Poyet tells Brighton players to forget FA Cup and concentrate on the League

Brighton boss Gus Poyet has called on his players to put the FA Cup to one side and focus on their promotion push. The League One leaders will face FC United at home in the second round after finally seeing off Woking on penalties.

But after their 12-game unbeaten streak came to an end at Hartlepool last weekend, Poyet is eager to get back to winning ways against Bristol Rovers.

"We need to forget about the next round and concentrate on winning games in the league," he said.

"We've an important game coming up at the Withdean before we go to Southampton, so let's forget about the cup for a while."
