Speaking to the Official Site Hughton took time out to talk about the current injury situation with it known that Kazenga LuaLua had already been ruled out of the match, and he also talked about the form of Solly March in the last game against Cardiff City amongst other things.

‘The internationals have generally been good, and it’s great that they have all come back okay. It was good a few of them played, and Tomer scored for Israel, and I’m delighted that Gordon played.’

As for March.

‘We all know the ability he’s got, the nice thing for us is that we’ve predominantly used Solly on the right-hand side – but he is a natural left footer and we know he can play both sides, so from a confidence side of things I think that would have been great for him. The last 20 minutes of the game (Cardiff), at that time, in that position, you know that the game is going to open up. I thought he was very good and he has been able to take that into the training.’

As for Leeds a bit more specifically and the trip to Elland Road, he added.

‘We’ll try as much as possible to play our own game. We have been good away from home, which you have to be if you want to achieve something and be a competitive team. We have to treat it like we have done with all our away games so far, but they do have a crowd that get behind them and it is a difficult place to go. We’ll have to have enough confidence in our abilities to go there and get a positive result.’

As for Rosenior, in his interview he said that he felt Brighton still had plenty of improvements to make despite the very pleasurable star to 2015-16.

‘You can always improve. It doesn`t matter if you are top of the Championship, top of the Premier League, you always look to get better because if you don`t teams will overtake you. We`ve put ourselves in a position now where if we don`t look to improve and if we are happy with where we are we`ll soon find ourselves falling down the pecking order. You always look to get better. We want to win more games, score more goals. That comes from maybe doing the little things in games that help you get there.’
