Brighton coach, GRAHAM POTTER says Super Eagles defender, Leon Balogun remains an ‘important’ member of his squad as he battles back to fitness.
The center-half played in Albion’s Carabao Cup win at Bristol Rovers last month but has been ruled out of tonight’s match against Aston Villa after he came back from international duty with Nigeria complaining of tightness in the groin area.
Potter said: “He is probably having a bit of a bad time at the moment because he’s not healthy, and that’s the most important thing.
“You cannot do anything about things if you’re not on the pitch so we have to just focus on getting him back training as soon as we can and also as safely as we can.
“Then football decides who is out on the pitch.
