Here Are The 6 Games Coming Up For Newcastle In 21 Days

7:45 am, Sunday, October 9th, 2016 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 3 Comments

In the last round of game between International breaks, starting on 10th September at Derby County, we had 7 games to play in 21 days including one EFL Cup tie.

We won four games of the six in the league and drew one for 13 points and we beat Wolves at home in the 3rd round of the EFL Cup.

Here’s how those games went.

Sat 10	17:30	A   Derby County  2-0 W	
Tue 13	19:45	A   QPR		  6-0 W		
Sat 17	15:00	H   Wolves	  0-2 L	
Tue 20	19:45	H   Wolves	  2-0 W	- EFL Cup 3rd round
Sat 24	17:30	A   Aston Villa	  1-1 D	
Wed 28	19:45	H   Norwich City  4-3 W	
Sat 01	15:00	A   Rotherham	  1-0 W

Things get a little easier when we start up again next Saturday – 15th October – with a home game against Brentford and we have (only) 6 games to play in 21 days.

This is our upcoming schedule before the next International break.

Sat 15	15:00	H   Brentford				
Tue 18	19:45	A   Barnsley				
Sat 22	15:00	H   Ipswich Town				
Sat 29	15:00	A   Preston				
Tue 01  19:45   H   Preston - EFL Cup 4th round
Sat 05	15:00	H   Cardiff City

The best outcome of course is for us to get five wins in the league and somehow get through to the 5th round of the EFL Cup.

Let us know how you think we will do in the five upcoming league games.

    Looks a better line up than the last. I was there when we played Barnsley last, saw six goals ended a draw though hope we get all six ourselves this time.

    Stay safe pal and enjoy your leave when you come home.
