Soccer – Hughton has faith in Knockaert

Chris Hughton believes French forward Anthony Knockaert has plenty to offer Brighton in the next few months, starting against Tottenham at Wembley on Wednesday. The 26-year-old will return to the Seagulls squad for the clash after missing Saturday's 2-0 defeat at Huddersfield Town. Knockaert has scored just once so far this season but is 13/2 with bet365 to score at any time against Spurs. Hughton said: "It's tougher for him (than last season), the same as everybody. "But if I am looking at the goals and assists he had last season, he is up against better full-backs and better players." Brighton can be backed at 5/2 to be relegated this season.
