With Stoke in the relegation zone, boss Paul Lambert knows it is going to be a tough couple of months for his side.
"I said when I arrived we had 15 cup finals and Saturday is no different. We know it will be a difficult against Brighton who have a good manager, but if we can reproduce what we have recently then it will stand us in good stead to pick up a positive result.
"Since I arrived the supporters have been fantastic and really been behind us. Hopefully on Saturday we will give them something to cheer about."
"We are in a good place at the minute in terms of how we are playing. We just need to go out and pick up some wins.
"I have no problem with the way we play the game and last weekend we produced some of the best stuff since I came in. We need to reproduce that and results will follow."
