Solly can march on for Seagulls

The Argus: Solly March, right, could benefit from Will Buckley's injury setback Solly March, right, could benefit from Will Buckley's injury setback

Solly March could continue his Championship run for Albion after another injury setback for Will Buckley.

Teenager March is on course for his third successive start in the League against Wigan at the Amex on Saturday amid renewed doubts about Buckley’s fitness.

Buckley asked to be substituted at half-time in Monday’s FA Cup draw against Hull, due to continued discomfort with the hamstring problems which have plagued him.

The right-winger set up Leo Ulloa’s first-half goal and provided another opportunity for the Argentinian striker on the stroke of half-time before calling time on his first start of the year.

Buckley limped off at Blackpool on December 29 and has started only 12 of Albion's 30 Championship outings so far this season.

March replaced him for the second half against Hull after impressing against Doncaster on his full League debut and keeping his place against Leeds three days later.

Tomasz Kuszczak, Stephen Ward and Andrea Orlandi were all rested for Hull's visit, while captain Gordon Greer, the fit-again Bruno and David Rodriguez were among the substitutes.

The Seagulls also have Cup-tied central midfielder Dale Stephens available to face Wigan.

Albion are at Bognor tonight in the quarter-finals of the Sussex Senior Cup (7.45pm).

No doubt we'll have a stream of " sick note" posts - personally, I feel sorry for the bloke, it must be incredibly frustrating, I'm sure he doesn't want to be missing out on playing, so maybe a little understanding and support is called for. I think we really miss him and if he could stay fit then we'd have a good shot at that final play-off place. We're lucky we have an able, if inexperienced replacement in Solly.

Agree. My issue is that it poses questions of others not Will himself. I may simply be paranoid because it's 'my' club, but we do seem to have more than our fair share of injuries that won't go away?

Touble is, March isn't the finished article yet whereas Will is. Solly is Premier League up to the penalty box, but Conference when it matters. Not a criticism,but reflects his lack of top class experience. However Will can deliver at the sharp end right now and will be missed.

Sadly we signed Buckley , and several Watford fans came on here saying he was never fit! I think we missed out when we could have sold him..
If you add lua lua to the pot , how can we get a settled side when we have two wingers who are constantly injured?? If we turned down over 1.5 million for him it was a massive mistake.. That's not blaming Buckley ,
Good luck to march, the kid has chance to grab a starting place for rest of season, I have a feeling it's going to unravel this Saturday... As a poster yesterday said Wigan signed Maynard and he has scored 3-4 in a few games!

How can we have sold him in the window when he was injured? None of us (including you) know the real details and whether Sunderland were willing to buy him without him passing a medical.

As for your comment that "it's going to unravel on Saturday", that's frankly the kind of negative comment I've come to expect from you. This season (even with all the injury setbacks) has shown me that there is a spirit in this team that will see us in - or at least near - the playoff zone in late April. But then I'm a 'glass half full guy', something you should try.

Remember a spell a certain Ryan Giggs suffered with his hamstrings. That spell lasted two or three years but I think his career turned out ok in the end.
So frustrating for Will and us but Solly can will (sorry for pun) keep improving by playing.
Also we don't have Wigan parachute money MBTS , have you some spare sloshing around ??
Watched recorded Albion on bt sport. Very interesting interviews with Andy Naylor and Oscar ,worth a watch as I got the feeling Oscar is happy here and fully behind the club's desire to 'watch the pennies' policy and ffp which is brilliant for us right now . Money is great but look at the home grown talent at Barca where he played. Yes of course they have added big money signings but today's Barca was born out of a philophecy started years ago when Oscar played and he seems to 'get it'.
Here's hoping he is here for a few years.

People with explosive pace tend to get injured more easily than donkeys. The strain that the acceleration puts on the body is such that these things happen, that is why KLL and WB suffer the most. WB is a great talen for Brighton, but we have to live with the injuries I'm afraid.

How can we be serious promotion contenders with one goal scorer ?
I am happy that march and ince have come through our football has been very good, but in all honesty 32 goals from 30 games is not promotion, look at other clubs ie forest , they have 6 forwards with goal scoring ability, that's why they are there, this club won't progress unless we can win games ( this is not a new thing last season we drew far to many games and lacked till ulloa came) Wigan are on the charge,... That's a fact rather than having tinted glasses on.. They signed Nicky Maynard and we MISS out .

And give Will the time to get his head sorted and his injury.. he showed what standard Solly has to get to for the next level

Agree. My issue is that it poses questions of others not Will himself. I may simply be paranoid because it's 'my' club, but we do seem to have more than our fair share of injuries that won't go away?
Sadly we signed Buckley , and several Watford fans came on here saying he was never fit! I think we missed out when we could have sold him..

Based on his perfomances, March is a fixture for me in the team now. I would like to see him involved for large parts of every game. As for Will, it's desperately disappointing. Such a talent.

Sad for Will and the club, he was having a good game. Solly has the pace and energy, but needs more confidence in himself around the box.

Oscar doesn't seem to like these 'on loan' strikers does he?. Perhaps they don't show enough in training.
Any more news on CMS? We need his passion and energy right now.

Blimey that's how bad it was....Bob Booker had to take to the field and play, just glad he scored a few!!!

Perhaps you meant Paul Brooker! Haha.

Sometimes players refuse to play with slight niggles when wanting out whilst happy players will play with niggles. Don't know if this is the case here but if he was so injury prone why would he interest other clubs?.

The club don't have any back up for Ulloa, therefore, Brighton's chances went with Barnes. The club couldn't hold onto him even though Burnley can't offer him a regular spot in the first team

Remember a spell a certain Ryan Giggs suffered with his hamstrings. That spell lasted two or three years but I think his career turned out ok in the end.
So frustrating for Will and us but Solly can will (sorry for pun) keep improving by playing.
Also we don't have Wigan parachute money MBTS , have you some spare sloshing around ??
Watched recorded Albion on bt sport. Very interesting interviews with Andy Naylor and Oscar ,worth a watch as I got the feeling Oscar is happy here and fully behind the club's desire to 'watch the pennies' policy and ffp which is brilliant for us right now . Money is great but look at the home grown talent at Barca where he played. Yes of course they have added big money signings but today's Barca was born out of a philophecy started years ago when Oscar played and he seems to 'get it'.
Here's hoping he is here for a few years.
