Albion drew a blank at the Amex – on the day one of their senior strikers appeared close to leaving the club.

The Seagulls were held to a 0-0 draw by Newcastle on an afternoon which began with news of Neal Maupay’s possible move to Nottingham Forest.

Brian Owen looks back at the on-field action and at what Graham Potter said about the game, Maupay – and one of the exciting newer faces in his squad.
