Brighton have confirmed that the date for the Amex Stadium hosting of Leeds United later this month will remain the same.

The match was and is, set for Monday February 29, and the club have confirmed that the Championship game will not be effected should a replay be required for our FA Cup fifth round tie against Watford.

The Cup clash goes ahead next week and some supporters had contacted the club to question what would happen to the Leeds game should a replay be required.

Usually replays take place ten days after the original tie, but with a full Premier League programme already in place for the week beginning February 29, any fifth round ties that require a replay have been provisionally set for the following week and Watford are already scheduled to face Manchester United on March 2.
