In the last two games Newcastle have lost 5 points on both Brighton and Huddersfield and if the Terriers win their game in hand they will be only 3 points behind Newcastle.
So with the shocking 3-1 defeat to Fulham laden with errors from Newcastle yesterday we will have to fight for an automatic promotion spot – and nothing is certain.
We have to hope our players aren’t choking this late in the season.
In the last two home games Newcastle have one point and have conceded 5 goals and our home form is our Achilles heel.

Horror show from Newcastle
Newcastle yesterday made far too many mistakes and we looked a poor side.
If we don’t get promoted this season it will be a disaster worse than being relegated last season.
Here’s some reaction from the Newcastle fans.

#NUFC what superb display in how to look rubbish at St James Park. Are we really ready for the premier league? Feel sorry for the fans

how can #nufc fans turn up in the dozens every week regardless of results, no trophy for 50 years, utter shit for most & be called plastic?

People are saying this was our worst home game of the season so far, what about the Wolves game (they are in the relegation battle)? #nufc
