Seagulls and Magpies battle for cup glory!
Venue: Falmer Stadium, Brighton.
Date: Sat 5th January, 2013.

Referee: Lee Probert (Wilts).
UK TV: ITV1.

I will also be publishing the official teamsheets for the game below when they become available. If I may borrow a little from the preview mentioned above, here’s what Alan Pardew and Gus Poyet have been saying about the forthcoming game: (more…)
