Locadia benefiting from 'competitive' Brighton - Hughton

Jurgen Locadia Former PSV forward Jurgen Locadia was an unused substitute against Stoke last weekend

Brighton manager Chris Hughton was happy to see new signing Jurgen Locadia score on his debut to help the team to a 3-1 win over Coventry on Saturday.

"Leo's goal is what he can do - he is a target man and wants to get into the box", Hughton added in his post-match press conference. "We had to work hard for it today and credit to Coventry for that".

"He is the type of striker that if you provide a service for him, he will have opportunities to score". This game is a distraction, but a good distraction. We are going down to play in front of a full house. The club-record signing was a £15m arrival from PSV in January.

"Leonardo [Ulloa] made some good movement for the first goal".

Captain Michael Doyle and right-back Jack Grimmer, who scored the victor against Stoke in the third round, are both doubts.

Jordan Maguire-Drew, on loan from Brighton, is ineligible and Kyel Reid is cup-tied for the League Two side.

Brighton have only won one of their last nine games against Coventry in all competitions (D4 L4), though this is the first such meeting since a Championship defeat in December 2011.

Locadia received a standing ovation when he was substituted with 13 minutes remaining and Hughton was pleased with the 24-year-old's instant impact and that he can now play a part in Brighton's Premier League survival bid.

Although Woods is now out of proceedings, Northern Ireland's Graeme McDowell holds a joint-lead going into the weekend's action. He hit a sensational shot from 200 yards within inches of the hole for an eagle putt and he made no mistake from close range.

Coventry looked unsafe at times as they moved the ball through the middle, but were undone as Conner Goldson headed in a Marcus Suttner corner.

Coventry have already eliminated Premier League opposition this season (Stoke in the third round).

Brighton host fourth-tier side Coventry, who are the lowest ranked team left in the competition.

Brighton have only lost two of their last 15 FA Cup home games (W8 D5), with both defeats coming at the hands of Arsenal.

The Sky Blues have lost four consecutive matches in all competitions for the first time since December 2016.

"What we have been given is a home tie, some will look at it as us being favourites".

'If you can't go and enjoy a game like this then you need to give up.
