Brighton & Hove Albion wing-back Tariq Lamptey will return for Saturday’s Premier League trip to second-bottom West Bromwich Albion after being out for more than two months with a hamstring problem, manager Graham Potter said.
Lamptey sustained the injury in a Premier League match against Fulham on 16 December.
“Lamptey has trained again today, he’s had no problems and he’s had a good week,” Potter said. “He won’t start but there’s a chance for him to be in the group.”
Brighton will however be without centre-back Adam Webster until the end of March due to an ankle injury he picked up against Burnley earlier this month.
👊 @WBA up next…

“Webster is more towards after the international break,” Potter said. “We were optimistic initially but you always have to wait with ligament injuries and he’ll be a few more weeks than we thought.”
Brighton are 16th with 26 points after 25 games, four points above the relegation zone.
