Albion face possible reunion with former boss
Albion face a possible FA Cup reunion with former two-time manager Micky Adams and two of his players.
The Seagulls have been drawn away to Adams’ League One side Port Vale or League Two Plymouth Argyle in the fourth round on January 25 or 26.
The teams drew 2-2 at Vale Park yesterday after Adams’ side squandered a 2-0 lead and now face a replay in Devon next week.
Adams was in charge of Albion from April 1999 to October 2001. He guided them to the League Two title at Withdean and signed Bobby Zamora before leaving for Leicester, with the Seagulls in promotion contention again in League One.
Adams returned in May 2008 in place of Dean Wilkins but only lasted nine months.
Two of Vale’s midfielders, Hastings-born Doug Loft and Chris Birchall, played for Albion under him. Loft set up the second goal for Tom Pope yesterday, while Birchall was on the bench. The trip to Vale will be the second of four successive away games for the Seagulls. They visit Derby on January 18, Burnley on the Tuesday after the FA Cup tie and Watford on February 2.
