Cardiff City play host to Premier League outfit Brighton in Tuesday’s Carabao Cup second-round clash.

The Bluebirds overcame Sutton United in the first round, while the Seagulls received a bye through to this stage of the competition.

Here is everything you need to know about the clash…

What time is Cardiff City v Brighton kick-off?

Cardiff City v Brighton kicks off at 7.45pm on Tuesday, August 24.

Is Cardiff City v Brighton on TV?


Due to Carabao Cup broadcasting rules, there will be no live broadcast of the game either on television or online.

Cardiff City will be live streaming audio commentary of the game. You can find out more about that here.

Alternatively, you can follow live updates from the capital via our match blog which will be available on our Cardiff City page from early Tuesday evening.

What’s the latest team news?

Mick McCarthy has not suffered any fresh injury concerns to his squad.

The manager will, however, likely rotate the side which won against Millwall at the weekend, given the fixtures are already coming thick and fast in August.

It means we could see some players receive some minutes who have not yet had the opportunities they would have liked, namely the likes of Will Vaulks and Josh Murphy.

Isaac Vassell is one who could also benefit, too, having played two 90-minute matches for the under-23s in recent weeks. It would be a real boost to see him back in the first-team fray.

Youngsters such as Tom Davies, Sam Bowen and Kieron Evans will all be looking to force their way into the manager’s thinking, too.

Whether Mark McGuinness, Ciaron Brown and Lee Tomlin have recovered in time for this one remains to be seen.

Meanwhile, the big news coming from the south coast is that Neal Maupay is unfit for the midweek clash.

Seagulls boss and former Swansea City manager Graham Potter has said their top scorer this season is out of the cup clash after being taken off at the weekend with a shoulder injury.

Danny Welbeck is also still injured and will not feature for Brighton on Tuesday evening, while defender Joel Veltman is unlikely to return until after the international break.

What has Brighton’s manager said?

Graham Potter: “Mick McCarthy has done a fantastic job – he’s an experienced manager.

“They play to their strengths really well, they’ve got some dangerous players and are good from set plays.

“It’s a really organised team that plays to their strengths and we know it will be a really tough game.

“I don’t know their situation in terms of what they’ve been through in pre-season – they’ve got a big squad I presume because they play in the Championship.

“But whoever plays they will be organised, they will play to their strengths, they will be competitive and resilient.

“They will be everything you would expect from a Mick McCarthy team and they will want to win. It’s going to be a really good test.

“I don’t think I will get a particularly nice welcome, that’s for sure!

“But it will be nice to go back to south Wales again, but I am not expecting a pleasant welcome.”
