The duo are expected to step up their recoveries from injury.

Kazenga LuaLua and Richie Towell are expected to feature for Brighton & Hove Albion’s under-23s against Leicester City in the Premier League Cup today, kick-off 1pm.

Both players have travelled as part of Simon Rusk’s matchday squad and should receive game time on their return from injury at St Georges Park.

LuaLua hasn’t played since Albion’s 2-0 loss to Newcastle at the end of August, while Towell last appeared for the Seagulls in their play-off semi-final first leg against Sheffield Wednesday last season.


Albion will be looking to build on their 7-0 victory over Nottingham Forest in their opening Premier League Cup fixture, with Rusk’s team currently occupying top spot in Group E.

The Foxes, who play in the Premier League 2 (Division 1), lost their opening game 2-0 against West Ham United.
