PRE-MATCH BRIEF: ALBION V LEICESTER CITY

30 March 2018

Linton Rogers
The pre-match brief for Albion v Leicester City

Brighton & Hove Albion welcome Leicester City to the Amex in the Premier League on Saturday, kick-off 3pm.
 
The two sides will be playing each other for the first time as Premier League teams at the Amex.  
 
Albion’s record against the Foxes at the Amex has been impressive, taking seven points from a possible nine, while recording a league double during the 2013/14 season, which saw the Foxes win promotion to the Premier League.
 
A bucket collection is taking place at Saturday’s game to raise money for the mayor of Brighton and Hove’s official charities.
 
Councillor Mo Marsh has been fundraising on behalf of five local good causes – including Albion in the Community (AITC). As well as AITC, the mayor’s fundraising campaign is supporting RISE, The Clock Tower Sanctuary, the Sussex Heart Charity and the Martlets Hospice. Funds raised on the day will be divided equally between all five charities.
