Brighton midfielder Davy Propper will be out for a number of weeks with an ankle injury.

The Dutch star sustained the injury against West Ham before the international break and in his pre-match press conference Albion boss Chris Hughton said: "Davy Propper will miss the game. He sustained an ankle injury in the last game. He'll be out for a period of weeks, how long that will be, we'll assess it."

Pascal Gross and Dale Stephens were ruled out through injury before the international break and asked if they could return at St James' Park, Hughton said: "We've got some decisions to make and they'll be late decisions.

"Pascal is just back training, Dale has been out and Gaetan Bong was away on international duty but didn't play. They're the three we'll make late decisions on."
