Brighton and Newcastle were automatically promoted to the Premier League last season but it was the Magpies who dramatically won the title on the final day, finishing one point ahead of Chris Hughton's side, who took just a single point from their final three games.

And Ritchie - who set up both United's goals at St James's Park - isn't getting carried away with the club's three-game winning run.

Newcastle face Brighton at the Amex Stadium this Sunday.

Bruno, Glenn Murray, Izzy Brown and Gaetan Bong will all be available for Brighton.

Aleksandar Mitrovic is suspended for the game, while left-back duo Paul Dummett and Massadio Haidara are ruled out with hamstring and knee injuries respectively.

This will be the 15th league meeting between these two clubs, but the first in the English top flight.

This signing promises to give a considerable boost the amount of Premier League experience within the dressing room and is an addition to the squad which provides the team with a solid anchor should they need it.

Ryan has started all five of Brighton's Premier League fixtures this term, while Maenpaa played in the cup.

"This season looks to be one where there will be no nailed on wins for most clubs - and that includes Newcastle United".

"My main responsibility is to be sure that they play with the same intensity and we approach every game as if it was the most important".

Rafael Benitez has warned his players' such profligacy will be punished by the Premier League's top teams.

Ritchie believes it would be unwise for too much to be read into the club's current position of fourth-place in the league and says that survival remains the club's goal. In this case, what I have seen is the performances of the team are fine and we have got three points in the last three games and we have to try to do the same. It could have gone so differently, but it didn't through a lot of hard work from everyone involved.
