  11. Brighton v Reading team news

    Chris Hughton

    Brighton and Hove Albion boss Chris Hughton has confirmed Belgian defender Sebastien Pocognoli will make his debut in tomorrow night's EFL Cup clash with Reading at the Amex.

    The left-back joined the club last month from West Bromwich Albion on a season-long loan. 

    Meanwhile defender Rob Hunt, who made his league debut on Saturday against Burton, will also start the game with fellow defenders Uwe Hunemeier and Connor Goldson all in line to make starts.

    You can hear all the build-up from 19:00 BST tomorrow on BBC Sussex. 

    Quote Message: Seb's trained really well since he's been here. He had some game-time in the pre-season with West Brom but he would be behind most of the lads as regards to the amount of games that he's played, so it's certainly a good game for him to come in and a very competitive game at that." from Chris Hughton Brighton and Hove Albion Manager
