Brighton boss Potter happy with Locadia and Lamptey for Cup win

Brighton boss Graham Potter was happy to rotate his players for their Carabao Cup win against Swansea City.

Tariq Lamptey collected his first 45 minutes since last December and Jurgen Locadia played for the first time since August 2019 when he came off the bench for the last 15 minutes of the 2-0 Amex win over Swansea City.

Potter said, "The crowd have seen Tariq perform in empty stadiums during lockdown and they were excited by him. They were desperate to see him play and for his first 45 minutes in such a long time I thought he was really good.

"It was also good to get Jurgen [Locadia] on for the last 15 minutes. He's been training well and building up his stamina so it was good for him to get on the pitch."
