The Rams have made a habit of late action in this season's FA Cup, and Al Hain-Cole expects more of the same against Hughton's men at the Amex

Derby County will be hoping to pull off an FA Cup upset when they travel to the Amex Stadium to take on Brighton on Saturday.

Frank Lampard's men have developed a reputation for giant-killers after overcoming Southampton in the last round, as well as beating Manchester United on penalties in this season's Carabao Cup.

Latest odds

Having lost just one of their last 10 fixtures, they are available at 10/3 (4.33) with bet365 to pull off another shock win against Premier League opposition here.

The Seagulls have not won any of their last seven games in normal time, but are 5/6 (1.83) favourites to take their place in the quarter-finals by coming out on top in this one.

Four of this pair's combined six FA Cup matches so far this season have resulted in draws, and you can get odds of 5/2 (3.50) on this game heading into extra-time after a deadlocked 90 minutes.

Team news

Solly March and Jose Izquierdo are both ruled out through injury, while Florin Andone has been retrospectively suspended for three matches for elbowing West Brom's Sam Field in last week's fourth round replay.

Scott Carson remains sidelined for Derby with a thigh strain, with Mason Mount also a doubt due to a hamstring problem.

Late action

If the Rams are to make it to the FA Cup quarter-finals for the first time since 1999, it's fair to say they will have done it the hard way.

The Championship side came back from 2-0 down in both ties against Southampton before winning on penalties at St Mary's, and left it late to see off a stubborn Accrington Stanley in the last round.

They will probably need to show similar perseverance against Chris Hughton's team, which has conceded before the break in just one of the last 10 matches.

Predictions

In fact, 18 of the last 25 goals scored at either end in Brighton's matches have arrived in the second half, making odds of 21/20 (2.05) seem like solid value on the majority of the action unfolding after half-time for Derby's fourth successive FA Cup clash.

Highest scoring half: Second for a 2pt stake at 21/20 (2.05) with bet365
