THE Seagulls look certain to be without central defender Jordan Fagbola for Tuesday’s trip to fourth-placed Buxton after he had to be substituted at half-time with a tight hamstring in last Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Nantwich Town.
With Sam Barnes already sidelined with a torn hamstring, the Seagulls could be without both their first choice centre backs.
Manager Ash Hoskin is also awaiting news of left back Mike Lea who had to pull out of Saturday’s game due to illness.
Buxton, who include former Colwyn Bay players Tom Buckley and Joel Bembo-Leta in their squad, have been going well recently and they made solid progress in the FA Cup with a commanding 6-1 away victory at the weekend helped by a hat-trick from top scorer Liam Hardy.
Their reward for that result is a money-spinning tie away to FC United of Manchester in the next round.
