs to shine now. Apparently according to the stats, he scores more when played up front alone. I wonder if Van Gaal will actually apply a formation to get the best out of him though.
