Match Preview

Seagulls to check on duo Rohan Ince and Andrea Orlandi are injury doubts for Brighton ahead of the visit of play-off rivals Reading. Ince missed the 1-0 win at Millwall last weekend with an ankle problem and Orlandi has sustained a thigh injury. With fellow midfielder Andrew Crofts out for the season with a cruciate injury, boss Oscar Garcia is short of options in the centre and may hand a recall to Jake Forster-Caskey. Winger Will Buckley is fit after his recent hamstring problems but strikers Will Hoskins (knee) and Craig Mackail-Smith (groin) are still building up their fitness following long-term lay-offs. Wayne Bridge and Sean Morrison are unlikely to be risked when Reading head to the Amex Stadium. Left-back Bridge, who played for the Seagulls last season, has been out since October with a knee problem and centre-half Morrison damaged knee ligaments in November. Both have resumed training recently but boss Nigel Adkins will wait until they are fully fit before bringing them back in for the Sky Bet Championship run-in. Midfielder Mikele Leigertwood (ankle), striker Jason Roberts (hip) and winger Jem Karacan (cruciate) remain on the sidelines so Adkins has an unchanged squad.
