Tariq Lamptey could play a part against Swansea in the EFL Cup tomorrow night, Graham Potter has revealed.

The 20-year-old right back was on the bench for the Albion’s 2-1 win against Leicester on Sunday and received rapturous applause from Albion fans when he ran down the touchline to warm up in the first half.

Albion boss Graham Potter favoured summer arrival Enock Mwepu as a substitute in the Seagulls’ fourth win of the campaign, but has revealed that the former Chelsea youngster could play against Swansea in the third round tomorrow.

He said: “He’s in the squad, he’s going to be in the 18 so there’s a good chance.

“It will be great for him and great for them [the fans] because he’s had a frustrating time.

“He’s an exciting player, we forget of course because he’s played a lot of his games behind closed doors so it will be fantastic for everybody for him to be on the pitch.”

Potter also said that out-of-favour Jurgen Locadia could be involved, although only off the bench.

He said: “He’s available, he will be in the squad. He’s probably at a point where he’s not ready to start and play a big lot of minutes but he can certainly influence the back end of the game.

“So he will be in the squad and there’s a chance he could be on the pitch at some point.”
