    • Brighton and Hove Albion
    • Newcastle United
    • 90+3' The full-time whistle goes at the Amex Stadium, and Brighton have dumped Newcastle out of the FA Cup for the second season in succession with a 2-0 win courtesy of goals from Orlandi and Hoskins. Brighton thoroughly deserve their place in the fourth round. Thanks for your company, and stick around for the 15:00 kick-offs.
    • 90+2' The home fans are ecstatic, and Newcastle are just keen for this match to end now.
    • 90+1' Dicker and Hoskins continue to put the Newcastle back four under tremendous pressure, and the visitors have been dreadful today.
    • 90' There will be four added minutes at the end of this second half.
    • 89' Marveaux attempts to inspire his side from midfield, but Brighton are very comfortable.
    • 87' GOAL! Brighton double their lead and surely close out the match! Hoskins times his run perfectly to get in behind Williamson, and he produces a cool finish to beat Elliot and round off what is surely a third-round win for Brighton over Newcastle!
    • 85' LuaLua is looking very bright against his former club, and he drives a shot agonisingly wide of the near post.
    • 84' It is Brighton on the front foot in the final minutes now as a free kick picks out Barnes, who heads over the bar.
    • 83' A final change is made by Poyet as Andrew Crofts replaces Dean Hammond.
    • 82' Santon loses the ball very sloppily to LuaLua, and Pardew is again out on the touchline berating his player.
    • 81' Ranger and Ameobi pressure the Brighton backline again but the ball deflects behind off the latter for a goal-kick.
    • 80' The travelling supporters have not stopped singing all afternoon, and they will want to see a big challenge from their side in the final 10 minutes.
    • 79' There is yet another chance for Newcastle to get the ball into the Brighton area from a free-kick, but El-Abd heads clear.
    • 77' Poyet is furious with referee Probert for not letting the game flow with his side looking to break through Hoskins.
    • 76' Ranger heads wide from close range after fine work from Anita outwide, and this is much better at last from the visitors.
    • 75' Newcastle are beginning to see more of the ball, and they are finally showing some urgency with just 15 minutes to go.
    • 73' Marveaux has a powerful volley superbly blocked by Bridcutt, and he makes an early impact for the visitors.
    • 72' Sylvain Marveaux comes on to replace the ineffectual Gabriel Obertan in what is Newcastle's third and final change.
    • 71' Will Hoskins comes on for Brighton to provide fresh legs. Mackail-Smith makes way.
    • 69' Sammy Ameobi crosses from the right but there are no Newcastle players in the box and El-Abd clears under no pressure.
    • 67' Brighton are keeping the ball very comfortably, and Newcastle have it all to do with Ranger and Sammy Ameobi tasked with leading the fightback.
    • 66' If you're wondering where that leaves Newcastle's chances, the bookies have now put the visitors out to 25/1 with the chances of a replay 6/1.
    • 65' Pardew's frustrations have been compounded by that red card for his skipper, and he will face a suspension to make matters worse.
    • 63' Shola Ameobi is sent off for a second yellow card! Both were very soft challenges, and it's a late challenge on Lopez that sees the Newcastle captain receive his second booking.
    • 61' The enigmatic winger faces his former club, and the crowd are delighted about the change.
    • 60' LuaLua does come on now as he replaces the goalscorer Orlandi, who has already made a huge impact.
    • 59' Greer finds Bridcutt, but his through ball for Mackail-Smith is just overhit.
    • 57' LuaLua gets another huge roar from the Brighton fans as he warms up again, and he's desperately trying to show his manager that he should come on.
    • 56' Lopez almost picks out Mackail-Smith with a raking diagonal ball, but his cross is just off target.
    • 55' Bridcutt continues to look bright, and he combines with Barnes and then Orlandi before Santon intervenes.
    • 53' Santon produces a good run before laying the ball off to Ranger, whose shot is just off target.
    • 52' The home fans are in full voice as Brighton keep the ball very comfortably in their half, and Newcastle have to chase the game.
    • 51' Bridge is causing Tavernier all sorts of problems at the moment down the Brighton left, and the 32-year-old is winning the foot races comfortably.
    • 50' It's slow going for Newcastle on the ball, and the build-up play is too sluggish at the moment.
    • 49' Brighton are enjoying the best of the play early in the second half, and Pardew's changes do not seem to have inspired his players thus far.
    • 48' Santon does very well to clean up at the back for Newcastle with Mackail-Smith lurking after a very poor ball from Tavernier. Shola Ameobi is booked for a clumsy challenge.
    • 47' Mackail-Smith goes down in the Newcastle box yet again, this time under a challenge from Williamson, but again referee Probert is very unimpressed.
    • 46' The second half is under way, and Pardew has reacted to his side going behind by making two changes at the break, with James Perch and Mehdi Abeid replaced by Paul Dummett and forward Nile Ranger at half-time.

    • 45+1' The half-time whistle goes at the Amex Stadium, and Brighton lead Newcastle 1-0 courtesy of Andrea Orlandi's very well-taken goal in the 33rd minute. Newcastle have looked very flat with a much-changed side, and the Premier League side have it all to do in the second half.
    • 45' There will be just one added minute at the end of the first half, and Pardew will be preparing a half-time rollicking, surely.
    • 44' Perch and Williamson combine to clear under pressure, and Brighton are continuing to put the visitors under pressure.
    • 43' Newcastle are going to need a change of gameplan in the second half, because Brighton are very comfortable at the back.
    • 42' There are whistles from the home fans as Anita fires over with a speculative effort, and Pardew does not look remotely happy!
