Brighton forward Will Hoskins is poised to return to full training for the first time this season.

The 26-year-old has finally recovered from the broken foot he suffered during pre-season, but manager Gus Poyet does not expect Hoskins to be challenging for a place in the squad when Albion host Middlesbrough on Saturday.

Poyet told the Argus: "Last week he was doing everything you can do but on his own - sprinting, jumping, turning, kicking the ball, passing. From Tuesday he joins in with the team. That doesn't mean he is going to be available to play straight away."
