Albion's under-23s kick-off a busy week of action.

There are three games for Brighton & Hove Albion teams this week, which includes Premier League 2, FA Women’s Super League and Emirates FA Cup action.

MONDAY 11TH MARCH: BLACKBURN ROVERS UNDER-23S V ALBION UNDER-23S, KICK-OFF 7PM

Simon Rusk’s side continue their push for the Premier League 2 Division 1 title with a match against Blackburn Rovers at the Leyland County Ground tonight.
 
Albion head into the game on the back of three consecutive wins, and sit second in the table, four points behind league leaders, Everton.
 
Rovers are currently tenth in the table and will be aiming to move further clear of the bottom two relegation places in the division.
 
This season’s reverse fixture between the sides ended 2-1 to Albion, as goals from Ben Barclay and Aaron Connolly secured all three points at the Amex back in October.
 
WEDNESDAY 13TH MARCH: YEOVIL TOWN LADIES V ALBION WOMEN, KICK-OFF 7.45PM
 
Hope Powell’s side make the trip to Dorchester on Wednesday night for a game against the FAWSL’s bottom club, Yeovil Town.
 
Albion head into the game having lost just one of their last five games, including an impressive 2-1 win over high-flying Birmingham City at the People’s Pension Stadium last time out.
 
It will be the third time that Albion have faced the Glovers this season after recording a 2-1 win over the Somerset side in this season’s reverse fixture in Crawley, before claiming a 4-1 victory in an FA WSL Continental Tyres Cup clash back in December.
 
Tickets for the game can be bought in advance online now, priced at £5 for adults, £2.50 for children and concessions. A family ticket of two adults and two children costs £12.
 
SUNDAY 17TH MARCH: MILLWALL V ALBION, KICK-OFF 2PM
 
The week’s action concludes at the New Den with an Emirates FA Cup quarter-final tie against Millwall.
 
Albion have overcome AFC Bournemouth, West Bromwich Albion and Derby County on their route to the last eight, emulating the club’s best run to the competition in 32 years last season, when they were beaten by Manchester United in the quarter-finals. 
 
Meanwhile, Sunday’s hosts have beaten Hull City, Everton and AFC Wimbledon on their journey to the quarter-finals.
 
Tickets for the game have now sold out.
