Leo Ulloa has wished fellow striker Ashley Barnes a successful future at Burnley.

But he hopes his former team mate does not open his Clarets account against the Seagulls tonight.

Barnes, who left Albion recently, is likely to play some part against his old club as Burnley host Oscar Garcia’s men at Turf Moor.

 

Ulloa said: “I hope Ashley doesn’t score against us, that’s the main thing.

“But from then on I wish him all the best.

“For one thing, he is a great person – good-natured, charismatic, he was always cheerful.

“And secondly, as a professional, you wish him good things with his team. He has done what he thinks is best for himself.

“I’d be delighted on a personal level if he was happy where he has gone because it was an important personal decision to join a new club.”

Nice and professional words from LU. I think any right minded Seagulls supporter would wish AB all the best, and thanks for his efforts for Brighton over the years. Clearly our Sen Management did not think AB was one for the future, and many on here have been critical of him too.
Clean sheet tonight please and at least 1 point.

Yes indeed - I'll add my name to the list of those who will settle for a point tonight.

Never been more certain of a goalscorer bet in my life! Barnes will certainly score against us, not least because he so divided the support for reasons I'll never quite understand, and will want to show those who doubted him what qualities we've sold.

Good luck to him, after tonight. Would be very, very happy to be proved wrong and my bet not come in!
