The youngster signed for Brighton this season.

Brighton boss Gus Poyet: “I hope to have Kazenga LuaLua and Craig Noone in the team but that will depend on how they recover from yesterday.

“They have been training, in different ways because they have different bodies, but they have been doing sessions outside, running and ball work.

“The good thing with Kaz is he’s not the type of player who won’t do anything in training and then just play. He needs to do what he does in games during training, so he needs to do it Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday.

“With Nooney it’s a bit different. His ability to go past people is not so much about speed and over a long distance. He can get the ball in a tight space where as Kazenga is more about speed and power.”

Newcastle are preparing for Saturday’s fourth round tie at The Amex with a warm weather break in Tenerife and could have Watford defender Adrian Mariappa aboard by then.
