Carabao Cup: Leon Balogun to miss clash against Aston Villa

Nigerian defender Leon Balogun is set to miss Brighton’s Carabao Cup clash at home against Aston Villa on Wednesday.

Balogun had been out injured after withdrawing from the Super Eagles friendly match against Ukraine.

At a pre-match press conference for the Villa game, Brighton coach, Graham Potter, confirmed that players who missed the Premier League goalless draw against Newcastle last Saturday were still out.

“It’s still the same guys that we are missing,” Potters said.

The 31-year-old has only made one appearance for Brighton this season, which was in their 2-1 win over Bristol Rovers in the last round of the Carabao Cup.
