  1. Post update

    Brighton 1-0 Newcastle

    Ciaran Clark comes to Newcastle's rescue, getting ahead of Tomer Hemed to hammer clear Solly March's cross from the right.

    What Dwight Gayle's introduction does is raise doubts in the Brighton defence because of the striker's pace. As a result the defence is always dropping deeper and deeper.

  3. SUBSTITUTION

    Brighton 1-0 Newcastle

    Off goes Anthony Knockaert, on comes Jamie Murphy. Fresh legs and more discipline as Brighton look to close this out under increasing pressure.

  4. Post update

    Brighton 1-0 Newcastle

    Chance!

    DeAndre Yedlin's cross from the right is flicked on by Dwight Gayle, is headed away from Jonjo Shelvey but falls to Christian Atsu at the back post. The bounce is not favourable for the winger, though, and he cannot generate enough power with his hooked effort. Mat Ryan gathers.

  5. Post update

    Brighton 1-0 Newcastle

    No. No, it won't be costly. Jonjo Shelvey beats the wall but also clears the bar with his effort.

    They are simply not testing Mat Ryan.

  6. YELLOW CARD

    Brighton 1-0 Newcastle

    Clumsy. Shane Duffy takes out Ayoze Perez near the edge of his own box to earn a yellow and give away a dangerous free-kick. Will it be costly?

    Yellow card for Shane Duffy
  7. HITS THE WOODWORK

    Brighton 1-0 Newcastle

    Did Jonjo Shelvey mean this? He strikes his corner towards goal and almost catches out Mat Ryan as the ball smacks against the base of the post.

  8. Post update

    Brighton 1-0 Newcastle

    A direct ball towards Dwight Gayle draws a defensive header from Lewis Dunk that concedes a corner...

  9. SUBSTITUTION

    Brighton 1-0 Newcastle

    Another United change. This time in attack. Dwight Gayle replaces Joselu, who has done very little.

  10. SUBSTITUTION

    Brighton 1-0 Newcastle

    First change for Newcastle as Rafa looks to gain some control in midfield. Jonjo Shelvey comes on for Isaac Hayden. Creativity for industry.

  11. Post update

    Brighton 1-0 Newcastle

    To what extent have Newcastle lost their way in this game? Well, their last shot on target came from Matt Ritchie - and that was in the 38th minute.

  13. Post update

    Brighton 1-0 Newcastle

    Lewis Dunk almost gets his side into a world of bother. Under no pressure he gives the ball away in his own half with a loose pass, prompting Ayoze Perez to drive to the edge of the box before finding Matt Ritchie. Fortunately for Dunk, Ritchie's radar malfunctions and he pulls his shot wide.

  14. 'Brighton's confidence lifted'

    It is amazing what a goal can do for you. The confidence of the team has been lifted, as has the atmosphere.

  15. Post update

    Brighton 1-0 Newcastle

    A small spell of Brighton pressure ends with a long throw that Bruno hurls at Shane Duffy, whose header inside the box loops into the grasp of Rob Elliot.

  16. Post update

    Brighton 1-0 Newcastle

    Nearly!

    The free-kick is poor, straight into the wall, but following up is Mikel Merino, whose shot takes a nick off Shane Duffy that carries it just a yard or two past the post.

    Can United make anything of the corner? No, is the answer.

  17. Post update

    Brighton 1-0 Newcastle

    Free-kick to Newcastle. A dangerous one too, just over 20 yards from goal. Matt Ritchie is over it...

  18. Post update

    Brighton 1-0 Newcastle

    Well played Shane Duffy. Newcastle charge forward and the ball is played in low towards Joselu, but before the striker can get a touch, Duffy is in to tackle and clear.

    David Thackeray: A pleasant game to watch, but when are Referees going to clamp down on the wrestling in the box?

  20. Post update

    Brighton 1-0 Newcastle

    Tomer Hemed has had a hand in 20 goals in his last 23 league starts at the Amex Stadium for Brighton (15 goals, five assists). Not bad. Not bad at all.
