Brighton and Hove Albion v Newcastle United: Latest FA Cup team news

Have your say

Newcastle skipper Fabricio Coloccini is a doubt for tomorrow evening’s FA Cup fourth round trip to Brighton.

The Argentinian defender tweaked his groin in training yesterday and will be assessed before manager Alan Pardew makes a decision on him.

Strikers Demba Ba and Papiss Demba Cisse remain on African Nations up duty with Senegal, but are expected to return early next week, while defender Steven Taylor (Achilles) and midfielders Sylvain Marveaux (groin) and Sammy Ameobi (knee) are still on the long-term casualty list, although all are making progress.

Provisional squad: Krul, Elliot, Harper, Simpson, R. Taylor, Santon, Ferguson, Perch, Coloccini, Williamson, Kadar, Cabaye, Obertan, Ben Arfa, Gutierrez, Gosling, Abeid, Vuckic, Best, Shola Ameobi, Lovenkrands.
