Chris Hughton: "It's a big week, and it's a big week for both clubs. I suppose it will be a fair indication for where we both are at the moment.
"Of course, our priority at the moment is the first game here at St James', and it's one that will give us a massive boost if we are able to win it.
"The objectives were to win the game - if it was possible to do that with a good performance, then even better, and even better still if we came through unscathed with no injuries.
"All three of those, we have managed to do."
