South African star Percy Tau was on Wednesday named in the Brighton & Hove Albion starting line-up by head coach Graham Potter for the second time as they face Leicester City at the King Power Stadium in a FA Cup fifth round clash.

It will be Tau's fourth appearance for the Seagulls since making his debut against Newport County in the third round of the FA Cup.

The 26-year-old then made his full debut the following fixture against Manchester City in the Premier League.

Tau has been an unused substitute in Brighton's last four fixtures as Potter has stuck to roughly the same starting 11 that has clinched a surprise win over Liverpool.

The Bafana Bafana star will now be looking to impress and tie down a regular place in the first team after being recalled from Belgium in the January transfer window.
