Bridcutt back for Seagulls
Brighton and Hove Albion,
Liam Bridcutt returns to the Brighton squad for the trip to West Ham.
The midfielder has sat out the last two matches through suspension after collecting 10 yellow cards this season. Brighton lost both those games so Bridcutt has a good chance of an instant recall. Winger Craig Noone will be checked over having missed Tuesday's defeat by Reading to rest a hamstring problem, while full-back Joe Mattock is back in training after an injury ruled him out in midweek. Defender Tommy Elphick is the only long-term absentee with an Achilles injury. Midfielder Gary Dicker will hope to keep his place having made two appearances since recovering from the broken leg he suffered against the Hammers in October.
