Albion face double injury worry for crunch match at Forest

Dale Stephens

First published in Sport by , Chief sports reporter

ALBION are sweating on the fitness of Matt Upson and Dale Stephens for their final day crunch match at Nottingham Forest.

Both players are fighting to shrug off ankle injuries for Saturday's clash at the City Ground which will determine whether the Seagulls reach the Championship play-offs.

Upson damaged a tendon in the 0-0 draw at Barnsley on April 5.

The former England centre-half played in last Monday’s 1-1 home draw with Blackpool but was replaced by Lewis Dunk for Friday night’s 2-0 win against relegated Yeovil at the Amex.

Midfielder Stephens was forced off in the closing stages of the Yeovil game.

Reading took Albion’s fate back out of their own hands by winning 3-1 at Doncaster Rovers on Saturday.

The Royals are fifth, a point and two places above Oscar Garcia’s side, ahead of their closing home fixture against promoted Burnley.

Wigan have dropped to sixth, a point above Albion with a game in hand at Birmingham tomorrow night before visiting Blackburn.

Albion have carried their challenge through to the end with a seven-match unbeaten run.

Head coach Oscar said: "It has been a fantastic season. To be fighting for a place in the play-offs in the last game is an incredible achievement for us."

Forest cannot reach the play-offs after losing 4-1 at Bournemouth on Saturday.

Morning boys

we would always want Stephens and Upson to start any game for us, let's just hope they both play a part at forest, if not we've got cover in both positions, let's leave Dunk alone on here if he has to step in again some people don't like him playing but all he lacks is a constant run in the side, now is the time to get behind the boys, if your in the squad your good enough to start,

Anyone no if we are to be given anymore tickets now Forest are out off playoffs!!!!
Up the Albion!!!!

Agreed, I am beginning to think this might be last season for upson, going back to end of last season, Bridge was carrying injuries but playing, this season he has been injured with various problems, ... Would I give upson another year? Yes.. But we need at least one more centre half , we should have 4 after we sold elabd we were looking at Baird and a few others.
The Blackpool centreback only 18 looked really comfortable on the ball.
When was the last season we had mid table end to a season?

No disrespect to Upson now he is 35 the lad has played at the highest level all his career the injuries are bound to catch up with him and take longer to heel, I think people forget the lad has played 21 games for England, yes its like Bridge what has he done this season nothing really, we need to get this campaign over, then let Oscar get rid off the dead wood and let him bring his own players in, yer that young lad is good but would he sit in the DS squad to long,

I agree with OG, it is a tremendous achievement to be in this position with a squad that's paper thin.
And for me, that achievement is down to OG himself. As general guide, we didn't have one player in the Championship Team Of The Season and while the same can be said of Wigan and Reading, their "success" has been based (IMO) around a dependable squad that's half a rung further up the ladder than ours and didn't lose major players to the transfer window.
Whatever happens on Saturday, I'll remain onside with OG. He's squeezed the best out of an honest but average squad and, assuming he's given the latitude, he'll spend the summer putting round pegs in round holes and making sure we have enough of them for next season.

I don't think that lad at Blackpool would be in the DS . OG needs to build a squad with a thin base of " premier ready" players, how many are really good enough to step up? Probably Buckley, ulloa and TK if I am honest.
It's worth remembering upson had years of injuries prior to coming here.

Kind of fitting that we'd go into this key game with some key players injured, sort of sums up the season really but we can take heart from the fact that OG has managed to deal with these scenarios well up to now and in this game he can really afford to go all out for a win. Hopefully Forest will want an honest open game and not try to sit deep and get us on the counter attack, but whatever their strategy I feel that we have a good chance to make it to the play-offs. Come on you Seagulls!!!!

That's what the commentator said after he told us that Reading had beaten Yeovil to send them down but you never no?
For once I really would like to read that Albion go into the next game with NO injury worries!!
OC has a full squad to pick from with CMS ready for the full 90 minutes.
Something along those lines would make a change.

A must win match against Forest, so no point in sending out players to start a game they might not be able to finish, we don't need enforced changes during the game as that would restrict our ability to make tactical changes should they be needed. If Upson and Stephens are not at least 90% fit, end their season now and let the training sessions be shaped on their absense.

