Will Hoskins wants to be ready when called upon for Albion’s play-off push.

The striker struck after only nine minutes for Seagulls’ under-21s yesterday in a 1-1 draw against Bristol City to make it a happy return after a year on the sidelines following a cruciate knee ligament injury.

He was withdrawn after 30 minutes in a pre-planned move but buzzed around upfront during his brief stint.

Hoskins, 27, said: “There isn't that long left in the season so I have to get my fitness and sharpness quickly.

“I just want to be ready if I am called upon and the team needs me.

“Also, I want to give the team some healthy competition. I want to be there.”

Hoskins’ return is timely as striker Craig Mackail-Smith’s recovery has been slowed by a groin problem while striker Leo Ulloa is playing with an ankle injury.

Hosko back can't come quick enough. Ulloa and Hoskins paired up front will do for me.

Watched Will yesterday and he looked hungry for it, looked in great shape and I am looking forward to seeing him back in Champianship action soon. Will was also helping with advice to the younger players and scored a goal for his troubles. WELCOME BACK WILL
