If Will Hoskins had returned to action for Brighton this season, even for the final embers of the season, some might have been surprised but it is possible he could be back to play a part in our promotion push?

Hoskins suffered a serious knee injury almost a year ago, but not expected to be back in training for another three-months yet he’s given Albion a boost by declaring that he could returning to training on Thursday.

The striker was put through his paces on Wednesday and used Twitter to announce that, all being well, he’ll be back in training tomorrow.

‘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.’

Even if Hoskins does return to training he’ll still be someway from making his Albion first team return, but with him so far ahead of schedule he could become something of a secret weapon as the season goes on that could make the difference between us getting promoted or not perhaps?

Another person that might hope to have some involvement before the season is out is Jeffrey Monakana, and he gave Albion fans the first glimpses of what he’s capable of in the win over Eastbourne in the Sussex Senior Cup on Tuesday.
