Poyet welcomes timely break

Poyet welcomes timely break

Gus Poyet has welcomed the two week international break as he sets his sights on a return to top form with a full strength squad at his disposal.

Middlesbrough are up next for the Seagulls, and Poyet could have a host of players back amongst his options by that point - notably Craig Mackail-Smith, Andrew Crofts and Vicente, all of whom have missed a number of recent games through injury.

Will Hoskins could also provide another option up-front, as he recovers from a broken foot, and Poyet is relishing the return of some key personnel after a difficult week that has seen Albion pick up just 2 points from a possible 9.

He told the Argus, "The difference is we are going to have Crofty, we are going to have Macca, probably Vicente, a fully recovered Bruno and Bucker, so it will be a different team and we can go into the next game with plenty of options. Let's see if we can do a bit better."

"I think we are nicely placed and we are doing what we want. We are in a great position with 18 points from ten games. It's up to us. The fitness is alright, the players are confident. Let's see if we can keep going."
