Newcastle striker Andy Carroll set for Brighton chance

Newcastle United striker Andy Carroll is set to be named on the bench against Brighton this weekend.

It will be Carroll's second debut for Newcastle after joining as a free agent in the summer.

Carroll visited a specialist in London last week and was given the okay to speed up his recovery, according to the Daily Mail.

The former Liverpool man has trained well over the past two days, giving Steve Bruce enough confidence to include him in the match-day squad to face the Seagulls.
