How can I watch Brighton and Hove v Newcastle United? Is there a stream? What's the latest team news?

Newcastle United travel to Brighton and Hove Albion in what is a Premier League six-pointer at the bottom end of the table.

Wednesday, 17th March 2021, 6:36 pm

Steve Bruce’s side remain just two points outside the relegation zone, and could drop below the dreaded red line before kick-off at the Amex Stadium.

Indeed, victory for 18th place Fulham on Friday evening at home to Leeds United would heap pressure on the Magpies and Saturday’s hosts.

Realistically, following Brighton’s 2-1 win at Southampton last time out, it is a must-win tie for United in their battle against the drop.
