Agustin Battipiedi has made a surprise return to action with Albion.

  The Argentinian midfielder featured in the first half of the development squad's 3-1 victory at QPR this afternoon.

  Battipiedi, 23, made 13 first team appearances for the Seagulls in the 2010-11 season before spells at Eastbourne Borough and Dover.

  His second half replacement Anton Rodgers and George Barker had their first outings since the conclusion of their court case at the Old Bailey last week.

  Barker, a 53rd minute substitute, was one of the goalscorers as Albion staged a late recovery in the last ten minutes from 1-0 down.
