Wing wizard Craig Noone has said he will no celebrate if he finds the net in Sunday’s FA Cup clash with his boyhood idols.
The Liverpudlian has come back into the Brighton side after a spell one the sidelines as in line for at least a place on the bench against the Reds.
However, he has said this week that were he to notch, he won’t be going over the top – out of respect for his beloved Liverpool and to avoid being left in the doghouse by his friends and family.
Noone, who once roofed Steven Gerrard’s luxury Cheshire home, is hopeful of making the starting line-up alongside fellow Liverpool fanatic Alan Navarro.
And, after Newcastle fan Will Buckley played such a key role in knocking out the Geordies in the previous round, both will be confident of having a big say in proceedings.
Brighton boss Gustavo Poyet however has warned his players there will be no room for sentiment when it comes to picking his team.
Poyet famous left out former player of the year Andy Whing when the Stripes visited his beloved Aston Villa – leaving the full-back, who had a season ticket at Villa Park, to watch from the stands.
