Leo Ulloa wants an East Midlands repeat performance at the City Ground.

Albion’s top scorer would love a performance reminiscent of the recent 4-1 win at Leicester City.

And not just because of the scoreline that night.

Ulloa is convinced the Seagulls need a win at Nottingham Forest to have a realistic chance of going into the play-offs.

He reckons the combination of a bold start, disciplined defending and clinical finishing they displayed at the King Power Stadium is needed again.

Ulloa said: “I’d like a repeat of Leicester of course. We beat the leaders.

“But not just because of that. It was a game which was really pleasing for how we played and how we took our chances.”

A repeat of the 2-2 draw by the Trent last term, when Ulloa scored one goal and made another, will leave them hoping Burnley win at Reading.

He added: “It was a bitter-sweet feeling there last season. We were 2-1 up and they scored at the end.

“But it was a game I enjoyed from the individual point of view and the team as well played well.”
