Gross In Contention For Foxes Test

Gross In Contention For Foxes Test

Fit-again German midfielder Pascal Gross is in contention as Brighton prepare to face Leicester City on Saturday. Gross has not featured since the start of September due to an ankle problem.

 

Manager Chris Hughton, though, confirmed both Gross and Dutchman Davy Propper are back in the mix for the visit of the Foxes.

With Brighton looking to stop a run of successive defeats, Hughton accepts he now has plenty of options should he want to freshen up the team. “Pascal is a very fit lad – he’s clear of the injury now and he’s fit to start,” Hughton said at a press conference. “He’s ready to start against Leicester and that’s a decision I have to make.”

 

Meanwhile, the Seagulls remain without record signing Alireza Jahanbakhsh as he recovers from a hamstring problem.

 

Midfielder Dale Stephens starts a three-match suspension following his red card at Cardiff before the international break.
