LuaLua in contention for Seagulls bow

12 February 2010 09:39
Kazenga LuaLua is in line to make his Brighton debut against table-toppers Norwich at the Withdean. The winger, the younger brother of former Newcastle and Portsmouth forward Lomana LuaLua, has joined the Seagulls on a month's loan from the Magpies. Boss Gus Poyet must decide whether to start with the 19-year-old or stick with the side which secured an encouraging goalless draw with Huddersfield in midweek. Poyet has no fresh injury worries and welcomes back defender Adam El-Abd after five weeks out with a broken metatarsal. El-Abd could be named on the bench, taking the place of centre-half James Tunnicliffe who has joined MK Dons on loan. Defender Colin Hawkins (heel) is the only long-term absentee while striker Nicky Forster is likely to sit out again after a contract row.M
