The Albion lost twice in one day in fixtures 15 miles apart. The Seagulls went down 2-1 to Luton Town in a 2pm kick off at Kenilworth Road and 1-0 at Stevenage Borough.

The Albion side at Luton lined up as Maenpaa; Collar, Dunk, Cadman Dunk; Knockaert, Ince, Sidwell, Skalak; Manu, Murray.

The Seagulls wore their red third strip.

Jack Marriott scored for Luton within 30 seconds of kick off.

Lewis Dunk equalised for Albion just before half time. Dunk is reportedly the subject of £7 million bid by West Bromwich Albion.

Marriott scored his second of the match, midway through the second half.

In the second match of the day – a 5.30pm kick off at Stevenage Borough – the Seagulls lined up as Stockdale; Bruno, Hall, Hunt, Rosenior; Murphy, Kayal, Holla, LuaLua; Hemed, Baldock.

Danny Holla, again making an Albion start, linked up well with Beram Kayal, with Dale Stephens absent again.

Rowan Liburd scored for the hosts after 31 minutes.

Albion wore their new black away kit for this one.

Despite overwhelming possession the Seagulls lost 1-0.

Bradley Roscoe, a triallist from Fleetwood, played 20 minutes for Albion in the second half.

The only Albion-related winner of the day was chairman Tony Bloom whose horse Librisa Breeze won the Gigaset Stakes at Ascot having been the subject of a huge off-course gamble pre-race.
