Brighton Cup Date Confirmed

The date for Newcastle's FA Cup with Budweiser third round tie at Brighton has been set, with the game selected for live television broadcast

By Dan King - Newcastle United Club Reporter

United's FA Cup with Budweiser third round tie at Brighton and Hove Albion has been selected for live television broadcast, and will be played on Saturday, 5th January.

Kick-off at the Amex Stadium will be 12.30pm with the cameras hoping for another shock from the Seagulls, who beat the Magpies in last season's fourth round.

ITV will be showing the game, which will be the 18th time out of the last 24 FA Cup and League cup ties that Newcastle have came out of the hat as the away team.

And United will be looking to improve upon a miserable FA Cup record against the Sussex outfit. Since a fifth round meeting in 1929/30, which United won 3-0, the Albion have had the upper hand in this tie.

In 1982/83, the sides drew 1-1 at the old Goldstone Ground before Brighton won the third round replay 1-0 at St. James' Park.

In 1985/86, the Seagulls won 2-0 on Tyneside - again in the third round - before last season's defeat.
