Brighton v Albion match preview

25 January 2019

Albion travel to face Brighton & Hove Albion at the American Express Community Stadium in the FA Cup fourth-round this Saturday (ko 3pm).

The opposition

Brighton sit in 13th place in the Premier League and are managed by Chris Hughton, who has been at the club since December 2014.

The Seagulls beat AFC Bournemouth 3-1 at the Vitality Stadium in the FA Cup third-round to progress to this stage of the competition.

Last time out

Our last meeting was in January 2018 as headed goals from Jonny Evans and Craig Dawson secured a 2-0 Hawthorns victory for the Baggies.

 

Stats

Albion

• The Baggies have lost just one of their last 13 games and have won five of their last six on the road.
• Darren Moore's side have scored the second-highest amount of league goals in England. Albion have netted 57 times whilst Manchester City, who top the charts, have notched 64.
This fixture will be the first ever meeting in the proper rounds of the FA Cup between two teams with the title 'Albion'.

Brighton

• Have won just one of their last eight league games, including five defeats and two draws.
• Brighton have failed to score in 10 of the 21 matches that they have played against the Baggies.
• Glenn Murray has netted eight goals for Brighton this season, with centre half Shane Duffy their next highest scorer with four.

From the archive

Here are the highlights from an emphatic 5-1 victory for the Baggies against Brighton & Hove Albion at The Hawthorns in 1982... 

Head to head

Albion come out on top in the head-to-head record.

Of the 21 matches that have been played, the Baggies have triumphed nine times, there have been seven draws and Brighton have won on five occasions.

Man in the middle

The referee for Saturday's match is Lee Mason, and he'll be assisted by Derek Eaton and Simon Long with Craig Pawson as the fourth official.

Lee Mason has refereed Albion twice this season and both times Darren Moore's men have scored four goals; winning 4-3 at Norwich City and 4-1 against Leeds United.

Match Reports

Brighton & Hove Albion 0 Albion 0

26 January 2019

Albion face an Emirates FA Cup replay against Brighton & Hove Albion after their fourth-round tie finished goalless at the Amex Stadium.

A much-changed Baggies side, who finished the match with five Academy graduates on the pitch and seven in the matchday 18, matched the Premier League Seagulls as they showed maturity, passion, desire and spirit aplenty in front of more than 3,000 travelling supporters.

Tosin Adarabioyo came closest for the Baggies when his header came back off the upright, with Dale Stephens clipping the woodwork for the hosts.

Both sides will now face off again at The Hawthorns early next month for a place in the fifth round of the world's oldest domestic cup competition.

The draw means Albion have now tasted defeat just once in their previous 14 matches, with a home Sky Bet Championship encounter against Middlesbrough next up.

Darren Moore made nine changes from the Baggies XI who started Monday night's league victory at Bolton Wanderers, Rekeem Harper involved along with Hal Robson-Kanu, who was named captain for the cup clash.

It was the hosts who enjoyed the better of the opening quarter, although neither goalkeeper was forced into a save of note until Jonathan Bond, who starred throughout, denied the lively Yves Bissouma and then Florin Andone in quick succession midway through the first period.

The Seagulls twice went close just after the half-hour mark, Bond parrying Beram Kayal's effort, with Adarabioyo clearing the danger, before Bissouma sent a long-range strike narrowly over.

The Baggies grew into the first half and, gaining in confidence, saw plenty of the ball as it wore on.

The tempo increased after the restart and Harper drilled an effort from distance just off target for the visitors before Stephens struck the outside of a post for the home side in the 58th minute.

Harper was unable to find Robson-Kanu in space in the penalty area as the clash flowed from end to end.

It was the Baggies who struck the woodwork in the 72nd minute, Adarabioyo heading against the angle from Wes Hoolahan's inswinging free-kick.

Bond got down well to deny Seagulls substitute Davy Propper as the tie hung in the balance.

Rayhaan Tulloch, 18, was introduced for his senior debut in the 81st minute.

And it was left for Bond to come to the rescue to keep out sub Glenn Murray late on as the FA Cup tie, the first-ever between two 'Albions' in the proper rounds of the competition, finished in stalemate.

Albion: Bond, Mears, Bartley, Adarabioyo, Townsend, Harper, Field, Edwards, Robson-Kanu, Hoolahan (Tulloch 81), Leko (Holgate 89).

Subs: Myhill, Gibbs, Fitzwater, Howkins, Gayle.
