Former Dundalk star Richie Towell edges towards Brighton comeback

The midfielder has suffered a couple of injury setbacks since joining the south coast club.

Towell will be hoping to force his way into the Seagulls' matchday squad in the coming weeks.

BRIGHTON MANAGER CHRIS Hughton has confirmed Richie Towell is set to feature for Brighton’s U23 side tomorrow, as the midfielder steps up his comeback from injury.

The 25-year-old has been limited to just one league appearance since moving to the Championship club at the start of the year, with a knee injury hampering the midfielder’s progress in his first pre-season with the side.

However, the 2015 PFAI Player of the Year will be aiming to impress Hughton when he plays in the Premier League Cup match against Leicester City’s U23 side on Saturday.

“Kazenga LuaLua and Richie Towell are both on their way back, they’ll be involved in the U23 game on Saturday and hopefully again on Tuesday,” Highton said at his pre-match press conference.

“We’re in reasonably good health at the moment, but you know you won’t be at some stage, so you need as many fit players as possible. They’re both desperate to get back as well.”

Last month, Hughton suggested Towell, who scored 29 goals last season as Dundalk completed a league and cup double, may need to go out on loan to regain his match sharpness.

The Seagulls are currently flying high in the Championship table, just three points behind leaders Newcastle United, in second place.
