Highlights: Brighton 2-0 Newcastle

The first match of the FA Cup third round saw an upset as Barclays Premier League side Newcastle went out 2-0 to npower Championship Brighton at Amex Stadium.

The Seagulls repeated last season's cup heroics by dumping an under-strength Magpies out of the competition with Andrea Orlandi supplying an outstanding opener.

The first-half strike was born out of Wayne Bridge's willingness to chase a seemingly lost cause, but it was Orlandi's touch, turn and fine shot that stole the show.

The second was delivered by substitute Will Hoskins, who tucked home David Lopez's defence-splitting pass, as the play-off hopefuls completed a comfortable win.

Newcastle were further frustrated by captain Shola Ameobi's second-half sending off.

Ameobi was deeply unlucky to receive the second yellow from referee Lee Probert and will miss Saturday's match against Norwich.
