Newcastle United have shifted just 800 tickets this week for the Brighton clash

The Gazette did a count on Thursday last week, where around 8,900 seats remained on general sale for the visit of Graham Potter’s men.

And with the game now just over 24 hours away, United have only been able to shift another 800 tickets with the attendance set to rival the 44,157 set against Watford last month.

Like the Hornets, Brighton are not expected to bring much of an away following given it is their largest journey of the season.

Interestingly, the unsold tickets do not factor in the away fans. There is also the option for fans to watch it on TV with Sky Sports broadcasting live in what is a 5:30pm kick-off.
