Neal Ardley said “The news on Ben Hall has not been great.
“He rolled his ankle last week and that looks a long-term one.
“He was somebody who I enquired about in the summer before I came here.
“It would have been nice to have him back and pushing for a place, but it’s not to be unfortunately.
“We will speak to Brighton and see how we go about it.
“With it being long-term, I think he’s got to see a specialist and see what’s happened. It was very innocuous. There was nobody near him, he’s turned his ankle and it’s turned out to be a bad one.”
