Brighton & Hove Albion v Derby County

Date published: 2/15/2019 5:46:38 PM

Brighton will qualify for the FA Cup quarter-finals for the second successive season with victory over Derby County on Saturday.

bet365 match odds: Brighton 4/5, Draw 14/5, Derby 15/4

Meanwhile, the Rams will arrive at the Amex Stadium determined to avoid crashing out of the competition at the fifth round stage for the fifth successive season.

The Seagulls are on a wretched run of form in the league and steadily dropping down the table. A five-match winless streak has left Chris Hughton’s men perilously close to the relegation zone.

It would be understandable if Brighton fans were conflicted about their club's FA Cup run.

There is a school of thought, and not without merit, positing that an extended cup run detracts from the club's to core priority - that of preserving it's Premier League status.

Yet the corollary is also not without merit; a good cup run could prove the catalyst for a turnaround in league fortunes.

Fortunately Hughton doesn't have to worry about competing priorities this time round when picking his team for the visit of the Rams.

Brighton effectively have a league bye next weekend. They were scheduled to play Chelsea but the latter will be contesting the Carabao Cup final with Manchester City.

This stroke of scheduling luck means Hughton will have the luxury of picking his best XI for Saturday's tie.

But the Seagulls will hold no fears for Derby, who have already dumbed another top flight club, Southampton, out of the competition.

The Rams will relish the opportunity to test themselves against ‘superior’ opponents.

Derby have not beaten Brighton in the last five meetings between the two sides, a record they will be desperate to correct.

TEAM NEWS

Brighton striker Florin Andone misses out following a retrospective three-match ban for his FA Cup fourth round indiscretions.

The Romania forward was cited for elbowing West Brom’s Sam Field in the previous round.

José Isquierdo is back in the frame after two and half months on the sidelines with a knee injury.

Solly March will be assessed for an ankle injury, with the forward rated doubtful for the tie.

Derby boss Frank Lampard is expected to make several changes to the ‘weakened’ side that drew 1-1 with Ipswich in midweek.

Tom Lawrence is tipped to continue in midfield after making his return from injury at Portman Road.

Tom Huddlestone, Mason Mount and Jack Marriott all missed the trio to Ipswich. The latter duo remain sidelined with injury by Huddlestone is set to feature.

Liverpool loanee Harry Wilson is a doubt after picking up a knock against Ipswich. Another loanee, Andy King, is cup-tied having already play for his parent club Leicester City.

Brighton and Hove Albion v Derby County

    Brighton & Hove Albion 2-1 Derby County

    Date published: 2/16/2019 3:58:24 PM

    Brighton reached the quarter-finals of the FA Cup for the second season in a row by clinching a 2-1 victory against Derby County.

    First-half goals by Anthony Knockaert and Jurgen Locadia proved to be enough to secure victory for Chris Hughton’s side, who were knocked out of the competition by Manchester United last season.
    In a lively opening to the fifth-round tie, Knockaert had an early free-kick saved by Rams goalkeeper Kelle Roos while Yves Bissouma blasted a shot high and wide.
    The Seagulls deservedly took the lead in the 33rd minute when the impressive Knockaert fired a low shot past Roos after Bissouma had set up the Frenchman.
    The Championship side struggled to create many clear-cut openings throughout the 90 minutes and it came as little surprise when the Seagulls doubled their lead in first-half stoppage time.
    Bissouma’s shot beat Roos but hit the post and Locadia was on hand to turn the rebound home.
    Derby boss Frank Lampard opted to bring on Ashley Cole for the second half but the visitors continued to struggle after the interval.
    Jack Marriott had a shot blocked but Brighton went close to extending their advantage when Roos tipped Knockaert’s fierce drive over the bar.
    The visitors appeared to be heading out of the competition with a whimper but they halved the deficit with nine minutes left when the 38-year-old Cole nodded the ball into an empty net after Brighton had failed to clear the initial danger.
    The goal lifted Lampard’s side but, although they won several late corners, they were unable to take the match into extra time.
    Derby will now focus their attention on cementing a place in the Championship play-offs while Hughton will be keen to lift Brighton away from relegation danger - the Seagulls’ next game is at Leicester City on February 26.
