Football - Seagulls wait on Will

Brighton boss Gus Poyet hopes to have Will Buckley available for the trip to Ipswich.

The midfielder, who scored the Seagulls' equaliser the last time the clubs met, missed the 3-1 defeat to Watford on Saturday evening due to a hamstring complaint and will be assessed ahead of kick-off.

Andrea Orlandi played just under an hour on his return from a rib injury and will hope to keep his starting place, while fellow midfielder Gary Dicker was an unused substitute following a knee problem that had kept him sidelined for a month.

Right-back Bruno also returned to the line-up after overcoming an Achilles issue and should continue in the side.

Poyet's men have gone five games without a win and are six points off the play-off places.
