FABRICIO COLOCCINI will miss Newcastle United's FA Cup fourth round tie at Brighton and Hove Albion this evening.

Alan Pardew admitted this week that the Argentinian was a doubt for the game at the American Express Community Stadium, and the centre-half is replaced in the Magpies' backline by James Perch.

Other than that, Newcastle are unchanged, against Championship side Brighton who are missing their influential winger Craig Noone through injury.
