It would be very good if we can win out next two games – tomorrow night in the replay against Birmingham in the 3rd round of the FA Cup and then on Saturday against Rotherham United in the Championship.
That will make it three wins in a row and maybe we can then go on a good winning run.
But the problem we have is we lost three more players to injury on Saturday although only Vurnon Anita seems badly injured and his ankle injury could keep him out about six weeks according to Rafa Benitez today.
Rafa has only 16 fit first team players to choose from for tomorrow night.
The manager will want to rotate his players and he has had four U23 players training with the squad this week and Rafa has said they could even play in the game tomorrow night.
He will want to rest some players so they are fresh for the game against Rotherham United on Saturday.
Though they are bottom of the league, we know that absolutely nothing is certain in the Championship and we will need to play well on Saturday to win that game.
The good news is we hope to see Jonjo Shelvey playing again after his five game suspension, although he is unlikely to play the whole game.
Here is a possible starting eleven for tomorrow night in a game that must have a result, so there will overtime and penalties if necessary, but let’s hope that is not necessary.

That’s six changes to the side that started on Saturday at Brentford.
If Jesus Gamez is fit he could start the game at right back tomorrow night.
What team would you start tomorrow night?
