Crofts back for Boro

Poyet has been handed a boost with the news that Andrew Crofts will be fit for Albion's forthcoming Championship fixture with Middlesbrough.

Albion begin a tough triple header after the international break, as they tackle a home tie with Middlesbrough, before away games at high-flying Leicester and Blackpool in the next two fixtures - and Poyet will be delighted to have Crofts back in the squad as he begins his preparations.

The industrious midfielder, re-signed from Norwich this summer, has been absent from the Seagulls' last 6 league fixtures, after picking up a hamstring injury during the side's 3-1 win overly Burnley. The 28-year-old has subsequently missed out on international duty with Wales for the first time in two years.

Poyet, speaking to the Argus, said of Crofts' delayed return, "He has never been injured like that before and maybe, because of the type of player Crofty is, he pushed it a little bit too much.

"I am looking forward to seeing him back, because he is totally different to what we have. If you need a goal he will give you a header, he will give you power.

"There are plenty of things he is going to give us, like also the experience of playing in the Premier League."

Elsewhere, leading marksman Craig Mackail-Smith is also set to return to action after the international break, as Boro visit the Amex on Saturday 20th October.
