Brighton & Hove Albion manager Chris Hughton has confirmed that his club’s record signing, Jurgen Locadia, will start Saturday’s FA Cup tie against Coventry City.

Locadia was signed from PSV Eindhoven in January but has been recovering from a hamstring injury over the past few weeks.

‘He will play and start, he is fully clear from the injury,’ said Hughton.

‘This will give him the chance to work on his fitness levels and give him the chance to integrate into the team in a game, as opposed to in training.’

The Sky Blues hope to have two of their key men available after injury although manager Mark Robins faces a balancing act with Michael Doyle and Jack Grimmer with key league fixtures to come in the wake of the Seagulls trip.
