All 3 Points At Hull What Newcastle Now Need

When Newcastle beat Aston Villa on Sunday, with a last minute goal from Loic Remy, it was Newcastle’s first double of the season, after we had beaten Villa 2-1 at Villa Park in September, with goals from Ben Arfa and Gouffran.

Loic Remy – after scoring on Sunday very late in the game

It was a very good win on Sunday, because Villa have picked up most of their points on the road this season, 17 of their 28 points in fact, and it put Newcastle on 40 points, presumably now safe from relegation.

And of course it was just a huge win for the team, after just one win in the previous nine games, and Alan Pardew was certainly pleased:

“It was a key moment.” “I am hoping that trend continues – like it did after the first away win.”

“Villa have always been fortunate for me as a manager. Sometimes you have those moments.” “The last 15 minutes the crowd got involved.

“And we got ourselves in a position to win the game – and then we won it.”

Newcastle now visit Hull City on Saturday, and we need to make up for that pathetic 3-2 defeat at St. James’ Park, which incidentally was the game following the win at Villa Park.

Newcastle are still finding it difficult to score goals, but Loic Remy did have a few chances that he missed on Sunday, and he said he would look at those – the Frenchman is obviously hungry for goals – which is good for Newcastle and good for him, as he will have a number of top clubs after him in the summer.

But Loic had also missed the last three games, and he should be a lot sharper on Saturday, and we are looking forward to seeing Loic and Luuk de Jong up front together.

In those last 20 minutes or so on Sunday, they looked threatening and seemed to work well together.

A win is just what the doctor ordered on Saturday – and we could even get all 3 points.

And as usual, the lads will have terrific support with all 2500 tickets for the game being snapped up by the traveling Newcastle fans.

    Our away record is pretty good this season – I’m hoping we can get a result here. I’m not sure if Pardew will play 2 up top in an away match but might go for his tried and trusted away formation of 4 5 1

    Hull are far more spectacular away from home. They’ve only won 2 of thei last 8 league games there (I think).
    We can definitely beat them now we ‘re back to full strength.
