Brighton miss Brown and Sidwell

Brighton & Hove Albion

Izzy Brown will be absent for Brighton's trip to struggling West Brom on Saturday, while Steve Sidwell has also suffered a setback.

On-loan Chelsea forward Brown sustained cruciate knee ligament damage in the early stages of Monday’s FA Cup win over Crystal Palace, cutting short his stay with the Seagulls, and he’s now been ruled out for the rest of the season.

Sidwell, who has not featured so far this season because of a back problem, has suffered a further setback by picking up an ankle complaint in training and remains Albion’s only other injury issue.

Provisional squad: Ryan, Krul, Maenpaa, Bong, Bruno, Hunemeier, Duffy, Dunk, Rosenior, Goldson, Schelotto, Suttner, Kayal, Propper, Skalak, Knockaert, Stephens, March, Izquierdo, Gross, Murray, Hemed, Baldock.
