Lee Mason will take charge of Albion’s FA Cup third round tie away at Newport County on Sunday (7:45pm, BT Sport).

It will be the first time that Mason has been in charge of the Seagulls this season.

However, Albion's record is not great when he is in the middle.

On the ten occasions Mason has refereed the Seagulls during his career, they have failed to win any (drawn seven, lost three).
