One back, one still out for Albion

The Argus: Lewis Dunk, available again after suspension Lewis Dunk, available again after suspension

  Albion have Lewis Dunk back from a ban for Nottingham Forest's visit to The Amex on Saturday.


  But Gary Dicker will be missing from the squad again with a knee injury.


  Dunk, suspended for his red card at Crystal Palace, will be competing for a place on the bench following Adam El-Abd's comeback from hamstring trouble in last Saturday's 2-2 draw at Charlton.


  Midfielder Dicker was missing from the squad at The Valley.


  Boss Gus Poyet said: "He had a massive knock in training with Casper Ankergren and his knee was very swollen.


  "He rested, trained and then got another hit in the same place which made it even worse. I don't think he is going to be there for this weekend."

A tad harsh Tinker, training accidents happen at all clubs, should we get rid of who ever it was that caught him on the second knock too?

Dunk is a liability. If he gets himself sent off again we will be stuffed. I'd sell him in January.

Well I am not so sure that we would be stuffed, the lad is mostly cover for others. Bridge, Greer, El-Abd and Bruno, the fab four. We have Calde and probably will have a new recruit. Difficult maybe, stuffed, no.

As far as selling him, I could probabaly go with that but would we be letting someone go that has yet to reach his full potential, he is still a young lad. Tough call. I would let him go if we replaced him with someone better equiped.

Dunky is still the best cover we currently have for Adam. The sending off will have focused his mind no end.

I don't think anyone will buy him in January until htat other matter comes to a conclusion.

Tinker thanks for your reply, and be assured, I will post loads before Christmas.
I can see Brez leaving and maybe a new 2nd string keeper coming in, Casper then becoming 3rd place.

Dicker, yes a great player for Brighton, we will do well to hold onto him as I am sure others would like to take him away.

Tough game ahead against Forest, I wonder if we will start with the attacking line up we had last week.
