Problems mount for Seagulls

Brighton's injury problems are mounting for Monday's visit of Watford.

Winger Kazenga LuaLua is the latest casualty after suffering a knee injury which requires surgery and will keep him out for up to eight weeks.

He joins Liam Bridcutt (hernia), Andrea Orlandi, Will Hoskins (both knee), Craig Mackail-Smith (Achilles), Kemy Agustien (hamstring) and Leonardo Ulloa (foot) in a crowded treatment room.

Agustien, Bridcutt and Orlandi could be back early next month but Mackail-Smith and Ulloa are likely to be out until December and Hoskins is not expected to be available until spring at the earliest.

Watford boss Gianfranco Zola will assess a trio of players ahead of the trip.

Troy Deeney, Ikechi Anya and Almen Abdi are all battling to be fit for the Hornets who have lost two of their last three outings in the Sky Bet Championship.

Top scorer Deeney and Scotland international Anya are hopeful of recovering from calf problems that kept them out of the 3-2 defeat to Derby, while Abdi (foot) is back in training as he targets a first appearance since August.

Defender Davide Faraoni returns from a one-match ban having picked up his fifth booking of the season during the 2-1 win at Huddersfield.
