Newcastle Still Have It All To Do As Swansea Win

It was nice being out of the relegation zone for a couple of days, but a good 1-0 win by Swansea at home tonight to Watford means the Swans move ahead of us in the league table by one point.

And it was in front of their new manager Francesco Guidolin watching from the stands that Swansea got a crucial win with the winning goal coming in the first half from an Ashley William´s header.

Guidolin is ready to take over the team for Sunday´s game at Everton, with Alan Curtis becoming the assistant manager.

Ashley Williams – scored only goal in game tonight

Newcastle target Bafe Gomis almost added a second late in the game, but he hit the post in stoppage time.

Newcastle hadn´t won in the last six games before we beat West Ham 2-1 last Saturday and Swansea hadn´t won in their last four games and had only one win in the last 12 games so this was a huge win for Swansea.

Newcastle play Watford on Saturday and it´s another big game for us – and we really have to start picking up wins to move out of the relegation zone for good.

It could well take 40 points to avoid the drop this season.

Maybe this Swansea win will help us sign Andros Townsend this week?
