U23 PREVIEW: ALBION V HULL CITY

3 November 2017

Brighton & Hove Albion’s under-23s return to Premier League Cup action this evening, as they welcome Hull City to the American Express Elite Football Performance Centre, kick-off 7pm.

The Seagulls lead Group H after their emphatic 5-0 victory over Sunderland in the north east, and have a game in hand over the Black Cats, who beat Exeter City 2-1 in their second fixture.

Two goals each for Max Sanders and Steven Alzate set Albion on their way, before James Tilley rounded off a fine display with a fifth goal at the Eppleton Colliery Welfare Ground at the end of September.

Tonight’s opponents opened their account with a disappointing 2-0 home defeat to Exeter, but the Tigers are currently seven games unbeaten in the Professional Development League, as they occupy third spot in the table.

In the Premier League 2 Division 2, Albion returned to winning ways on Monday evening, as Aaron Connolly’s second-half strike sealed a narrow 1-0 victory over ten-man Southampton in Hampshire.

Simon Rusk’s team will be looking to strengthen their position at the top of Group H this evening, before they travel to St James Park at the beginning of December to play Exeter.

Before that, the Seagulls take on Stoke City and Wolverhampton Wanders in league competition, as well as coming up against Stevenage and East Preston in the Checkatrade Trophy and Parafix Sussex Senior Cup respectively.

Please note that tickets for the game are no longer available and anyone turning up without one will be refused entry.

Albion supporters attending the game can get free parking at the American Express Elite Football Performance Centre.
