Micky Adams is relishing the possibility of facing Albion in the FA Cup.

The two-time former Seagulls boss takes his Port Vale side to Plymouth Argyle for their third round replay tonight after they surrendered a 2-0 lead at half-time in the first meeting.

Adams said: "From a personal point of view I would love to play Brighton at Vale Park.

"But there is an awful long way to go yet and we have to work extremely hard."

Albion are set to meet the winners in the fourth round on Saturday January 25.

Micky was an important part of our regeneration as a club and, for me, will always be an Albion hero. He brought players like Richard Carpenter, Watto, Danny Cullip and Paul Brooker to the club, and persuaded the board to buy Bobby Zamora. We may have moved on since those days but I still remember the sense of hope he brought with him.

Yep, big chorus of "One Mickey Adams..." if we get his Valiants in the 4th.

The above comment is spot on. I saw him when Oxford played Port Vale last season at Oxford. He always has a good side in the lower leagues...I think its 5 times he has got a side promoted.

Oxford haven't a clue how to get out of League 2, with Micky in charge they would!

UTA!

Yes it would be good to go up against Mickey's Port Vale but we also have a good connection with Argyle and Fans United. UTA
