PREVIEW: ALBION V HUDDERSFIELD TOWN

5 April 2018

Kieran Cleeves
Albion welcome Huddersfield Town to the Amex Stadium this weekend.

Brighton & Hove Albion welcome Huddersfield Town to the Amex Stadium on Saturday afternoon - kick-off 3pm - and both sides will be looking to take a huge step towards Premier League safety.

The Seagulls are six points above the relegation zone with seven matches remaining, while the Terriers find themselves in 16th position, three points behind Albion and with one fewer game to play.

Chris Hughton’s team have lost three consecutive matches in league and cup competitions - but Saturday’s opponents are also desperate for a victory, having not won in their last four matches.

After Saturday’s game, Albion come up against four of the current top six in their remaining matches, while David Wagner’s team also have a difficult run-in, as they take on Chelsea, Manchester City and Arsenal.


TEAM NEWS:

Dale Stephens is still a doubt for this weekend's game, while Steve Sidwell (ankle and back) remains the only long-term absentee. Anthony Knockaert will serve the final game of a three-match suspension after picking up a red card against Everton.

Huddersfield will be without Jon Stankovic (ACL Knee), Michael Hefele (knee), Danny Williams (ankle) and Elias Kachunga (ankle).



REVERSE FIXTURE:

A first-half brace from Steve Mounie secured victory for the hosts when Albion travelled to the John Smith’s Stadium back in December, as the Terriers ran out 2-0 winners on the day.

The Seagulls never really got going, as Huddersfield’s quick start to the match left Hughton’s men with an uphill battle throughout - and Mathew Ryan made a string of fine saves to keep the score at 2-0.

The result came in the middle of a difficult run for the Seagulls in December, which saw them lose to Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur either side of their visit to Yorkshire.


FORM:

The Seagulls have lost back-to-back Premier League matches to Everton and Leicester City, either side of an Emirates FA Cup quarter-final defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Hughton’s team had previously strung together a run of seven matches without defeat, which included an impressive 2-1 victory over Arsenal at the Amex Stadium at the beginning of March.

February was an unbeaten month - which earned Hughton a Manager of the Month award - and the Seagulls scored 11 goals in four matches, as they beat Swansea City, Coventry City and West Ham United.

Mathew Ryan was the hero at the bet365 Stadium when Albion came up against Stoke City - the Australian saved a last-minute penalty to secure a share of the spoils in a 1-1 draw against the Potters.

The Terriers have lost back-to-back Premier League games to relegation rivals Crystal Palace and Newcastle United - most recently losing 1-0 at St James’ Park.

Swansea took home a point at the John Smith’s Stadium despite being down to ten men for the majority of the game, and Spurs sealed a comfortable 2-0 win at Wembley Stadium.

Consecutive league victories over AFC Bournemouth and West Bromwich Albion came beforehand, but Wagner’s men are desperate to get some more points on the board after not scoring in four matches.

PLAYER TO WATCH: Aaron Mooy

After joining the Terriers on a season-long loan from Manchester City at the beginning of last season, Mooy permanently moved to the Yorkshire club last summer for an initial £8 million fee, which could rise to £10 million.

The midfielder, who plays for Australia with Albion goalkeeper Mathew Ryan, made 45 league appearances for the Terriers last season, scoring four goals, and featured in all three of their play-off games.

The energetic 27-year-old has a wide range of passing in his locker but also knows where the back of the net is, as he proved in Huddersfield’s wins over Newcastle United, Manchester United and Watford this season.

Mooy has featured in 30 Premier League games for the Terriers this season, missing just two through injury, and also helped Australia reach the World Cup finals - taking his total of international caps to 32.

REPORT: ALBION 1 HUDDERSFIELD TOWN 1

7 April 2018

Paul Hazlewood
Jose Izquierdo on the attack against Huddersfield Town.

Brighton & Hove Albion played out a 1-1 draw against Huddersfield Town on Saturday afternoon at the Amex Stadium. 

A first-half strike from Solly March was immediately cancelled out by Steve Mounie in the opening period, and in the second half Davy Propper was shown a straight red card as both sides had to settle for a point.

Chris Hughton made two changes to the side that lost 2-0 to Leicester City seven days earlier on the south coast - Solly March replaced Jurgen Locadia and Dale Stephens returned to the starting line-up in place of Beram Kayal.

The home side had a glorious chance to go ahead inside the first minute. Ezequiel Schelotto’s perfectly-weighted ball over the top found the run of Propper in-behind – but the Dutchman fired agonisingly wide after being clean through on goal.

Albion’s superb start continued inside the opening few minutes – Propper’s sublime and deft skill ended with a cross being scrambled clear and March saw a fierce drive blocked.

Mounie’s volley was parried clear by Mathew Ryan at the other end in a frantic start to the game, before Glenn Murray glanced Gaetan Bong’s cross from the left over the bar.

Jose Izquierdo was thwarted by Jonas Lossl in the away goal after being found by Murray from the edge of the area, and the game looked to have quietened down after its lively opening.

But on 29 minutes, Solly March put the home side ahead. The midfielder picked up possession down on the right-hand side and cut in well before seeing his low effort hit the post and rebound in off Lossl.

But no sooner had the home side taken the lead, the game was level.

Shane Duffy’s misplaced back pass didn’t reach Lewis Dunk or Ryan, and Mounie nipped in to intercept and round the goalkeeper to put the away side back on level terms. 

Jonathan Hogg then saw his fierce drive from the edge of the area well blocked by Duffy, but that was the last meaningful action of an entertaining first half. 

The home side had the first big chance of the second period – as Dunk went close to re-handing Albion the advantage. March’s floated free-kick to the far post found the defender, but he skewed his header back across the face of goal and wide.

On the hour mark Albion went close to retaking the lead once more. Gross’s intelligent ball to the edge of the area was well laid off by Propper, and Stephens’ drive was tipped over by Lossl in one of the best moves of the match. 

Mounie headed Florent Hadergjonaj’s cross over the bar as the Terriers created their first chance of the half on 64 minutes, before Leonardo Ulloa replaced Murray with just over 25 minutes to play.

With the game approaching the final 15 minutes, Hughton’s side were reduced to ten men, as Propper was shown what looked to be a harsh red card as he challenged Hogg inside the Huddersfield half – it meant Kayal replaced Gross in the home side’s second change.

Izquierdo was then denied when he found himself one-one-one with Lossl, following Ulloa's defence-splitting pass, but the Terriers goalkeeper raced out to block before Schelotto's follow-up was tipped over.

Duffy’s header from the resulting corner was scrambled off the line, before the Irishman headed March’s second delivery agonisingly over the crossbar. 

That was the last action of the game on an eventful afternoon on the south coast – the result leaves Albion in 13th position in the Premier League with six matches of the campaign left to play.

Albion line-up: Ryan, Schelotto, Dunk ©, Duffy, Bong, March, Stephens, Propper (sent off 74), Izquierdo, Gross (Kayal 75), Murray (Ulloa 66).

Subs not used: Krul, Bruno, Goldson, Locadia, Baldock.

Huddersfield Town line-up: Lossl; Hadergjonaj, Jorgensen, Schindler, Kongolo; Ince (Depoitre 90), Hogg (Billing 80), Mooy, Van La Parra (Quaner 89); Pritchard; Mounie.
