Fancy A Flutter Against The Seagulls?

Official Betting Partner Bet Butler provides Magpies fans with some tips ahead of Saturday's FA Cup clash at Brighton

Newcastle United travel to Brighton and Hove Albion in the third round of the FA Cup on Saturday afternoon (12.30pm kick-off).

And after losing to the Seagulls in the fourth round of the competition last season, the Magpies will be looking for revenge.

The bookies give Newcastle the edge, as you would expect, but it could be a tight game with Brighton drawing six of their 13 home fixtures in the Championship this season.

Newcastle should take this at 2.68, but correct score Newcastle 1-0 is more appealing at 11.0.

United are expected to be without Chelsea-bound Demba Ba, but the Senegalese striker's absence could have less of an impact than you would think.

Newcastle have certainly scored fewer goals in the games Ba has missed, but they've also had less goals against - just one per game - and average more points when he hasn't played. Under 2.5 match goals (two goals or less) looks good value at 2.06.

In terms of goalscoring, this could now be Papiss Cisse's time to shine this season, and the striker is 7.50 to score first against Brighton on Saturday.
