Albion defenders Wayne Bridge and Adam El-Abd are on course to make their comebacks from injury against Charlton at The Valley on Saturday.

  Both came through a training session today switched to The Amex, because the pitches at the University of Sussex sports complex were frozen.

  Left-back Bridge has missed the last four matches with a calf complaint, centre half El-Abd the last six due to hamstring trouble.

  The Seagulls are desperate for the pair to play, with deputies Marcos Painter and Lewis Dunk ruled out by injury and suspension respectively.
