Albion duo doubts for Derby return
Albion have two fresh injury worries for Sunday's second leg of the play-offs at Derby.
Winger Will Buckley and player of the season Matt Upson are both struggling for the trip to the iPro Stadium.
Buckley was replaced by Kazenga LuaLua at half-time in last night's 2-1 defeat at the Amex. The right winger suffered a further recurrence of the hamstring trouble which has plagued him all season.
Veteran centre-half Upson has been playing with an ankle problem since the latter stages of the season.
Head coach Oscar Garcia told The Argus: "Will felt his hamstring a little bit and we have to wait and see. At this moment we don't know if he will be available.
"The medical department is working hard with him to try to find the right solution.
"Matt finished the game with pain but it's another case that we have to wait and see. If not Dunky (Lewis Dunk) will play."
Albion will still be without midfielder Dale Stephens (ankle ligaments) and probably Bruno as well (groin).
Oscar said of his first choice right-back: "It will be difficult. We have to wait and see in these two days how he can manage the injury. Dale is out."
The Seagulls are heading back to St George's Park today, where they have prepared for two away matches already this season.
- Albion linked again with January targets
- Ward in Wolves run-out
- Macca has to be patient
- Borough stalwart honoured by testimonial
- Sussex crushed by Chopra ton
