It looks like Argentine Fabriocio Coloccini will miss his first league game of the season on Wednesday night against QPR.
Coloccini – will miss QPR game
Chris Hughton was forced to take off the £10M defender as well as the in-form Ryan Taylor during the 4-0 demolition of Ipswich on Saturday.
And there is also a chance that right-back Danny Simpson may still not be fit, as the right-back is still not 100% fit, after suffering an ankle injury against Plymouth Argyle nine days ago.
If Danny had been fit then Khizanishvili could have moved to center-back and Danny could have come in at right back.
And Argentine winger Jonas Gutierrez, who was training last week, could be fit for Wednesday night’s game.
Hughton told the Evening Chronicle today:
“As ever we will be assessing everybody as we go along.”
“Ryan has been suffering with a little tightness in his calf and is a doubt. But Fabricio looks the more doubtful of the two and we are probably more hopeful on Ryan.”
“Danny Simpson has got a chance but he is again touch and go. And providing Jonas gets through the next few days without any problems, he could also be back against QPR.”
And of course Coloccini and Jonas have both been named by Diego Maradona for the crunch World Cup qualifiers against Peru and Uruguay three days later.
