Albion's manager will give his players longer run-outs at the weekend.
Chris Hughton has confirmed his first-team squad members will complete nearly full games this weekend, as Brighton & Hove Albion face a pre-season double header against Luton and Stevenage on Saturday.
Hughton told Seagulls Player HD he will be taking a large contingency to both games and he is expecting his senior players to get a good chunk of game time under their belts.
He said, “What it [two games in one day] will allow us to do, if I look at what I regard as the senior players, it will allow them to play close to full games.
“We have tried to build pre-season up with a good training schedule with 45-minute games and then three of them played 60 minutes against Fulham, but what you will find is that all the senior players, what we regard as the first-team squad, will all play 75 to 80 minutes on Saturday.
“We will take a big squad to both places, all of the young lads will travel with us, unfortunately they won’t get too many minutes, but it allows us to get the minutes we want at first-team level.”
