Football - Gobern given green light

Huddersfield midfielder Oscar Gobern is expected to be available for the game at Brighton after he was replaced in midweek due to a clash of heads.

Gobern, making his first start since August following a ruptured Achilles tendon, was forced off during Tuesday night's win over Burnley after colliding with team-mate James Vaughan and receiving a bang on the nose.

But Gobern has not suffered a break and manager Mark Robins must decide whether to start with the 22-year-old again or stick with Scott Arfield, who replaced him at Turf Moor.

Robins has no other new injury or suspension problems, but is still without injured trio Danny Ward (broken metatarsal), Jermaine Beckford (hamstring) and Keith Southern (Achilles).

Defenders Jack Hunt and Joel Lynch, midfielder Oliver Norwood, plus striker Alan Lee are among those pushing for recalls as Town chase back-to-back wins for the first time since October.
