Quite literally it’s March no more, we’ve rolled into April, but it’s looking increasingly likely that we’ll not see Solly March again in action for Brighton this season due to an ongoing back injury.

Chris Hughton has told the BBC that as much as he’s ‘making progress’ in his bid to recover from his injury he’s not too hopeful that the 20-year-old will play again this season.

‘Solly is making progress

‘If there is any participation this season then I think it’s going to be minimal. Probably we are speaking about next season.’

March’s progress at the Amex Stadium not only earned him England U21 recognition last season it also brought him a new long-term contract a little over a year ago that takes him through until 2018 but it’s been a frustrating season for him, and us, with him limited to just 13 appearances this season, the last coming in early February.

Hughton is keen for him to have some involvement, even if it’s only a game or two before the season ends, and that’s the aim for all concerned but he also, which is understandable, revealed March’s obvious frustration.

‘If there is any way we can get him back before the end of the season, even if it is only an involvement in one or two games, we will try our best to do that.

‘It has been frustrating for him because he is a young player that really wants to be playing at this stage of his career. He is not someone who is used to being injured.’

The main thing is that we get Solly right, if that means waiting until next season so be it!

There’s no benefit to him, or us, if we rush him back too soon and more damage is caused. For the sake of a handful of games why risk hundreds ahead of him….
