Hughton Wary Of Wounded Leicester

Hughton Wary Of Wounded Leicester

Brighton boss Chris Hughton says he is unsure how Leicester City will respond following the sacking of manager Claude Puel.

The Foxes sacked Puel on Sunday after Saturday’s 4-1 thumping at the hands of Crystal Palace and the club have put first-team coaches Mike Stowell and Adam Sadler in temporary charge.

Brighton have the challenge of taking on the managerless side on Tuesday evening at King Power Stadium and Hughton is not sure what to expect from the 2015/16 Premier League champions.

“They have a lot of ability in the team and very good individuals. How it will affect the team and the group, the answer is I don’t know,” he said.

“We have to concentrate on the things we feel can get us a result and we need to start picking up some points.”

The Seagulls are on a six-game winless run in the league heading into the contest although they did manage to beat Derby County 2-1 last time out to reach the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.

Brighton are just two places and three points above the relegation zone and they have never beaten Leicester in the three previous PL meetings, drawing once and losing twice.
