Sami Hyypia has no new injury concerns as Brighton & Hove Albion prepare to take on Burton Albion in the Capital One Cup third round tomorrow.
Dale Stephens and Solly March are still ruled out with long-term ankle and back injuries respectively, while Kemy Agustien is working his way back to match fitness but will not feature against the Brewers.
Hyypia told seagulls.co.uk, “Everyone is okay from the weekend. Kemy is training with us again, but the kind of fitness he needs where he can play games means he won’t be involved this week.
“I think both of them [Dale and Solly] need to go with how they feel. If we have to let them train a bit lighter then we will do that. If they can take all the load, then gradually we’ll increase it more and more and if they are okay, then at some stage they can join the team training. I think both of them are a few days from that.
“If you have a broken leg then you know it’s a six to eight week recovery time and after that you can put a load on it and go 100 per cent, but when you have the kind of injuries which Dale and Solly have then it’s a difficult situation for our medical staff to find the right load and the right things to do.
“We hope for the best and that it doesn’t get any worse as they are both good players and we could use them in the upcoming games.”
The Brewers are coming into the game after back-to-back league defeats to AFC Wimbledon and Bury. Leading scorer Lucas Atkins is a doubt after being forced off in the 3-0 loss at the Dons and subsequently missed Saturday’s match at Bury.
