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."
