Football - Greer in fitness race

Brighton skipper Gordon Greer could return from injury for the Boxing Day trip to Charlton.

Defender Greer has missed the last two matches with a calf problem and boss Oscar Garcia will assess his fitness this week.

Midfielder Andrea Orlandi is also close to returning from a knee injury and could make the bench in place of winger Kazenga LuaLua, who misses out through suspension.

Goalkeeper Tomasz Kuszczak is fit after a stomach muscle injury but his deputy Peter Brezovan is set to keep his place after back-to-back clean sheets.
