Preview | Brighton & Hove Albion (a) - Carabao Cup Round Two

21 August 2017

Carabao Cup Round Two - The AMEX - Tuesday 22nd August 2017 – KO 7:45pm

Team News: 

John Akinde (knee) and Richard Brindley (ankle) are still recovering from injuries picked up in preseason, but this game is likely to be too soon for their return. Elliott Johnson (knee) will be out for most of the season.

Brighton are likely to make wholesale changes, giving a number of fringe players the chance to gain minutes.


Last Time We Met:

The last meeting between the two sides was 9 years ago, when Brighton ran out 4-0 winners over the Bees at the Withdean Stadium. A brace from Adam Virgo as well as goals from Nicky Forster and Matt Richards saw the Seagulls progress to the next round of the League Cup.

The game wasn’t without incident however, with both sides ending up with 10 men. First, Kenny Gillet saw red for Barnet in the 70th minute before Glenn Murray was sent off in the 85th minute for a second bookable offence.  



Chris Hughton successfully guided Brighton into the Premier League last season finishing second to his former side Newcastle United after a dramatic final day.

Hughton, a full back in his playing days, represented three clubs – Tottenham Hotspur, West Ham United and Brentford as well as making 53 appearances for the Republic of Ireland.

He moved into coaching in 1993, spending 14 years at Spurs as Under 21s manager, Reserve Team manager and finally assistant manager as well as a couple of spells as caretaker manager.

A move to Newcastle as a first team coach followed in 2008. The side were relegated in 2009 and after a positive start to life in England’s second tier and being awarded the Manager of the Month award three times, the board appointed him as the permanent manager.

Hughton successfully guided the Toon back to the Premier League. Spells with Birmingham City and Norwich followed before he arrived at the Seagulls.



Record signing José Izquierdo was in line to start but is yet to recieve international clearance.

It has been confirmed that Anthony Knockaert is set to feature after missing much of pre-season with an ankle injury. The Frenchman was awarded Championship Player of the Year last season, scoring 13 goals in 40 games and was a crucial part of his sides promotion to the Premier League.


Last Time Out:

Brighton lost 2-0 at Leicester City on Saturday afternoon. The Seagulls made the worst possible start after Shinji Okazaki poked home a loose ball in the opening minute of the match.

Glenn Murray had a goal ruled out for offside before the break in what was the newly promoted sides best chance of the game. Their second successive defeat in the top tier was confirmed when Harry Maguire scored in the 54th minute.

Brighton: Ryan, Bruno, Duffy, Dunk, Suttner, March, Stephens, Pröpper, Murphy, Groß (Knockaert 62'), Murray (Hemed 66')

Unused substitutes: Bong, Hünemeier, Skalak, Mäenpää, Rosenior.

Report | Brighton & Hove Albion 1-0 Barnet FC

22 August 2017

The Bees can hold their heads high following a narrow defeat away to Premier League side Brighton & Hove Albion.

Following an injury in the warm up to Jamie Stephens, Craig Ross was drafted in to make his Barnet debut.

Mauro Vilhete had the first shot of the game 3 minutes in after being given time and space 20 yards out, but his effort curled over the bar.

The first chance for the hosts came on 8 minutes, when 2016/17 Championship Player of the Year Anthony Knockaert brought the ball into the box and Barnet failed to deal with the danger. It fell to Hemed who poked a shot narrowly wide.

Brighton began to dictate the play, controlling the ball well in midfield, but Barnet were more than holding their own when put any under pressure.

In the 19th minute, Vilhete had another shot at goal after neat passing play on the left hand side. His stinging effort from the top corner of the box went narrowly wide.

Just after the half hour mark, David Tutonda was caught in possession and Anthony Knockaert raced through on goal. The Frenchman took too long to get any shot away and when he finally did, Craig Ross was equal to it.

Jack Taylor was the next to have an effort on goal. A Jamal Campbell-Ryce corner fell to Akpa Akpro who set up the 19-year-old who curled a shot narrowly wide, hitting the stanchion behind the goal.

A minute later, the Bees had penalty appeals waved away by referee Stephen Martin. Shaq Coulthirst latched on to a loose back pass and seemed to be taken out by goalkeeper Niki Maenpaa.

Brighton broke the deadlock shortly after the restart. Liam Rosenior's shot was by Clough only to fall into the path of half time substitute James Tilley who slotted home.

The goal really seemed to bring Barnet to life however. A corner shortly afterwards was played short and whipped in by Jack Taylor. Coulthirst flicked it on to Campbell-Ryce who saw his effort well saved, it then fell to Santos who could only put it into the side netting.

On the hour, Hemed had a weak effort at goal easily saved by Ross.

68 minutes in a Barnet struck the post. Harry Taylor sent Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro through on goal but his shot was deflected by the covering defender onto the upright.

Skalak had an effort from distance comfortably saved by Ross with 15 minutes left to play.

Chances for Jack Taylor, David Tutonda and Ruben Bover all came and went in the final few minutes and, despite all the pressure, it just wasn't to be for Barnet.

The Bees were backed by an impressive 678 travelling supporters who sang their hearts out throughout the 90 minutes.

BARNET: Ross, Clough, Santos, Campbell-Ryce (Akinola 63'), Coulthirst (Amaluzor 69'), J. Taylor, Tutonda, H. Taylor, Fonguck, Vilhete, Akpa Akpro (Bover 75').

Unused subs: Kyei, Shomotun, Smith.
