Poyet: We'll put Birmingham setback right
GUS Poyet has urged Albion to grab a quick chance of redemption at The Amex.
The Seagulls are still top of the Championship on goal difference, despite their 1-0 home defeat by Birmingham on Saturday night.
The visit of Ipswich tomorrow night provides an early opportunity to put the setback behind them and Poyet wants his side to seize it.
The Uruguayan told The Argus: “With all respect to all the other teams, it’s up to us to go and perform from the first minute, not wait and think sooner or later we are going to win.
“We have got a chance on Tuesday. That is one of the good things, that we have got a great chance so quickly.
“We need to recover, see who is available and if we have got any players coming back. That will help, no doubt.”
Bruno is expected to return from a groin injury and Albion are hopeful fellow Spaniard Andre Orlandi will be well enough after flu-type symptoms ruled him out against Birmingham.
Poyet said: “Bruno has got a big chance. Andrea just woke up ill. He has done very well for us on the ball and we missed that.”
Leading marksman Craig Mackail-Smith (hamstring) is still missing and Andrew Crofts remains doubtful with a similar injury, which has sidelined him from the last four matches.
Vicente is poised to resume full training today, as scheduled, but the Spanish playmaker is some way short of match fitness.
