Sky Sports Pundit Predicts Brighton vs Newcastle

Because of current form and recent results we would expect Brighton to be favorites for tomorrow night’s top of the table game at Brighton.

And certainly Sky Sports pundit David Prutton thinks it will be a close game, but that Brighton will come out as the winners of the game.

David Prutton – Sky Sports pundit

Here’s what David has said on Sky Sports tonight:

“From what I saw of Brighton against a promotion rival on Saturday, they were very, very good.” “Reading had a lot of the ball but Brighton were so clinical.”

“They were decisive and really put them to the sword.” “Chris Hughton’s side go into Tuesday’s match in ridiculously good form and will be full of confidence.”

“Newcastle piled the pressure on Bristol City in the second half and it was an absolute onslaught.” “They should have won that game.”

“It’s all set to be a really close match at the Amex, but I think Brighton have the edge.”

“Their attacking players have been in the goals recently while Newcastle will be missing Dwight Gayle.”

“You worry about Newcastle when he’s not in the team.”

Prutton predicts: 2-1

And Newcastle fans don’t seem too confident of getting a result tomorrow night against Chris Hughton’s side.

    Just been reading shepherds account of when he was chairman of NUFC in the independent.
    It appears that Owen was on 103k a week, bearing in mind that shearer had a clause in his contract stating he would always be the top earner, that’s over 200k a week for them two. Strewth why wonder he says it almost broke the club.

    It was supposed to get us back in the champions league and if he hadn’t got injured playing for England it might have worked.

    Every single time he pays us a smarmy backhander then says we’re going to slip up. Must be painful for him it hardly ever turns out like he hopes.

    Oldgit – I’m well, thank you.

    Another bash at FFS , who unlike Ashley almost broke his neck to get us to win something.

    Doesn’t matter who we play, this w@nker always pips for our opposition. nob.
    We are not playing well but well enough to win – especially away from home I’m much more confident and we will raise our game for this.
    If it was a home game though, we’d get absolutely tw@tted.

    I voted win for a change on this one seeing as the majority seem to be widdling their drawers at the prospect of losing at a seagull – crap covered goldfish bowl in a forsaken seaside shanty town on the nether parts of the country. Get some nuts, as Mr T would say ha ha

    Almost broke his beck to win something while slating the fans, Shearer, and making a couple of quid from NUFC.

    Aye, saint that FFS

    It did make me laugh though when he said he’d of put up more of a battle if he wasn’t ill.

    Aye, he would of got 4p more per share than hall instead of the 1p.

    Charlie, agree with your take on rafa’s football and have been saying same a long time. Because control is everything to Rafa, we end up passing the ball back and sideways a lot. A defeat tomorrow could be very serious. I’m going for a 2-2 draw

    The complaints about the attractiveness of Rafa’s football don’t seem to take into sufficient consideration that he’s setting us up to gain maximum points over the course of the campaign, which surely is of paramount importance this season with promotion the be all and end all. Even considering this, it seems to me we still play very good football and of course going at sides aggressively from the off and for the full 90 minutes obviously leaves us vulnerable to concede, and drop points more often.

    Well we had Shepherd, and now Ashley, when plainly we needed something in between. Which thankfully I think is where Rafa appears to want to operate.

    I’ll try @18 again. Rafa’s trying to get us promoted.

    @18 correct, nobody succeeds in this division playing pretty football. QPR tried it, nearly took them into League 1.

    The trouble is that when the opposition know your not going to pass the ball forward quickly they can put pressure on the ball higher up the pitch.
    This leads to mistakes as some players think they are better than they are and get caught on the ball and either give away posession or a free kick in dangerous areas.
    I dont know what the solution is but sideways an back to retain posession may wear your opponents down but psychologically ,if theyre winning the ball in dangerous areas it wont matter.
    Reading tried that approach vs Brighton and got done in, i hope Rafa watched that match and can see the importance of quick incisive forward play, we need the points now since we lost 2 on saturday.
