Baldock back in contention for Brighton’s title chasers

Date published: Friday 28th April 2017 10:59 - admin

Brighton striker Sam Baldock could be ready to return this weekend against Bristol City, as Brighton look to secure the Sky Bet Championship title.

Baldock has missed the last six matches with a glute problem but is back in training and may play a part in what Albion hope will be a Championship title party.

Shane Duffy will miss out again after fracturing a metatarsal and is not expected to feature again until next season.

Fellow defender Connor Goldson remains sidelined after being diagnosed with a heart condition.

Bristol City are without Aaron Wilbraham as the veteran striker has been ruled out of the rest of the season with a knee problem.

Midfielder Gary O’Neil is also unlikely to play again in this campaign after picking up a hamstring injury at the start of April.

However, Mark Little showed no reaction to his hamstring concern in the 3-2 victory over Barnsley last weekend, and boss Lee Johnson could name an unchanged side.

The Robins will know before their Saturday evening kick-off whether they need a point to guarantee their Sky Bet Championship status.
