Cape Town - Brighton are waiting on the results of a scan on Jurgen Locadia who damaged his ankle in the FA Cup win over Derby on Saturday.
Brighton boss Chris Hughton said at the time the injury looked sore
but the club have now revealed the frontman will go for a scan to
determine if he will be available for the trip to King Power Stadium on
February 26 to take on Leicester City.
With injuries elsewhere in the squad – and Florin Andone completing
his three-match suspension – Hughton faces a striker crisis ahead of the
game against the Foxes.
Top scorer Glenn Murray picked up a calf injury in training on Friday
which saw him miss the win over the Rams, as did Lewis Dunk who also
has a knock, and the boss says the pair will be working hard this week
to be fit to play on February 26.
Hughton said of Murray: "He just felt his calf very slightly, but
certainly enough, the same with Dunky, for him not to be available.
"And then we will push as hard as we can to get them fit for the Leicester game."
