Evening all, and welcome to the final tie of FA Cup third round week - it's the latest renewal of the A23 derby as Brighton host Crystal Palace

The draw has just been made for the fourth round, and a trip to Middlesbrough in four weeks time will await the winner, for Palace, it would be to face former boss Tony Pulis

Big thing tonight is this is the first competitive game in England to use the VAR system. Hopefully this is the first stage in getting robots to referee games.

We'll be back shortly, we're just under 15 minutes from kick-off. This game finished goalless when the teams met at the Amex in the Premier League just over a month ago

Here we go then, the teams out as Sussex By The Sea blurs out around the ground

A little surprising for a derby, a lot of empty seats. The VAR team are based at Stockley Park well out west in London, where I occasionally work would you believe

Here we go, we're underway! 0-0 (1)

Schlupp and Brown go into a 50-50 and both get hurt. Ouch. 0-0 (2)

Both players got up and continued, but Browm has since gone down again. Can't see his night lasting much longer, looks like a knee job. 0-0 (6)
