Steve Bruce’s side appeared far less than Brighton, scored by Leandro Trussard, Danny Welbeck and Neil Mobay.
Newcastle has not shot a ball on goal and has not achieved any victory in the last six games, and is in 17th place two points behind struggling Fulham, and until his suffering worsens, midfielder Isaac Hayden was injured and appeared to be suffering from a serious knee injury, before Trussard scored the first goal. Just before a break.
“The psychological state is at its worst,” said Newcastle player Ryan Fraser, who hit the post shortly before Brighton’s second goal. We weren’t playing well, it was a game to win after we had appeared well in recent weeks, but that didn’t happen.
He continued: We suffered a strong blow because of receiving the target before the break and after the injury. The second goal was exactly the same as the first goal .. We now need to save our season.
Although Newcastle have tied in their last three matches, they have won only twice in their last 18 games and will face a tough series of matches after the international break.
Fraser continued: We are outside the relegation zone and still have matches. If we win the next match, things will look great again. We still have a match with Fulham.
Bruce is under increasing pressure after he described the night as painful, and said: We were not quite close to the level we want. I take full responsibility, we feel very frustrated.
