GROSS AND MARCH AVAILABLE FOR SELECTION

15 April 2019

Paul Hazlewood
Pascal Gross and Solly March are both available for selection.

Brighton & Hove Albion play their second home match in the space of four days on Tuesday evening, when Cardiff City visit the Amex Stadium, kick-off 7.45pm.

Albion will aim to end a run of four defeats in a row in all competitions, as the Seagulls face a Cardiff side occupying the final relegation place.

Both teams head into the match on the back of losses, as Albion were beaten 5-0 by AFC Bournemouth and Cardiff City lost 2-0 at Burnley on Saturday.

TEAM NEWS

Anthony Knockaert will serve the first game of a three-match suspension after his sending off against Bournemouth on Saturday, while Pascal Gross and Solly March are both fit and available for the match.

Sol Bamba is a long-term absentee for the Bluebirds with a knee injury, while Alex Smithies (knee), Jazz Richards (hamstring), Matthew Connolly and Callum Paterson (both ankle) are also ruled out.

FORM

The Seagulls will be looking to arrest a run of four consecutive defeats, after losses to Southampton, Chelsea, Manchester City and Bournemouth respectively.

This sequence of results followed back-to-back wins over Huddersfield Town and Crystal Palace, along with the penalty shoot-out win against Millwall in the Emirates FA Cup quarter-finals.

The Bluebirds head into Tuesday night’s game after three successive losses to Chelsea, Manchester City and Burnley.

That run came after a 2-0 win over West Ham United and a defeat by the same scoreline to Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux.

LAST TIME WE MET

Albion were beaten 2-1 by Cardiff City in this season’s reverse fixture in South Wales.

Lewis Dunk headed Albion in front, after he arrived at the back post to meet Solly March’s free kick with a downward header that beat Neil Etheridge.

That lead was wiped out in the 27th minute through Paterson, after Kadeem Harris’s cross took a deflection off Gaetan Bong and the Bluebirds frontman headed home past Maty Ryan.

The Seagulls were then reduced to ten men after Dale Stephens was shown a straight red card for a challenge on Greg Cunningham.

Bamba scored the decisive second goal in stoppage time following a frantic spell of play inside Albion's penalty area, which saw the ball strike the woodwork twice.

Camarasa-F.jpg

PLAYER TO WATCH: VICTOR CAMARASA

The 24-year-old, currently on loan from La Liga side Real Betis, is likely to be one of the Bluebirds’ key attacking threats on Tuesday night.

The Spaniard has scored a number of key goals for Warnock’s side this season, scoring the winner in a surprise 1-0 win away at Leicester City in December, and in their most recent Premier League victory at home to West Ham.

He most recently found the net in a 2-1 defeat to Chelsea, and will also look to cause the Albion defence problems from corners and set-pieces.

Glenn Murray in action against Cardiff.
  • Albion are beaten 2-0 by Cardiff City
  • Nathaniel Mendez-Laing and Sean Morrison score for Cardiff
  • Glenn Murray hits the post late on
  • The Seagulls are next in action against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday

Brighton & Hove Albion succumbed to another defeat after losing 2-0 to Cardiff City in a bottom-of-the-table clash at the Amex Stadium.

A goal in each half from Nathaniel Mendez-Laing and Sean Morrison secured all three points for the Bluebirds, who moved to within two points of Albion in 17th place.

Chris Hughton made five changes to the side that lost 5-0 to AFC Bournemouth on Saturday, with Bruno returning to captain the team.

Glenn Murray replaced Florin Andone to lead the line, while Pascal Gross made his return from injury as Albion switched to a 4-4-2 formation.

Alireza Jahanbakhsh and Solly March lined up on the wings for the Seagulls, replacing Anthony Knockaert and Jurgen Locadia respectively.

Albion started the game brightly, as March hit the side-netting and Murray almost beat City goalkeeper Neil Etheridge inside the opening exchanges.

Joe Ralls had the first opportunity for Cardiff, but his shot dropped just wide of the target, before the Seagulls had an excellent penalty shout turned down.

Bruno Ecuele Manga appeared to bring down Lewis Dunk inside the penalty area, and despite the centre-back’s protests, referee Andre Marriner waved play on.

Despite Albion’s fast start, Mendez-Laing gave the visitors the lead with 22 minutes played with an unstoppable right-footed curling strike after some good link-up play with Junior Hoilett.

Stephens Cardiff.jpg

Dale Stephens looked to get a quick equaliser for the Seagulls, but his effort was blocked, before Shane Duffy headed straight at Neil Etheridge from the subsequent set-piece.

Cardiff had a chance to double their advantage shortly before the interval, but Aron Gunnarsson headed over from Victor Camarasa’s corner.

Hughton’s men were dealt a hammer blow five minutes after the re-start when Morrison rose highest in the box and headed the ball past Maty Ryan from Camarasa’s free kick.

Florin Andone entered the fray in place of Pascal Gross with 20 minutes remaining, and he teed up Murray on the edge of the box, only for the latter to fire agonisingly over the bar.

The Romanian was involved in the thick of the action again moments later after linking up well with fellow substitute Jose Izquierdo, but his shot was blocked at the last moment.

Albion continued to push forward to gain any sort of foothold in the contest, but Murray hit the post late on with a header and the game finished 2-0.

ALBION: Ryan; Bruno, Duffy, Dunk, Bernardo; March, Stephens, Propper, Jahanbakhsh (Izquierdo 69); Gross (Andone 54); Murray.

SUBS NOT USED: Button (GK), Bong, Burn, Kayal, Locadia.
