Poyet fears over Dicker

CHAMPIONSHIP side Brighton are praying that Irish midfielder Gary Dicker's injury will not force him out of action long-term.

Former UCD man Dicker has been a key figure for Brighton this season but there were fears for the Dubliner when he was stretchered off eight minutes from the end of last night's Championship defeat to West Ham.

"We don't know yet. It was that kind of bad twist that we need to wait and check and get X-rays," said Brighton boss Gus Poyet.
