Newcastle play two of our last three games at home – against Crystal Palace on Saturday and Tottenham on the final day of the season – May 15th.
And Rafa Benitez is again hoping that Newcastle fans can help the side get two home wins, which could be vital for our survival.
Alan Pardew will bring his FA Cup finalists to St. James’ Park on Saturday and it is crucial we pick up all 3 points against a side who have struggled this year in the league.
Rafa Benitez waves to fans after 2-2 draw at Liverpool
This is what Rafa has said about the run-in and what the fans can do:
“Every game for us now is massive so we know we have to perform.” “We play at home and the fans are crucial for us.”
“We will see if they can help, they can help us get the first goal.”
“When you are at the bottom of the table, and you can still see the spirit and fight, you have to be pleased with the players.”
“And the fans, because it’s difficult for them.” “They are still pushing and helping the team.”
“The character of the team has been a big step for us.” “We can keep believing and keep fighting.”
Newcastle are still favorites to go down but it looks like three wins – the two at home and the away game at already relegated Aston Villa could still we out salvation.
And certainly our fans will be doing all they can to help the side get those vital wins.
