Brighton and Hove Albion v Newcastle United Match Preview & Trends

Saturday evening sees a massive collision between two sides battling against relegation as Newcastle make the long trip down to Brighton in what is being described as a ‘6 pointer’. A draw wouldn’t really help either side’s cause and would leave Brighton still just a single point ahead of Newcastle Utd in the league table. If the honours are even it would be The Seagull’s 4th consecutive home match without win and would in turn extend The Magpies search for a victory to a 6th straight match. 66% of Brighton’s points have been earned away so home form improvement will be a crucial element of their survival bid and something Graham Potter will need to address in the remaining fixtures to keep his side afloat. Newcastle Utd have scored 39% of their goals after the 75th minute so if Steve Bruce’s men can start games quicker and get up to speed faster then they will have a better chance of getting results. They are currently just two points above the drop zone and have ten games left to decide their future. A draw against Villa last time out took them onto 28 points and left them in 17th position in the table. Brighton beat rivals Southampton in the last match, moving to 16th place on 29 points, a result that brought their first taste of victory in 5 Premier League games. In their last six league matches, Brighton have won one, drawn two and lost three. Newcastle, meanwhile, have won one, drawn three and lost two in their last six.
