FT - Brighton 2-0 Newcastle
Andrea Orlandi's well worked opener and Will Hoskins' cool finish proved the difference today. Alan Pardew might quibble about Shola Ameobi's red card, however he cannot argue about the quality of Brighton today
Gus Poyet's side are well worth the win and, along with their Championship promotion run, will give any side a stern test when the fourth-round draw is made on Sunday
Newcastle have won only five of 22 matches since Alan Pardew was given an eight-year contract.
Wayne Bridge has caused trouble on the left flank and put in quality cross for the opener
GOAL - Hoskins
The substitute escapes the offside trap, runs onto a cute through ball from Lopez and slips the ball through Elliott's legs for the second goal
