Chris Hughton will return to his former club on Saturday as Brighton & Hove Albion make the long trip north to take on Newcastle United at St James Park. 

Despite making an encouraging start to their respective Premier League campaigns, both sides are now looking anxiously over their shoulders as the sides at the bottom of the league start to make ground up on them. The two teams that were embroiled in a battle for the Sky Bet Championship title for most of last season are now edging nearer to a relegation dog-fight. 

Brighton have managed just one win in their last nine league games whilst for Newcastle it is one win in eleven. 

The Seagulls won 1-0 in the reverse fixture at the Amex back in September but have not won at St James Park since 1992. This is only the second top-flight meeting between the two sides, with this season seeing Brighton play in the Premier League for the very first time.  

Newcastle United will be hoping to end a run of five consecutive home defeats in the top-flight. A sixth defeat when Brighton visit will equal the club record, set back in 1953. 

Toon boss, Rafa Benitez, is aiming to become just the third foreign manager to claim 150 Premier League wins after Arsene Wenger (468) and Jose Mourinho (171). In his pre-match press conference, Benitez said, "We want to win and we think we can win, but Brighton will be thinking exactly the same. We'll try to score goals and play at the level we did at West Ham. These are the games where people expect us to compete and to win, so my concern is to approach the games with the belief that we can win." 

Former Newcastle boss and current manager of Brighton, Chris Hughton, said "Newcastle are a team we know very well, we know they have a lot of quality. They haven't had the best of times of late but we know on a good day for them they can be a fairly formidable team, they have enough quality to make them very dangerous opponents."
