It’s heading towards crunch time for Newcastle and we will know by 5:00 pm on Saturday afternoon how things have gone because all five clubs above Burnley and QPR (who look to be relegated unless they win their last 3 games) will have completed their games.
Fabricio Coloccini – has stepped up to the plate
Here’s the fixture list for Saturday with the kickoff times.
Everton vs Sunderland 12:45 pm
Aston Villa vs West Ham 3:00 pm
Hull vs Burnley 3:00 pm
Leicester vs Southampton 3:00 pm
Newcastle vs West Brom 3:00 pm
That’s a great chance for Hull City to get 3 points against Burnley at home on Saturday and unless we can beat West Brom on saturday they would go above us in the league table.
That’s a tough game for Leicester but Sunderland beat the Saints at home last weekend, and the Foxes could get their sixth win in seven games on Saturday, for an unbelievable recovery.
Just think if Leicester hadn’t done so well in the last six games we may have been safe by now – but Leicester deserve all the credit – they’ve been great and so have their fans and former Newcastle coach Nigel Pearson.
Here’s the standings in the league today.
And it helped that Fab Coloccini has sent an open letter to Newcastle fans – so it looks the captain has finally stepped up to the plate.
On Saturday if Sunderland win and Hull and Leicester at least draw – and we don’t win – then Newcastle will be in 3rd bottom place.
What do you think?
