We must have a great chance to make it 3 wins in a row, for the first time this season, when Newcastle play Reading tomorrow afternoon.
After such a terrible and disappointing season Newcastle United now has the chance of finishing the season on a high. We have two wins on the trot right now, and the mood on Tyneside will be further elevated by another win tomorrow.
If we can keep winning, the Newcastle faithful, bless their hearts, will start to think of next season and just how good we could be then, with four new excellent players coming in. And of course Kevin Keegan is in charge now. 😀
But we are getting ahead of ourselves, because we are still not clear of relegation and first things first. If we can beat Reading tomorrow, then that will surely make relegation fears a thing of the past.
We expect Keegan once again to name an unchanged side for the game tomorrow:
Beye Faye Taylor Enrique
Geremi Barton Butt
Martins Viduka Owen
Subs: Forster Diatta Smith Nâ€™Zogbia Carroll
Apparently Emre is still not fit for tomorrow’s game.
The interesting point with the team is who Kevin includes as the substitutes. At some point he needs to try out Senegal captain Lamine Diatta who has been performing very well in training. So we would expect Diatta to be introduced on the bench, probably in place of 20 year-old Canadian youngster David Edgar.
We also expect Charles N’Zogbia to be back on the bench in place of Damien Duff.
Since Reading are below us in the table and they beat us 2-1 at the Madejski last year, there’s every reason why we should win tomorrow. We expect Kevin to have the team ready to go and to try to put in another good attacking performance for the Newcastle faithful.
With any luck at all, we expect another win and all 3 points, which will finally relieve us of our relegation fears.
What do you think?
