Brighton Preview – Can Brighton grab crucial win?

Brighton will head into this crucial relegation battle against Newcastle United on the back of an important 2-1 win away at south coast rivals, Southampton, which lifted The Seagulls above Newcastle United into 16th place and an important three points above the bottom three.

Brighton had previously suffered a worrying three-match losing streak as they were handed defeats by Crystal Palace, Wolves and Leicester City, but that win at Southampton will have settled the nerves amongst the Brighton camp.

However, wins at home have been hard to come by as Brighton have managed just one win all season on home turf amidst a record of 1-7-6 13/19 so the goals market appeals here as eight of Brighton’s 14 home matches have been under 2.5 goals.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Newcastle United Preview – Can Magpies move away from drop-zone?

Three draws on the trot have handed Newcastle United three valuable points in their quest to avoid relegation but they haven’t been enough to prevent the visitors from slipping deeper towards the lower reaches of the Premier League as they now sit just one league place and two points above the bottom three.

Indeed, Newcastle have now failed to win any of their last five matches overall while managing just two wins out of their last 17 matches suggests that an away win for The Magpies here would seem unlikely, especially as they’ve won just once in their last nine matches on the road.

The goals market again looks attractive here as 11 of Newcastle’s 14 away matches have also resulted in under 2.5 goals.
