​Brighton record signing Webster ready for Bristol return

Brighton record signing Adam Webster is ready to return to Bristol.

Webster will face his former club's local rivals, Bristol Rovers, where he knows he will get a hostile reception.

The centre-back joined Albion from Bristol City in a big money deal last month.

Now he is heading back to that city in a Carabao Cup clash today. And he is under no illusions about how Rovers fans will treat him.

"The gap between the Premier League and the Football League is getting smaller, I know exactly what's coming," he told a pre-match press conference.

"It's a passionate footballing city, it'll be a physical game. Cup games are always big occasions, they'll be eager to cause an upset.

"We have to know that and make sure we're ready and prepared."
