Albion's under-23s play at Villa Park this evening.
Brighton & Hove Albion’s under-23s take on Aston Villa in the Premier League 2 (Division 2) this evening, as they look to overtake their opponents with victory at Villa Park, kick-off 7pm.
The Seagulls are currently eighth in the league table, but three points against the Villans can move them into sixth position, and potentially just two points off the final play-off spot.
Christian Walton and Sam Adekugbe are both expected to feature, while trialist Andre Wright, a 20-year-old forward from West Bromwich Albion, has also been included in the matchday squad.
Albion are on the back of three successive victories, as they sealed a comfortable 3-0 victory over West Ham United in the Premier League Cup, beat Middlesbrough 4-2 in the league at the Amex and overcame Eastbourne Borough 4-3 in the Parafix Sussex Senior Cup.
