Saints' youngsters will look to return to winning ways against the visiting Seagulls in Premier League 2 tonight, after last week's Norwich setback.

Keen for an immediate reaction, captain Alfie Jones has turned his attention to the hectic fixture calendar over the next eight days, where the Under-23s will be competing in three separate competitions.

"It is a schedule we'll look forward to," Jones began. "We want to play as many games as possible as young players. Having three games in eight days is good for us.

"We want to get back on track and put things right, because it wasn't the best performance or result [against Norwich].

"Monday [against Brighton] is a chance to address that. We've been working all week, and hopefully it comes together on Monday night."

Asked about any added edge of playing fellow south coast side Brighton, the 20-year-old responded: "There is rivalry, yeah, we haven't played them the last couple of years, but we've got the chance to do so now, and show what we're capable of as individuals and as a club."
