Keane Lewis-Potter is back and available for selection after missing the last few weeks with a foot injury, Thomas Frank has confirmed.

The Bees boss added that Thomas Strakosha, Pontus Jansson and Christian Norgaard are unavailable, but the latter is back on the grass after he did not require surgery.

“Two will still remain sidelined - Pontus and Norgaard," Frank said.

"The good news is that Keane Lewis-Potter is available for selection. I just need to decide if he’ll be in the squad or not."

On Norgaard, Frank added: “He hasn’t had surgery. He’s on the grass running now, which is very positive. We hope he’ll go in the right direction. We’re quite confident he’ll be back by November time."

Strakosha is also out and Frank stated: “He made an unbelievable penalty save and got very unfortunate to get injured with an ankle ligament injury in training, so he’s out for two weeks.”

Frank wants to use Friday night's game under the lights against Brighton as an opportunity to bounce back from last weekend's 5-1 defeat to Newcastle United.

“A home game, under the floodlights at the Gtech Community Stadium, is hopefully a big advantage to us," Frank said.

“We know the fans are amazing - it’s up to us to also create some energy so we can bounce that off each other and come flying out. That’s extremely important.

“Brighton are a very good team so we have to come out and bounce back.”

He added: “Good teams bounce back from a big defeat or bad performance, and I’ve seen us do that several times over the years because we are not Manchester City or Arsenal at this moment in time that are winning eight out of ten games, and then drawing one and losing one.

“Sometimes we have to bounce back but I think that shows the true character of a team. Working with these players, some of them for over four years, they are an incredible group of players and we develop as a team and squad.

“I can see the frustration and anger in their eyes after the defeat on Saturday, as well as the determination and energy they came in with this week.”
