Soccer – Hughton keen to avoid injuries

Brighton boss Chris Hughton hopes he has the luxury of an injury-free squad for a hectic run of fixtures after the international break. The Seagulls face ten games in under six weeks, including matches against Crystal Palace, Liverpool and Chelsea, from mid-November onwards. Steve Sidwell has a back injury but he is the only Brighton player currently sidelined, with Hughton saying: "After the international break that's the time you want as many players available as possible. "That will be a testing time for everybody and it will certainly be about making sure you come through that period reasonably satisfied with it." Brighton are 12th in the table after picking up 12 points from their first ten Premier League games. They are 12/5 with bet365 to beat Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday and 2/1 to be relegated this season.
