If Newcastle can beat QPR next Saturday and Hull don’t beat Spurs away we will be safe – so there’s a chance for Newcastle if we can keep picking up points in our last two games.
And today’s result – although not a win – will be massive because it will give our lads a lot of confidence – which has been on the decline for the last eight games.

And next week at QPR hopefully, we’ll have a good back four with Colo and Dummett in the center – and Cisse, Aarons and even Siem de Jong could be brought on during the second half.
In fact we dropped further down the table today as Sunderland, Leicester and Aston Villa all won their games for the second week running.
So it looks like it’s between Newcastle and Hull who go down – and Hull surprisingly lost 1-0 at home to Burnley, which is a big defeat for Hull given they have to play at Tottenham and at home to Manchester United in their last two games.
But you just never know with these final games of the season, and Newcastle probably need one win in our last two games – and that should save us.
We were convinced we would lose today – but it was a boost that Paul Dummett played and another boost that young wonder-kid Perez scored again for us.
Hey, if we do avoid relegation this season then this lad’s goals have saved us and he’s be a hero.
Let’s get right behind the lads in the last two games, and try very hard to save our Premier League status, even though we know we’ve screwed a lot of times this year.
If we can beat QPR next week and Hull don’t win at Tottenham – we are safe – but I think I already said that.
