HUGHTON ON: LEEDS

16 October 2015




Chris Hughton discusses the trip to Elland Road, player form and injuries and the Seagulls facing familiar faces.

Injury latest

"Kazenga is close, at the moment he is still not close enough, but he is close. He has been able to do some good work outs but what he hasn't been able to do is train with the team yet. We’ll have a push for Tuesday but we'll be more optimistic that he will be ready the following Saturday. The internationals have generally been good, and it's great that they have all come back okay. It was good a few of them played, and Tomer scored for Israel, and I'm delighted that Gordon played."

Solly March's form in the last game against Cardiff City

"We all know the ability he's got, the nice thing for us is that we've predominantly used Solly on the right-hand side - but he is a natural left footer and we know he can play both sides, so from a confidence side of things I think that would have been great for him. The last 20 minutes of the game [against Cardiff], at that time, in that position, you know that the game is going to open up. I thought he was very good and he has been able to take that into the training."
Former Albion pair Chris Wood and Will Buckley

"They are one of a few threats, Chris is someone I know from my time at Birmingham, I certainly know what he can do. Will Buckley of course was at the club here, and again I know him well. They have got very good individuals and a lot of energy in the side. I remember last season here when they came to the Amex and I can remember us getting a good result on the day, but I also remember thinking they've got real good quality and energy in the team. They still have the bulk of that side in Luke Murphy, Lewis Cook, and Alex Mowatt. They are all good young players with high energy and they're certainly building toward something there, there's no doubt about that. So that’s what we have to expect, I don’t think it’ll just be about Chris and Will and what they’re able to produce, they are only two of their many threats."

Playing at the Elland Road

"We'll try as much as possible to play our own game. We have been good away from home, which you have to be if you want to achieve something and be a competitive team. We have to treat it like we have done with all our away games so far, but they do have a crowd that get behind them and it is a difficult place to go. We'll have to have enough confidence in our abilities to go there and get a positive result."
