Both sides are in danger of sliding into the bottom three as Fulham mount a late challenge to avoid the Championship.

The pair each have 10 Premier League fixtures remaining and whoever claims three points on Saturday will see it as a giant step towards survival.

Brighton beat Southampton 2-1 last time out to end a three-game losing streak and restore some confidence within the squad.

Newcastle, meanwhile, have drawn their last three games and boss Steve Bruce would probably take a point here in order to avoid what may otherwise be a deflating defeat.

Our prediction: Brighton v Newcastle

Newcastle may have ground out three successive draws but they have arguably been second best in each encounter. Saturday sees them come up against a regimented Brighton side that has attacking failings of their own.

This could well be another tight clash. Bruce has got his players defending again and would gladly take a point from the trip south.

It will be down to Brighton, therefore, to take the game to the Magpies. Last week Leandro Trossard scored only his second goal since the first day of the season in the win over Southampton and the winger will have to step up again here.

Our prediction: Brighton 1-0 Newcastle (5/1 at bet365)
