The Carabao Cup third round continues tonight with Swansea City’s trip to face Brighton at the AMEX among the fixtures.
Two managers with distinct ideologies and playing styles, Russell Martin and Graham Potter, meet at different points in their respective projects.
Things seemed to have really clicked for the Seagulls this season and they sit fourth in the Premier League with four wins from five games.
The Swans have endured a tougher start in what is still the first few months of Martin’s tenure, with seven points from eight games leaving them teetering just above the Championship relegation zone.
Potter, of course, knows all about life in South Wales having taken charge at the Swansea.com Stadium previously.
With that in mind, tonight’s game promises to be an interesting tie on the South Coast.

Brighton could be boosted by the return of Tariq Lamptey, with Potter telling The Argus that the right-back will at least be part of the squad after recovering from injury.
He also confirmed that Jason Steele will get the nod in goal while both Haydon Roberts and Dan Burn could get some minutes.
Midfielder Yves Bissouma is set to miss the game but Dutch winger Jurgen Locadia could also make an appearance but Potter has indicated he will only feature from the bench if at all.
Martin has suggested that he will wring the changes for the trip to the AMEX as he looks to rest some of his key players following three Championship games in quick succession since the international break.
Summer signing Michael Obafemi will not be available as he is cup-tied after featuring for Southampton in a previous round of the competition.
WalesOnline has reported that the Swans are managing Liam Walsh and Flynn Downes carefully while Olivier Ntcham and Joel Piroe are both not yet up to full fitness.
