Seagulls upset Magpies

Published Add your comment

Brighton repeated last season's FA Cup heroics by dumping an under-strength Newcastle out of the competition with a 2-0 victory after Andrea Orlandi supplied an outstanding opener at Amex Stadium.

The first-half strike was born out of Wayne Bridge's willingness to chase a seemingly lost cause, but it was Orlandi's exquisite touch, turn and shoot that stole the show. The Spanish playmaker was applauded by Brighton and Newcastle fans alike as he departed with half an hour to go having scored a goal that required repeat viewings to appreciate its brilliance.

The second was delivered by substitute Will Hoskins, who tucked home David Lopez's defence-splitting pass, as the npower Championship play-off hopefuls completed a comfortable win.
