Ian Holloway predicts all of the Championship games for Sky Sports and he seems top be a keen Newcastle supporter this season ever since he did his first ever interview for Sky Sports with Rafa just before out first game at Fulham – which we lost.
It must have been Ian’s fault.
After beating Preston 6-0 on Tuesday night – admittedly they had 10 men for almost 75% of the game – we need to get all 3 points at Deepdale on Saturday afternoon.
That will maintain our promotion push – which is the main priority this season – getting back to the Premier League.
Ian thinks Newcastle will get a win at Deepdale – that would be our sixth road win of the season.
Here’s what Ian said about the game on Saturday:
“It’s deja vu!”
“I hope it doesn’t go the same way for Preston like the 6-0 defeat it midweek and it will be a totally different situation.”
“Preston are really good at home but Newcastle are looking like the real deal at the minute.”
Ollie Predicts: 2-1 win for Newcastle
Although it’s down from recent games, there are still 79% of fans who think Newcastle we will win this game – they agree with Ian.
As a reminder, here’s the placings at the top of the Championship table.
