Big Preview: Brighton v Burnley

23 August 2013

Brighton v Burnley
The Amex Stadium
24/8/13 (kick-off 3pm)

Last four matches:

Brighton Star Man: Leonardo Ulloa
Argentine striker Leonardo Ulloa was signed from Spanish side, Almeria in January 2013 for an undisclosed fee after being crowned the club’s top scorer for the 2011/12 season. Ulloa continued his impressive hot-streak last term, netting 14 goals since the turn of the year, three of which came against Huddersfield in March. 
The 27-year-old hasn’t shown any signs of slowing down in the new season, with two league goals already to his name playing as a lone striker for the Seagulls.

Team news:
Burnley: Burnley are without winger Ross Wallace, who will be sielined for several months following a knee-op, and defender Michael Duff (groin).

Brighton: Ashley Barnes is a doubt with a hip injury. If Barnes fails to recover then Leo Ulloa will be the only senior recognised striker available, with Craig Mackail-Smith and Will Hoskins both recovering from long-term injuries.

Stat of the Day:
This is the first time in our history that Burnley have been in the same league as Brighton for three seasons in a row.
