Sky Sports pundit David Prutton was close to the result on Monday night when he predicted a 2-2 draw against Sheffield Wednesday and a win the next day by Brighton against QPR that would put Brighton top of the Championship.
David was almost exactly right, but it was even worse for Newcastle when we lost 1-0 to Sheffield Wednesday and that was a real shock to the system.
So maybe David is a decent pundit, but he thinks Newcastle will have a reaction and bounce back tomorrow night with a win against Forest.
No that’s more like it.
David Prutton predicts win for Newcastle
Here’s what David has for his Sky Sports prediction:
“I think we will see a reaction. I think Forest have been inconsistent enough for Newcastle to fancy themselves at home even though Sheffield Wednesday went up there and did a job on them.”
“With Newcastle seeing how Brighton are doing and how closely fought it is at the top, this is a game they could, should and will win.”
“Of course, the Magpies need to go back up. If it’s as Champions, then it’s happy days but I think they want the guarantee of just going up so they need to be at the top and keep en eye on who is behind them.”
“After a kick up the backside against Wednesday, they should get back to normal service here.”
David was one of the commentators for the Southampton vs Tottenham game last night over here on NBC Sports that Spurs eventually won 4-1 – and he came across very well.
Dare we say Moussa Sissoko started and even had a decent game for Spurs?
We need David Prutton to be right about tomorrow night’s result.
Howay The Lads!!
