It just shows what one game can do.
For the home game on Saturday against Bristol City, who has lost 10 of their previous 13 league games, we had 90% think we would win the game, 6% think we would draw (they were right) and 5% think we would lose the game.
For our next game at table-topping Brighton, it’s about even who think we will lose and who think we will win.
It’s the lowest percentage who think we will win for any game in the league this season.

Newcastle won the game 2-0
On Saturday we pointed out that if we didn’t win it would be a huge shock – and it certainly was – I still haven’t recovered.
So it’s only right to point out that if we win tonight it will be a surprise if not a huge shock.
Maybe the lads can do it and it’s exactly what we need to get us back on track and on top of the league.
But it will be very tough against an in-form Seagulls side.
What do you think?