I think we might see a real attacking line up for this one, possibly the most attacking of the season. Oscar, even when looking to have a more attacking line up, has still been a tad cautious. With this being the last match, and one we need to not only win but also score goals, goal difference might come into play, Oscar might just throw caution tot he wind and really go for it.

CMS and Ulloa could start up front, Kaz and Buckley playing wide Lingard attacking from midfield. Andrews and Ince in midfield with a back three of Bruno, Greer and Ward, TK in goal. There is nothing to lose and everything to gain by launching an all out assult.

When was the last season we had mid table end to a season?
MBTS, I think I am correct in saying our last 'mid table finish was two seasons ago when we finished 10th.
In terms of the future recruitment we clearly need another CB as you point out perhaps somebody who might partner Dunk long term. I thought Dunk played well on Friday including making one class pass of about 60 yards to Buckley. With regards to Upson I would definitely offer Upson another year but would quite like in theory to get him involved on the coaching side. I say 'in theory' since I don't know if he has the relevant coaching badges. With our new Academy/Training facility opening in July getting a recent England international who is also a 'model professional' involved with our youngsters must surely be worth considering.
Talking of recruiting players or indeed re-signing some, we can expect lots of activity over the next 10 weeks or so given the fact that about 11 players are out of contract this summer and another 3 players (Andrews, Ward & Lingard) return to their parent clubs.
Potentially we might need the following:-
2 to 3 GKs, 3 FBs, 2 CBs, 3 Midfielders, and 2 Strikers. If LuaLua is out of contract we would also need a winger. Of course if anybody like Buckley were to leave then they would need replacing as well.
Personally I hope we resign TK, MU, AO (subject to fitness), one of BS or IC and KLL if he is out of contract.
Delighted to see that the field vying for play-off places has been wittled down to 4 clubs for the last two places but obviously disappointed that our destiny is not in our own hands. Goal difference could well become the deciding factor.
Finally I am keeping my fingers crossed that Upson and Stephens will be fit enough to be in the Match squad against Forest.

Ok, so maybe Calde, Greer and Dunk but I would go with my original three, but with playing 3 at the back they would have to stay at home, leave the wide raiding to Buckley and Kaz. My point is, only have 3 at the back allowing for an extra one up front.

What do you think is more important to Brighton fans, your dislike of Dunk, or Dunk having a good game and by doing so help us beat Forest?

Your continuous comments slagging off Dunk go directly against what a fan of Brighton wants, especially with Upson looking likely to miss out on our last, and important match, in the league this season.

You leave yourself wide open to question, the question being, are you really a fan of Brighton.

Vegas we only need to win the game, it's not about winning three or four nil, one nil will suffice and that's what I think we will get,
As for players coming in, we can't keep allowing premier ready players to leave, at some point we need to improve the squad, I honestly feel a lot of money needs to be spent unless we are gambling with hopefully like augustin , ... Nice to see him in the casino again! That 10k a week must be burning a hole in his pocket.

Mark do you think Bridcutt is, 'prem ready,' I have seen several Sunderland matches recently, and when he has played he has looked very ordinary to me.
Barnes, another who has moved on but is he, 'prem ready,' can't see it myself. I am not sure just who you are referring to when you say, 'we can't keep allowing prem ready players to leave.' Who have we let go that you think was prem ready?

What's the problem with players going to a casino? Unless he's getting drunk, in which case the fact it's a casino is irrelevant.

I probably take up gambling if I was a player not getting a match.

Sorry, but why on earth would you suddenly change to a different and alien set up and play three at the back with only one accredited central defender. Madness.
So let's chuck 45 matches in the bin and expect a miracle. You might as well send 'em out in blindfolds.

well it's nice that you replied in such a polite way.

All season long some sectors have been calling for a 4-4-2 formation to be played, my suggestion was that we simply take it one step further and have the extra attacking option. Playing 3 at the back would certainly be different for us, I know that, but playing two up front and two wide players would also be different. I am suggesting throwing caution to the wind but a slight insurance policy with both Ince and Andrews in midfield.
If we went with Greer, Dunk and Ward that would give us two CB's, perhaps that would ease your fears a little.

I agree it would be a gamble but isn't that what you do at this time of the year, and it would as sure as hell surprise Forest.
