Football - Bridcutt boost for Seagulls

Liam Bridcutt returns to the Brighton squad for the trip to Bristol City.

The midfielder has missed the last two matches through suspension after accumulating 10 yellow cards this season and should go straight back into the starting line-up.

Wayne Bridge is expected to miss out again with a tight hamstring so Inigo Calderon will deputise at left-back, as he did in Saturday's 4-1 win over Huddersfield.

Calderon's fellow Spaniard Vicente was rested at the weekend and could return to the squad, but striker Will Hoskins is still out with a knee problem.

Skipper Gordon Greer is fit after a hamstring injury but looks set to start on the bench again with Matt Upson and Adam El-Abd performing well at centre-half.
