Glenn Murray looks set to lead the Seagulls attack in game week one as Jurgen Locadia struggles to shake off the groin problem he suffered at Wimbledon 10 days ago.
The Dutchman has been restricted to just six Premier League appearances since arriving at the club with a hamstring strain in January and was hoping for an injury-free pre-season, but a setback now means he is a major doubt for the trip to Watford. "Jurgen has felt something but he was very quick to go down," Chris Hughton revealed post-match. "He has come back in really good shape and we’re hopeful it’s nothing too bad." However, Locadia has not featured in any of the subsequent fixtures and he looks to be losing his race to be ready for August 11. On Tuesday, Florin Andone and Alireza Jahanbakhsh were handed their first minutes in a win over Nice, but the Brighton boss admitted both are still short of match fitness. "There’s a big question mark as to whether they’re both ready to start the first game. Having some involvement off the bench is more likely." Aug 1 - 9:39 AM
