Cape Town - Brighton goalkeeper Mathew Ryan is
looking forward to the trip to Newcastle United and believes the
Seagulls should be optimistic about the game.
Chris Hughton's charges came away with a point last season, as they
drew 0-0 at St James' Park, and Ryan played a key role in the draw as he
made a few important saves.
He told the press: "It's a great atmosphere up there, and it's a great arena to play football.
managed to take four points off them last season with a draw away and a
win at home, so we can go up there with some confidence.
happy to make a couple of saves and keep a clean sheet in the game up
there, and I enjoyed the challenge. Even though we couldn't get the
winner, I thoroughly enjoyed the match."
Brighton come into the Newcastle clash on the back of a 1-0 victory
over West Ham United, prior to the international break. They are 13th in
the Premier League standings.
