Football - Garcia: Break is welcome

Brighton boss Oscar Garcia admits the international break has come at a good time for his injury-hit squad.

PA Sport Report

The Seagulls are unbeaten in their last four matches despite a casualty list which has included key players such as Andrea Orlandi, Kazenga LuaLua, Liam Bridcutt, Craig Mackail-Smith, Kemy Agustien and Leonardo Ulloa.

But Bridcutt made his first appearance since August in Saturday's 3-0 win over Blackburn and fellow midfielders Orlandi and Agustien are edging closer to fitness ahead of the trip to Wigan on November 23.

"It is good timing for us because despite being on a good run, we do need the time to recover some players," Garcia said.

"I hope we may be able to get two or three back and available for selection against Wigan, and I am looking forward to when I am able to select the best 11 from a full squad.

"All of the players are working very hard to do everything that I ask of them and when we have a complete squad we will be able to play much better."
