Brighton manager Gus Poyet expects Will Buckley to shrug off a minor injury and be fit for Sunday's Championship visit of Barnsley.

Buckley: Expected to be fit

Buckley suffered a hamstring injury during the warm-up ahead of Saturday's goalless draw at Birmingham which ruled him out of the midweek visit to his former club Watford.

But boss Gus Poyet says the problem is not serious and expects the forward to be available by the weekend.

"It's not a bad injury for Will," said Poyet.

"He called it early so we will have to see what happens over the next few days, but he is likely to be available for Sunday."
