Sundayâ€™s game at Tottenham will be a tough test for Newcastle, after finally getting the first win in 14 games last Saturday against Fulham.
Kevin Keegan – likely will stick with the same team for Sunday
But Sundayâ€™s game will be a good challenge for Newcastle, and could be their second double of the season in a row, if they are able to be victorious.
We wouldnâ€™t expect Kevin to change the team from the last two games, as the lads have performed really well and should have that extra confidence coming from the Fulham win.
But Tottenham are a different and much stronger side under Juande Ramos, and will be hard to beat at White Hart Lane. Spurs have lots of spirit these days as they proved when they repeatedly came back against Chelsea last week, in their 4-4 draw, and right at the death striker Berbatov had a good chance to get all 3 points but missed.
We expect the following side to be fielded by Kevin for Sundayâ€™s game, which has a 3:00PM kick off.
Beye Faye Taylor Enrique
Geremi Barton Butt
Martins Viduka Owen
Subs: Forster Diatta Smith Nâ€™Zogbia Carroll
With Cacapaâ€™s season ending injury it will open the door to allowing Senegal captain Diatta on the subs bench, and eventually getting a game so we can see what Lamine can do for us.
But Kevin will want to keep the same team which has done do well in the last two games and will be hopefully going all out for the win on Sunday.
A win at White Hart Lane will finally eliminate the relegation worries at the club, and we can then look forward to a summer spree of signings and a much better season next season. It would be difficult to have a season quite as bad as this one.
How do you think we’ll do on Sunday and should we stick with the same team?
Let us know – comments welcome.
