45+3' - GOAL! Brighton 1-0 Newcastle (Trossard)

21:473 months ago


Hayden is stretchered off the field and replaced by Hendrick – it looks a real nasty injury.


We are into stoppage time here at the AMEX, but we'll be going well over the three minutes added on by the fourth official.

21:423 months ago


Hayden goes down after a collision with Bissouma and it does not look good for the Newcastle midfielder.


Jeff Hendrick is being prepared to come on.

Trossard gets down the right-hand side for Brighton and cuts the ball back to Maupay, but his side-footed effort is blocked by Clark.
21:373 months ago


Shelvey's cross to the far post finds the head of Hayden who cannot steer his effort onto target.
21:353 months ago


Dubravka has gone down needing treatment – and after a minute or so on the deck – he is fine to continue.
21:213 months ago


A little pause in play as Manquillo goes down, he's back up now.


Brighton have dominated this opening 20 minutes, with Newcastle offering next to nothing in the attacking department so far.

21:113 months ago


Bissouma has a drive from the edge of the penalty area but it's easily gathered by Dubravka.
21:043 months ago


Another chance goes begging for Moder!


This one is much better as a cross from Welbeck into the box finds Moder who forces Dubravka into an early save.

21:023 months ago


A let-off early on for Newcastle as Maupay crosses to the back-post towards an unmarked Moder whose half-volley eventually sails over-the-bar.

Newcastle in desperate need of three points

Despite being unbeaten in their last three games, Newcastle are winless in five league matches now they head into their biggest game of the season on the south coast.


If The Magpies reign victorious in this relegation six-pointer, they will move five points clear of 18th placed Fulham, also with a game in hand on Scott Parker's side.

19:243 months ago

Brighton searching for back-to-back wins

After a run of three straight defeats, two of those to sides also in the bottom-half of the table, Brighton grabbed a vital win away at Southampton last weekend – a victory which has put them three points clear of the relegation places.


A win against Newcastle, a side just one point behind them,  will give them some much-needed breathing space in the fight to stay up.
