Hoskins Marks Return With A Goal

Will Hoskins marked his Brighton return to competitive action with a goal in a cameo appearance for the development side on Monday.

Two cruciate operations and almost a year out of the game saw Hoskins started the game against Bristol City, with him playing for the opening half an hour and in that time he not only scored he could have scored others.

The striker, as you'd expect, was disappointed not to have scored more than the one he got but told the official website that he was 'chuffed' overall with his return and will look to the positives of his performance.

'For my first game back I'm more than chuffed. Mentally you always want everything to go right and today it couldn't have gone much better.

'My main focus was to hit the target because it's what I like to do, it's what I enjoy, so it was brilliant to score.

'It could have been more, but it's about getting the rustiness out now. I hit the back of the net so I'll take the positives and won't dwell on the missed chances.'

Hoskins has worked hard to get back to where he is, this was a big step up for him and he felt the effects of it after the game but his desire to get himself back has always spurred him on and this remains the case.

He'll be needing a good few development games, and some hard graft in training, but as long as he doesn't suffer any setback Oscar will be looking at bringing him back into the first team before the season is out.

A return will only come when he's fully ready, we're talking weeks maybe even a couple of months, but he has a chance of playing some part before the Championship season ends all being well.
