Team news

Roy Hodgson

Speaking about former Palace striker Glenn Murray: "Ive been very impressed by him.

"He left incredibly good memories here at Crystal Palace. The chairman [Steve Parish] speaks incredibly highly of him.

"Everyone admires what he has done not only for Palace but for Brighton. He is one of their main weapons Brighton have in their armoury and hes someone we have to pay very close attention to."

When asked whether he would be repeating Jurgen Klopp's run onto the pitch in the Merseyside derby last weekend he said: "I wont be doing it because I cant run that fast anyway,"

"It is not something which is occupying my waking moments before sleep time anyway.

"It is not always easy to take that step back and reactions are spontaneous unfortunately a spontaneous reaction will be criticised afterwards in the cold light of day."

Chris Hughton

"We don't like horrible starts and if we can avoid them we will.

"When I look back at the (Palace) game, it was very strange. We got ourselves back into the game and both managers would have been massively disappointed with the goals we conceded.

"I expect a close game, a normal game when there's a lot of stake. They can be tense afairs, I just hope we can show enough quality to go on and win it."

Hughton appreciates, even from his playing days with Spurs, what victory would mean this evening.

"I've always been aware of it (rivalry)," he said. "My brother (Henry) played for Palace, I was brought up in London, I played against Brighton in the early eighties and against Palace.

"So I've always been aware of it."
