GRAHAM Potter wants Albion to progress in the League Cup when they take on Leicester City tomorrow evening.

The Seagulls were dumped out of the league cup in the third round last season by Aston Villa, but they have a chance of making it into the final eight teams of the competition this year.

Potter's team will travel to the King Power Stadium tomorrow and will be hoping to put in a better performance than they did against Manchester City on Saturday.

In his pre-match press conference, Potter said: "It is not something I have given a massive amount of thought to, we want to win the game, in cup competitions, there is no point thinking anything other than the next match you play.

"We are ambitious, we understand that a cup run can help the positivity and something that the supporters will like and enjoy.

"We will do our best in the game, and we want to be competitive, and we want to win as I am sure Leicester will want to as well. We go tomorrow and we will give it a go."

Albion have beaten the Foxes already this season in the League, but Potter does not think that will count for much when the teams take on each other.

Potter said: "I don't think the past counts for much, it will be two completely different teams, Brendan will make changes, and we will too.

"It is at their place, they will look to be dominant at home, and we need to be ready for and that we will have to compete and do our best.

"We will do our best. It is a great game for us and a good opportunity for the guys, we are looking forward to it."
