Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Andrew Crofts has been praised by the club's medical staff and remains on course for a pre-season return. 

The talismanic midfielder's knee surgery to repair his anterior cruciate ligament went to plan and his currently working with Albion's new head physiotherapist Adam Brett to strengthen the knee. 


He is off crutches and aims to be back running within the next two months, gradually working up to outdoor running using a specialist anti-gravity treadmill. 

Club doctor Helge Riepenhof commented, "Crofty is making great strides and has shown real resolve and mental strength to come through a difficult period. He still has some way to go, but these are encouraging early signs."

Meanwhile Will Hoskins is edging nearer to a first-team return, and is set for a 50-60-minute run-out on Monday afternoon at Bristol City for the under-21s. 

Elsewhere, Craig Mackail-Smith continues to progress after his return to match action was slowed with a minor injury. Monday is likely to come too soon for the striker, but he too is close to a return.
