PREVIEW: MARCH ONLY DOUBT FOR DERBY

14 February 2019

Kieran Cleeves
Solly March is the only fresh doubt for Saturday's game.

Brighton & Hove Albion welcome Derby County to the Amex Stadium on Saturday afternoon, kick-off 12.30pm, as Chris Hughton’s side look to reach the quarter-finals of the Emirates FA Cup for a second season in a row.

The Seagulls reached the last 16 after beating AFC Bournemouth 3-1 in the third round of the competition, before sealing another 3-1 victory over West Bromwich Albion, after the initial fourth-round tie ended goalless and went to a replay at the Hawthorns.

Derby’s route to the fifth round began with a penalty-shootout victory over Southampton, following 2-2 draws at both Pride Park and St Mary’s, before edging past Sky Bet League One opponents Accrington Stanley, thanks to a 1-0 win at the Crown Ground.

Albion are unbeaten in their last five matches against the Rams, having taken nine points from matches in the Sky Bet Championship before sealing promotion to the Premier League in 2017.

TEAM NEWS

The manager revealed that Solly March is the only fresh doubt heading into the game after coming off injured in the match against Burnley last Saturday, while Jose Izquierdo is back in training after recovering from a knee injury.

Rams captain Curtis Davies and defender Marcus Olsson are both long-term absentees for Lampard's men, with achilles and knee injuries respectively. Goalkeeper Scott Carson is also a doubt with a thigh problem.




FORM

The Seagulls
will be keen to rediscover their positive touch at the Amex on Saturday afternoon, having gone four matches without a victory on the south coast.

Since beating Everton 1-0 towards the end of December, Albion's only victories have come in the FA Cup, alongside draws against West Ham United, West Bromwich Albion and Watford.

Two impressive goalkeeping displays have prevented the Seagulls from taking more points from their previous two matches at the Amex, and Kelle Roos is likely to be in charge of stopping Hughton's side this weekend.

The Rams
head to the Amex on the back of a six-match unbeaten run in league and cup competitions, but Frank Lampard's side were denied all three points at Portman Road on Wednesday night.

Tom Lawrence opened the scoring against Ipswich Town, but the hosts levelled in the second half to keep Derby in seventh position in the Championship after 31 matches.

As well as their victories in the FA Cup, the Rams have sealed wins against Reading and Hull City, with their last defeat coming against table-topping Leeds United at Elland Road.



LAST TIME WE MET

Albion picked up another three points on their charge towards promotion back in 2017, as goals from Anthony Knockaert, Sam Baldock and Glenn Murray sealed a 3-0 victory.

Knockaert opened the scoring for the Seagulls in the fifth minute, as he rifled the ball into the bottom corner from 25 yards, and Baldock extended the lead shortly before half-time from close range.

Murray arrived in the box to prod home Knockaert’s cross in the closing stages, and the victory moved Albion six points clear of third-placed Huddersfield Town with nine games remaining.

Subs not used: Ravas (GK), Wisdom, Cole, Huddlestone.



PLAYER TO WATCH: Harry Wilson

The winger, who joined the Rams from Liverpool on loan after signing a new five-year deal with the Reds at the start of the season, has been Derby’s stand-out performer over the course of the campaign so far.

Wilson’s ten goals in 24 league appearances has helped Lampard’s side challenge towards the top end of the Championship table.

The 21-year-old also curled in a wonderful free kick against Manchester United at Old Trafford in the Carabao Cup, but the Rams ended up bowing out of the competition in the next round at Stamford Bridge.

Wilson’s goal - another free kick - and assist against Southampton in the fourth round of the FA Cup provide crucial at St Mary’s, and his ability from set-pieces is something the Seagulls will need to be wary of this weekend.

Anthony Knockaert celebrates scoring against Derby County.
  • Albion progress to the Emirates FA Cup quarter-finals
  • Anthony Knockaert and Jurgen Locadia on target for the Seagulls
  • Ashley Cole scores for Derby
  • Chris Hughton’s men will find out their next opponents on Monday night
Brighton & Hove Albion advanced to the Emirates FA Cup quarter-finals with a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Derby County at the Amex Stadium.
 
A goal each from Anthony Knockaert and Jurgen Locadia was enough to overcome the Rams, who scored what proved to be only a consolation through substitute Ashley Cole in the closing stages.
 
It wasn’t all good news for Albion though, as Locadia went off injured in the second half, and Yves Bissouma will miss the quarter-final tie through suspension after picking up his second yellow card in the competition.
 
Chris Hughton made eight changes to the side that lost 3-1 to Burnley, with only Shane Duffy, Dale Stephens and Locadia remaining from the starting line-up that faced the Clarets.
 
Albion had their first chance when Rams keeper Kelle Roos pushed Anthony Knockaert’s free kick from a central position over the crossbar.
 
Bissouma was next to come close from a set-piece, as Roos pushed away the Malian’s effort at his near post, in an otherwise cagey opening 25 minutes to the game.
 
The midfielder had another opportunity to break the deadlock after Beram Kayal teed him up on the angle, but his shot went comfortably wide.
 
Knockaert tested Roos again after drifting into a central position, as his left-footed strike was pushed away by the Derby shot-stopper.
 


But the Frenchman got his name on the scoresheet in the 33rd minute, as he fired home a first-time effort from Bissouma’s low cross to give Albion the lead.
 
Hughton’s men pressed for a second and this time Knockaert turned provider for Duffy after he drifted a corner into the box, but the Irishman headed wide.
 
Albion doubled their lead in first-half stoppage time after Bissouma’s brilliant curling shot cannoned off the post and Locadia had the simple task of firing home the rebound from close range into an empty net.
 
Derby could’ve halved the deficit when Jack Marriott’s close-range shot was headed away by Shane Duffy shortly after the break, following the midfielder's introduction for the second half.
 
Knockaert was denied a chance to get his second and Albion’s third after driving through on goal, but his low strike was pushed away by Roos.
 
It was almost 3-0 when Duffy headed Knockaert’s corner back across goal into the path of Bernardo, whose acrobatic attempt was blocked on the goal line.

 
Locadia was forced off injured with just under ten minutes remaining, with Viktor Gyokeres coming on to replace the forward just seconds before Derby halved the deficit.
 
Substitute Cole reacted quickest to Dan Burn’s short clearance inside the box and directed his header past David Button to set up a nervy finish for Hughton’s men.
 
Another substitute had a chance to wrap the game for Albion, as Viktor Gyokeres raced through on goal, but the angle proved to be too narrow for the Swede and Roos made a comfortable save at his near post.
 
There was still time for one final scare in stoppage time, as Button spilled an in-swinging cross before clawing it away into the path of Harry Wilson. The Rams midfielder scuffed his effort and Albion held on to secure back-to-back FA Cup quarter-finals for the first time in the club's history.
 
ALBION: Button; Bruno, Duffy, Burn, Bernardo; Stephens, Bissouma (Gross 86); , Kayal; Knockaert, Locadia (Gyokeres 81), Jahanbakhsh.
 
SUBS NOT USED: Sanchez (GK), Bong, Montoya, Ostigard, Molumby.
