Tyler Forbes and Tom Dallison

Brighton & Hove Albion under-23 defensive duo Tom Dallison and Tyler Forbes have joined Accrington Stanley on loan until 1st January 2018.
Both players will link up with John Coleman's squad ahead of their League Two season opener against Colchester United at the Wham Stadium tomorrow.
Under-23 coach Simon Rusk said, "Tom and Tyler are two of the more senior members of the group and it's a positive that they're going to get regular football in the EFL.
"The loan moves suit all three parties, and Accrington are getting two players that already have EFL experience.
"It is also a positive for us as a group that EFL clubs are looking at our players to improve their squads."
It will be Dallison’s fifth loan move since arriving at Albion in October 2013, after previous spells at Dartford, Braintree, Crawley Town and Cambridge United.
Forbes arrived at Albion in July 2016 from Fleetwood Town, and made 13 league appearances for the under-23s last season.

The pair's under-23 colleagues Jordan Maguire-Drew and Ben White have signed loan deals with Lincoln City and Newport County respectively.

While first-team keeper Christian Walton is on a season's loan at League One Wigan Athletic, and Oliver Norwood with Championship side Fulham.
