Brighton lost their weekend Championship game to Walsall despite having a two man advantage for most of the game. Walsall lost Rhys Weston and Netan Sansara in the 15th and 33rd minutes respectively, but the Seagulls were unable to convert their superiority in numbers to a win on the scoreboard. Brighton have only won once in their last five games. Brighton did not make it past the first round last season, losing in extra time to Cardiff City. Irish defender Collin Hawkins is fighting against the clock in order to be fit for this clash. In this season’s first round clash, Adam Virgo ( two goals), Matt Richards and Nicky Forster scored as Brighton beat Barnet 4-0.
Manchester City came out of Cyprus with a crucial three points in their midweek UEFA Cup tie. Brazilian striker Jo cancelled out Klorian Duro’s opener, and then added another as City emerged 2-1 winners. Hughes is expected to shuffle his side and make several changes for the game against Brighton. Last season, City made it to the last eight before falling to Tottenham Hotspur. They beat Bristol City in the second round, Norwich in the third and Bolton in the fourth. The winner of this game faces Derby County in the third round.
It is a game that could well end up being the last time we see Brighton in this year’s Carling Cup. The Citizens should do their job, but Brighton have nothing to lose and are at Withdean. Watch the game live to find out who progresses to the next round.
