Brighton are sweating over the fitness of defender Gaetan Bong after he was ruled out of action by Cameroon.
The 30-year-old has started seven of Brighton’s Premier League engagements this term but he could be set for an enforced break.
Bong was set to represent Cameroon in their Africa Cup of Nations qualifying double-header against Malawi, however, boss Clarence Seedorf has been unable to call on the left-back.

Cameroon are yet to confirm the full extent of the issue and Bong will need to be fully assessed when he returns to the south coast.
Brighton will be hoping Bong is available for their return to Premier League action when they travel to Newcastle on October 20.
