Brighton & Hove Albion manager Graham Potter provided a totally positive update on Tariq Lamptey’s fitness on Wednesday.

Seagulls stand out

Right-back Lamptey, of course, has endured something of a nightmare stretch on the injury front for the past nine months.

The English talent, after moving to the South Coast in January last year, got off to a wonderful start to their first full season in the Brighton colors.

The 20-year-old quickly established himself as the first choice on the Seagulls’ right side of the bottom line, lighting up the Premier League thanks to an impressive combination of pace, tact and frankness.

A goal and an assist to show for his early season efforts even saw Lamptey, at one point, called as a priority objective of Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal.

FPL bosses take note: update on Tariq Lamptey's injury as Graham Potter hints at return date

The upward trajectory of the young man, however, came to a halt last December.

During a meeting with Fulham, Lamptey suffered a serious knee injury, which has kept the stopper on the sidelines ever since.

‘It happened well’

As such, with his team having enjoyed a solid start to the new campaign, the Brighton faithful are certainly eager to see their talented up-and-comers add more options to the options available to Chief Potter in the not-too-distant future.

And, if the latest comments from none other than Potter himself are something to follow, then Gulls supporters shouldn’t have to wait much longer for precisely that.

Speaking at a Fan Forum event on Wednesday night, unsurprisingly, the Brighton boss was asked about the latest news on Lamptey’s availability.

And the strategist continued to explain:

“Tariq played an 11v11 inside game on Tuesday for 20 minutes and it went well, he did really well.”

Not only that, but, crucially, Potter went on to hint at a possible competitive comeback date for the 20-year-old:

“Without setting a definite time scale, there is a possibility that he will be involved in the Carabao Cup match against Swansea City on September 22.”
