Brighton boss Gus Poyet cannot wait to lead his side out at their new Amex home for the first time this weekend.

The Seagulls take on Tottenham on Saturday in a friendly to mark the opening of their new 22,500-seater Amex Stadium, more than 14 years after the final game at their previous home, the Goldstone Ground.

"I've been looking forward to this day since the day I got the job because everyone was talking about this moment," said Poyet.

"I'm not surprised the tickets have sold out because I know how much this stadium means to the whole city.

"On top of that we are playing Spurs so it's going to be a very special day for everyone and I hope we give the fans a lot to cheer about."

Brighton had been tenants at the Withdean Stadium between 1999 and 2011.
