Liam Bridcutt: On the mend

Liam Bridcutt: On the mend

The Seagulls were without seven first-team players through injury as they held Watford to a 1-1 draw at the Amex on Monday night.

But midfield trio Andrea Orlandi, Liam Bridcutt and Kemy Agustien are all on the verge of returning to training.

"Some of the injured players will start training on Tuesday - Andrea and Kemy will definitely start training with the group and we also will have to see if Liam is available," Garcia said.

"I cannot say exactly when we will have any of them back. Only Kemy is available to join in the full training sessions, the others will join in where they can."

However, Brighton's injury jinx struck again when full-back Stephen Ward limped off with a hamstring problem against the Hornets.

"We will have to wait until we find out Stephen Ward's injury situation," Garcia said.

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
