In the last match Brighton lost top spot (for what it’s worth at this stage) after a draw at Reading to end a run of impressive wins.

After a midweek League Cup win at Oxford we’re off to Newcastle tomorrow with this a match Chris Hughton will be keen to win against a side he’s previously spent a spell in charge of in recent times.

Newcastle have recovered from a poor start and come into this with a League Cup win and three-points at Bristol City last weekend as the pre-season Championship favourites start to find some form.

What will happen in this one though?

We can say it goes without saying the expectation; most definitely the hope at least, will be for a positive result.
