Albion boss Chris Hughton has vowed the club will be working hard during the loan transfer window to ease their wing headaches.

The emergency loan window opens today with Hughton currently starved of natural width.

Solly March is expected to miss tonight’s trip to Cardiff with a calf wound and Kazenga LuaLua is only just back from ten weeks out with knee trouble.

Sam Baldock, who had been filling in on the left-wing, missed Saturday’s home defeat by Nottingham Forest with a minor hamstring injury and Hughton has been using full-back Inigo Calderon on the right flank.

Hughton told The Argus: “I anticipate that we will be working hard for something to happen.

“It’s the same circumstances as before. It has got to be the right player for us and the right conditions for us.

“We’ll be working as hard as we can and you have to.

“We’ll be no different to any other club in the division, determining if and where we would like to strengthen.

“It is no secret that Kazenga had been out for a while and is just on his way back.

“Solly March has now got a whack, so we will be working as hard as we can on that one.”

Albion’s hopes of re-signing Elliott Bennett from Norwich were dashed during the last hours of the January transfer window when a move for fellow former Seagull Craig Noone from Cardiff to the Canaries collapsed.

Bennett is back on the sidelines at Norwich with hamstring irritation. Noone, meanwhile, is likely to maintain his record of regularly starting home matches for Cardiff against Albion this evening.
