GOOD EVENING FROM BRIGHTON
Welcome to our live coverage of the Premier League clash between Brighton and Crystal Palace at the Amex Stadium.
The Seagulls will look to put some more distance between them and the relegation zone but may have to do it without Adam Webster, who suffered a hamstring injury against Burnley three weeks ago.
Manager Graham Potter will also be missing Tariq Lamptey, who has been sidelined since December with a hamstring problem of his own.
Solly March had knee surgery earlier this month and Florin Andone is still working his way back from a serious knee injury.
But it’s not all doom and gloom for Brighton as Alireza Jahanbakhsh could make his long-awaited return since sustaining a hamstring injury last month.
Crystal Palace, on the other hand, are monitoring two unnamed players who suffered a knock against Burnley two weeks ago.
But Palace manager Roy Hodgson confirmed that James McCarthy returned to first-team training on Thursday having not featured since late January.
Star forward Wilfried Zaha is still dealing with a hamstring injury and Hodgson has refused to discuss any potential return dates for his talismanic winger.
The Crystal Palace boss said: “[Zaha] is still suffering from the injury, there’s no question of that. The doctors in particular and physios are very anxious to not put dates on people so they’d be very angry with me if I suggested dates he could return.
“He’s working very hard to get back as soon as he can. I’m rather hoping the prognosis will be different to the actual timescale”
