Newcastle have a more than decent chance of getting our first win in nine games, since we hammered Aston Villa 1-0 on February 28th at home – but we’ve found road games very difficult this year, and we have lost our last five away games with a cumulative score of 14-0 – hence one reason our goal difference has gone from -6 to -24 this year under John Carver- and why the other teams fighting relegation with us all have a better goal difference – which is always worth an extra point..

Can Newcastle win on Saturday?
Of all the clubs in the Premier League only relegated QPR and Burnley have an inferior goal difference to Newcastle United, such has been our almost total collapse this year since Alan Pardew left.
But for the first time in a long time our readers think we will win this game – and about twice as many think we can win than think we will lose.
A defeat at QPR would be a total disaster and could help us get relegated, so our players must come through on Saturday – there can be no more excuses.
And it would be good if we are safe on Saturday night – and it’s not totally dependent on the final day of the season in our game at home to West Ham.
But after the way this season has gone – it will be left to the last game to decide whether we are relegated – and that will be similar to six years ago when we lost 1-0 at Villa and took the drop.
We really hope we can win this game against an already relegated side – even though it is away from home – and the players have a chance to give back to the fans for a change.
