Where: American Express Community Stadium


Jason Steele GK vs. Mark Flekken GK


Veteran goalkeeper Jason Steele has been steady if unspectacular for Brighton this season. His 22 saves and 1 clean sheet in 8 starts show capable shot-stopping ability. Steele uses his 6’2″ frame well to command the area on crosses and set pieces. His distribution helping initiate quick counters can also not be overlooked. Steele should be up for the challenge against a Brentford attack that has struggled to finish at times this season. While he can be guilty of an occasional blunder, Steele’s experience and leadership playing behind Brighton’s high backline will be invaluable in this contest.


Opposing keeper Mark Flekken has been strong as well for Brentford with 31 saves and 3 clean sheets in his 13 starts. His quick reflexes and strong hands allow him to make difficult saves looks routine. Flekken has shown mental toughness late in games as well, preserving leads with key stops. His leadership in net will be important to hold off Brighton’s young scorers. But his defense must improve on their 17 goals allowed if Brentford hopes to grab road points. At his best, Flekken has the ability to single-handedly keep Brentford in matches. He will need to be sharp against a Brighton attack that likes to press high up the pitch.
