  • That is it - Brighton comfortably into the fourth round. Thanks for your company today.

  • There will be three added minutes. Lua Lua goes on another run into the Toon box but is not quite sure where he is going and soon loses the ball.

  • Dummett nearly caught out by Sanchez in the left-back position but he recovers well enough to clear.

  • GOAL BRIGHTON: Hoskins looks to have sealed it for hosts as Lopez finds him with a pinpoint pass in the Toon box and he slides the ball under Elliot with the minimum of fuss.

  • Lua Lua has proved a real handful since his introduction and he fires a 20-yard shot just wide of the upright.

  • Corner to Brighton on the left.

  • Hammond off and Andrew Crofts on for the home team.

  • Lua Lua sets up Bridge on the edge of the Toon area but his shot loops off James Tavernier and goes behind.

  • Ranger and Ameobi pressure the Brighton backline again but the ball deflects behind off the latter for a goal-kick.

  • It is all Toon as they seek an equaliser. Would not be the biggest shock in the world either judged on the last 10 minutes.

  • Another chance for Newcastle to get the ball into the Brighton area from a free-kick but El-Abd heads clear.

  • Great cross from the left by Dummett and Ankergren once again has to be called into action to palm the ball away.

  • Ranger wins a header from a free-kick on the edge of the Brighton box but Ameobi can't get the ball out from under his feet. More pressure from Newcastle and Ankergren is forced to claw the ball away after a deflected Ameobi cross.

  • Marveaux has a powerful volley superbly blocked by Bridcutt. The subsequent corner is headed back across the six-yard box by Williamson and Ranger then heads over the bar.

  • Ranger has the chance to cross down the left but there is no support. He tries to go back to find a team-mate but his pass is cut out.

  • Will Hoskins on for Mackail-Smith while Sylvain Marveaux comes into the game for Obertain.

  • Anita fires a deep diagonal ball for Santon to chase on the edge of the Brighton area but it is far too strong.

  • Sammy Ameobi crosses from the right but there are no Newcastle players in the box and El-Abd clears under no pressure.

  • Obertain shoved off the ball in midfield and it is all to easy for the home side.
