Brighton vs Newcastle match preview
Newcastle are already safe from relegation, having bagged some impressive results since Steve Bruce took over at St James’s Park. Brighton still require one point to be numerically safe from the drop and will be keen to secure their safety this evening.
Brighton bagged one point last time out against Southampton. An in-form Danny Ings scored in the 66th minute to cancel out Neal Maupey’s opener.
Newcastle have had less luck recently, losing their last three games. Their last fixture saw Bruce’s men suffer a 3-1 home defeat against Tottenham.
The Magpies will have to reverse that recent form if they are to bag any points this evening, but they are likely to be less motivated than their opposition. Brighton fans will hope that the team’s need to secure safety will see them out-fight Newcastle and get a result. Meanwhile, Newcastle are playing for pride, but also without pressure.
You can catch all the action this evening, live and free, on Sky Sports and Sky Pick.
