Steve Sidwell

Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Steve Sidwell has undergone minor surgery to alleviate a recurring back injury - and as a result will be unavailable for the weekend visit of West Bromwich Albion.

The experienced midfielder underwent the successful surgical procedure this week, and he will now begin a rehabilitation period before returning to full training.

Manager Chris Hughton commented, "It's a minor procedure and it has been successful. In terms of a recovery period, that will become clearer in due course, but we don't expect Steve to be absent for a prolonged period."
