Albion prospect Todd Miller could be in for a special night at the Papa John’s Trophy.
The former Colchester United youngster is expected to take on his old club when the Seagulls Under-21 side start their group stage with a trip to Essex (7.45pm).
Andrew Crofts’ side clinched their first league win of the season on Saturday as Evan Ferguson’s hat-trick resulted in a 4-1 win at Leicester.
Miller made his Colchester debut as a very late substitute at Exeter towards the end of the 2018/19 season when he was just 16.
He moved to Albion in the summer and was particularly impressive in a Trophy game at Forest Green last year.
The Crofts youngsters could have an interesting test tonight.
Colchester, 20th in League Two, will give a host of players a chance to shine in the Papa Johns Trophy tonight.
The US squad has been strengthened in recent days with the addition of Matty Longstaff, Kwesi Appiah (on loan from Crawley) and Beryly Lubala.
