FA Cup: Leon Balogun fit for Brighton's game vs Sheffield

Leon Balogun has been declared fit and ready to compete for Brighton as they face Sheffield in the FA Cup on Saturday.

Balogun is yet to make an appearance for Brighton in the Premier League this season with his only game for the Seagulls coming in the Carabao Cup second round 2-1 away win against Bristol Rovers in August.

He was sick during the Christmas period but manager Graham Potter said he is now fit to play again and could feature for the side.

“Leon Balogun is fit and comes into contention. He was sick over Christmas which is why he wasn’t involved but he has been training,” the manager said.

“There is a chance Solly March could be involved in the group on Saturday.”

Brighton head into the game in buoyant mood following Wednesday’s impressive 1-1 home draw against Chelsea where Alizera Jahanbaksh scored a breathtaking overhead kick.
