U23 PREVIEW: ALBION V READING

25 August 2017

Brighton & Hove Albion’s under-23s will be looking to continue their fine start to the season against Reading at the Amex this evening, as they search for their third consecutive victory, kick-off 7pm.

The Seagulls are fourth in the Premier League 2 Division 2 after back-to-back wins, however the Royals are yet to record a point this season, after losing 4-0 and 5-3 in their opening couple of games.

Simon Rusk’s team began with a hard-fought 2-1 victory at Norwich City, before getting the better of Fulham at the Checkatrade.com Stadium, when Albion ran out 4-2 winners in an entertaining game.

Five different players have found the back of the net for the Seagulls, with the other being an own goal, and Rusk will be hoping for a continued showing of creativity in front of goal this evening.

Tonight’s match will be Albion’s first meeting with one of the teams that were relegated from the Premier League 2 Division 1 last season, with them also coming up against Southampton at the end of October.

After featuring for the first team in midweek, James Tilley, who scored his first senior goal, Jayson Molumby and Aaron Connolly could all come back into contention for Rusk’s under-23 team.

Albion supporters can still secure their tickets for tonight’s game, with the game priced at £5 for adults, £2 for under-16s/over-65s and free for season-ticket holders.

All supporters should select the print-at-home option when buying their ticket online at seagullstickets.com, and there is also free parking at Bennett’s Field car park.

ALBION (squad from): Sanchez (GK), Collings (GK), McGill (GK), Moore, O’Sullivan, Collar, Cox, Hall, Kerr, Sanders, Molumby, Hutchinson, Mandroiu, Ajiboye, J.Davies, Bjordal, Tilley, Connolly, Alzate.
