Hoskins set for return

Brighton striker Will Hoskins is poised to return to training after almost a year on the sidelines.

The 27-year-old has not featured for the Seagulls since he suffered a serious knee injury against Blackburn last February.

He wrote on Twitter: "Great day today. Twisting and turning.

"Hopefully no reaction and then back into training for the first time tomorrow.

"So thankful for the ones that have been there for me through this bad time. Helped me progress back to training three months ahead of schedule."

The news provides a double boost to boss Oscar Garcia as Hoskins' fellow forward Craig Mackail-Smith recently resumed training for the first time this season after an Achilles injury.
