U23 PREVIEW: THE SEAGULLS FLY TO THE PILOT FIELD

11 December 2018

Brighton & Hove Albion’s under-23s travel to Hastings United in the Sussex Senior Cup this evening, as they look to progress to the fourth round of the competition at The Pilot Field, kick-off 7.45pm.

The Seagulls were in Premier League 2 Division 1 action against Leicester City last night, but Simon Rusk’s team were narrowly beaten 1-0 after Josh Knight’s first-half header for the Foxes.

But attention turns to retaining the Sussex Senior Cup tonight — a competition the Seagulls have won in both of the last two seasons —and Rusk is expected to use a mixture of players from the under-23s and under-18s.



Albion made it to the third round thanks to Josh Kerr’s 90th-minute goal against Lewes at the Dripping Pan, which secured a 1-0 victory after a tight match against Darren Freeman’s team.

The Arrows have also played just one match in the competition so far, and Chris Agutter’s side managed to seal a 4-2 win against Saltdean United to set up tonight’s game against the Seagulls.

Hastings are five games without victory, losing three games consecutively in the Bostik League South East Division, but the Arrows still find themselves in second position after 15 matches.

Albion missed out on the opportunity of climbing the Premier League 2 Division 1 table, but Rusk’s young side travel to West Ham United on Saturday looking to finish December with a positive result.

Supporters can follow a live text blog from tonight’s game on the Match Centre, with a report and gallery to be uploaded to the website after the full-time whistle.

Tickets for the game will be available on the gate at The Pilot Field. Prices for the match are listed below:

Adults £10
Concessions (Over-65s, 16 and 17 year-olds) £6
Under-16s FREE

U23 REPORT: HASTINGS UNITED 0 ALBION 4

11 December 2018

Paul Hazlewood
Danny Cashman opens the scoring against Hastings United.
  • Albion seal comfortable victory over Hastings United
  • Danny Cashman opens the scoring
  • Stefan Ljubicic nets twice after the break
  • Ryan Longman adds fourth late on

Brighton & Hove Albion’s under-23s sealed their place in the quarter finals of the Sussex Senior Cup with a 4-0 victory over Hastings United at The Pilot Field.

Danny Cashman found the back of the net to get the ball rolling, before Stefan Ljubicic’s second-half brace and Ryan Longman’s thunderous fourth rounded off a commanding performance from the Seagulls.

Alex Cochrane raced down the left wing to create Albion’s first chance of the game, but Cashman’s first-time effort from his team-mate’s low cross flew straight into the arms of Charlie Horlock.

The hosts were inches away from taking the lead soon after when Antonio Walker-Barth trickled a shot back across goal to beat Hugo Keto, but Josh Kerr raced back to make a vital clearance off the line.



The Seagulls gradually managed to get on top of their opponents and opened the scoring in the 25th minute through Cashman, after the striker flicked Kerr’s header over the line from close range.

Peter Gwargis had a good chance to double Albion’s lead on the hour mark when he fired towards the bottom corner from Cashman’s square pass, but Horlock denied the winger to his left-hand side.

Gwargis then saw a powerful effort tipped over the crossbar and Roberts had a close-range effort cleared off the line, before Jack Dixon’s swerving strike from distance almost caught out Keto.

Simon Rusk’s team returned for the second half and again it was Cashman causing problems inside the Hastings penalty area, as the striker’s fierce drive cannoned back off the post after Horlock parried a long-range effort.



The Arrows offered little going forward and Keto remained untested, and that allowed Albion to press forward in search of a second goal, which came following a defence-splitting pass in the 70th minute.

Teddy Jenks showed composure to get his head up and slip a brilliant pass in behind the Hastings defence to release Ljubicic, and the Icelandic forward cooly finished past Horlock to extend Albion’s lead.

Five minutes later and Ljubicic bagged his second goal of the game, as he raced into the penalty area and slotted home from Joe Tomlinson’s low-driven cross, which effectively put the game out of sight.

There was still time for a fourth goal in the 90th minute, as Longman shifted the ball onto his right foot and drilled a ferocious effort beyond Horlock to make it 4-0 and confirm Albion’s progress to the next round.

ALBION: Keto; Tomlinson, Kerr, O’Hora, Cochrane; Gwargis, Roberts (Packham 82), Jenks (Spong 78), Longman; Cashman, Ljubicic (Tolaj 86).

Subs not used: Collings (GK), Lopata.