    • 41' El-Abd lets fly from the edge of the Newcastle box after a marauding run, but his shot drifts well over the crossbar.
    • 40' A few challenges fly in on halfway, and Probert takes on action beyond having a stern word with Bigirimana and Bridcutt, respectively.
    • 39' Abeid is booked for a late challenge on Hammond, and that was just clumsy on halfway.
    • 38' Brighton have their opponents very much under the cosh now, and Newcastle are hanging on before half time.
    • 37' Anita sizes up a chance from 30 yards but the execution is poor and he fires well wide of the target.
    • 36' Poyet's celebration for the goal was superb - a kind of Kriss Akabusi-style fist pump!
    • 35' Newcastle attempt to respond quickly through Shola Ameobi, but his shot from the edge of the box is tame and comfortably saved by Ankergren.
    • 34' Newcastle have not won away in the FA Cup since a 2-0 victory at Cheltenham in January 2006, and they are behind in the first half here.
    • 33' GOAL! A long ball upfield from Greer is met by Bridge at the left byline, and Orlandi does superbly to take the ball down and volley beyond Elliot on the turn from inside the Newcastle box! Brighton are in front, and this game has suddenly come to life!
    • 31' The Seagulls have only lost one of their last 12 FA Cup games on home soil, and have not been eliminated from the competition at home since 2008.
    • 30' Newcastle continue to grow into the match, and the visitors are seeing much more of the ball now than earlier on.
    • 29' Santon produces a fine run and cross down the left, but again there is no one in the box to get on the end of the delivery.
    • 28' The game has suddenly gone a bit flat as Newcastle keep the ball on halfway without any real urgency.
    • 27' Bigirimana is dropping deeper and deeper to collect the ball from the back, and he is seeing a lot more of it now.
    • 26' The set piece is taken towards the far post, but it's over Williamson's head, and it's a waste. Earlier, Hammond was booked for a challenge on Sammy Ameobi, with referee Probert letting play continue before going to his cards.
    • 25' Barnes bundles over Sammy Ameobi on halfway, and Newcastle have a chance to pile bodies into the box.
    • 24' Santon takes the ball down the left before cutting inside and finding Anita, but another move breaks down as Hammond steps in.
    • 23' The travelling support from Newcastle is again incredible - they comfortably sold out their allocation, and are making a lot of noise!
    • 22' Brighton have won three of their last five FA Cup games against higher-ranked sides, including that victory over the Magpies last term.
    • 21' Bigirimana stings the palms of Ankergren with a fierce strike from the edge of the Brighton box, and Adam El-Abd has to head safely behind for a corner as the goalkeeper fails to hold the shot!
    • 20' Obertan stretches his legs out on the right, before cutting the ball back with Greer able to clear. A shame after such a promising run.
    • 19' The home fans are really enjoying their side's possession, and the hosts continue to take the match to their Premier League opponents.
    • 18' Anita forces his way to the edge of the Brighton box, but he dallies and loses control of the ball as the home defence clean up.
    • 17' Kazenga LuaLua is already warming up very vigorously on the touchline, and he will be desperate to get on at some stage against Newcastle.
    • 16' Newcastle finally enjoy a good period of possession, and Bigirimana and Abeid begin to show what they are capable of in the midfield.
    • 15' Brighton continue to keep the ball very effectively, and Gus Poyet's side are pressing high up the field.
    • 14' David Lopez drives a surprising shot from the right instead of crossing into the box, and it fizzes into Elliot's hands!
    • 13' Newcastle are still very much on the backfoot, and Bridge is seeing a lot of the ball down the left for the hosts. /// Thanks to @Hilman_Hzm, who predicts a 2-0 win to Newcastle with goals from each of the Ameobi brothers. What do others think?
    • 12' The Ameobi brothers are not managing to put the Brighton defence under much pressure early on, but they have had precious little service so far.
    • 11' Elliot races off his line to gather a loose ball inside the Newcastle box, and that's confident goalkeeping.
    • 10' Mackail-Smith and Barnes both go down under pressure in the Newcastle box, but referee Probert is not impressed with either.
    • 9' Brighton have made a very bright start, and Newcastle need to keep the ball much better than they have done so far.
    • 8' Perch clears off the line with a timely intervention as Gary Dicker loops a shot towards the far post after fine work from Ashley Barnes!
    • 7' Bridge produces a driving run down the left, before Bridcutt finds Barnes with a cracking cross-field ball.
    • 6' Obertan jinks inside from the right and shoots rather tamely straight at Ankergren, and that's Newcastle's first real opening in the Brighton half.
    • 5' Brighton and Newcastle have met four times before in the FA Cup; the Magpies progressed in the first meeting in 1930, but the Seagulls have since won the last three ties including in the fourth round last season.
    • 4' The pitch is not great, it has to be said, but Brighton keep the ball at the back comfortably, before Bridcutt takes it down the left. /// @Machekanoluc reckons Newcastle will win this match 3-1, while Sammy O believes Brighton will come through 2-1.
    • 3' The corner is taken short, before Dean Hammond blasts a wild shot way over the crossbar from the edge of the box. He's furious with himself!
    • 2' Mackail-Smith storms down the right for the hosts, and Perch has to make a fine challenge on the stretch to concede an early corner.
    • 1' The first half is under way at the Amex Stadium, and Brighton kick off. Newcastle are in their all dark red change strip.
    • 12:58 The referee for this afternoon's clash is Lee Probert. The players emerge from the tunnel, and we're all set for kick off.
