Brighton duo to come in for cup trip

6th February 2019, 07:26 by Michael Holland

Alireza Jahanbakhsh and David Button look set to start as Chris Hughton again makes changes against West Brom in the FA Cup replay.

Despite wanting to go far in the competition, Hughton has stated that he will again rotate his squad, with the fringe duo among those likely to come in while Bernardo is also in contention.

Dale Stephens remains doubtful with a hip problem and will not be risked at the Hawthorns, while Jose Izquierdo remains sidelined because of a knee injury.

Even so Hughton believes he has a strong squad that should be good enough to get through tonight's replay.

"The biggest thing for me is the competitive squad that I currently have at my disposal," he admitted. "It's the most competitive we've had it throughout my time here at the club, even with the few injuries we have at the moment.

"You have to be able to use that squad and use the competition; that will always be the case."
