Potter to offer Tau chance to impress?

Percy Tau looks likely to get another opportunity to impress for Brighton and Hove Albion when they face Leicester City in the FA Cup this evening.

Tau, 26, has been an unused substitute for the last three consecutive Premier League games with Neal Maupay and Leonardo Trossard delivering impressive displays upfront in their impressive wins over Liverpool and Tottenham.

However, with the congested fixture list and the priority being ensuring they retain their top-flight status in the 2020/21 season, the Bafana Bafana star has been tipped for a run-out against the high flying Foxes.

"We need to see how everybody recovers, but there's a chance of that because it's just so demanding," Potter said in the pre-match press conference.

Andy Naylor of the Athletic further elaborated on what Potter might do as they look to ease Tau into the physically demanding life of English football.

"Graham Potter will make changes, they've had a really hectic schedule, this will be their third away game in the space of a week," Naylor said on LCFC TV.

"There's also a chance that we'll see Percy Tau again, a South African who they finally brought over in January after having three loan spells in Belgium.

"He started at Newport, he played against Blackpool, he played in the Premier League in a narrow 1-0 defeat at Manchester City where he made his full debut. He came on at Leeds and has been an unused sub a few times more recently."
