Brighton & Hove Albion boss Chris Hughton hopes to welcome back Andrew Crofts and Gordon Greer this week, and says Solly March's injury sustained at Crawley Town last week is not as serious as first feared.
The Albion manager, speaking after yesterday's 1-0 friendly defeat at Aberdeen, said, "We've got a few coming back, which is good. Crofty will hopefully play some part of a game this week.
"We have Gillingham on Wednesday and a game at the training ground on Thursday. We're hoping that he's going to play some part of a game this week.
"Also having Gordon Greer back will be a big plus for us. We haven't had a bad injury which is good. Even Solly March, who came off in the Crawley game, should not be out for too long.
"When he did it we knew he rolled his ankle and sometimes they're ones that go on for a lot longer, but we are anticipating he'll be involved at some stage this week."

Hughton also says Sam Baldock and Dale Stephens will play at Gillingham on Wednesday, adding, "Both players have had a good pre-season and look very sharp.
"We'll make sure we use these last two games against Gillingham and Seville, so we go into that first game with the correct preparation."
