Brighton v Newcastle LIVE: Two changes for Magpies but Kell Watts missing


Hello and welcome to our live blog on Newcastle United’s penultimate clash of the season at Brighton.Steve Bruce’s injured side will aim to avoid their fourth consecutive Premier League defeat at Amex Stadium on Wednesday night.

However, the Magpies will do without the services of up to eight first-team players against Graham Potter’s side, who need an extra point to ensure safety.

Kell Watts, a graduate of the Academy, is online for his high-level black and white debut, Federico Fernandez being the only other central defender available for selection.

The parties played a goalless draw at St James’ Park in September, with the visitors enjoying the division of possession and controlling the proceedings without creating many openings.

United will be looking for their first Amex win since 2017, when goals from Mo Diame and Ayoze Perez secured a vital victory on their way to the league title.
