It was a bad day at the office for Newcastle United today at Hillsborough and let’s hope we can bounce back in terms of a very good performance on Good Friday against Leeds, because this performance against Sheffield Wednesday simply wasn’t good enough.
If we can get Ciaran Clark and Isaac Hayden back that would be good and it’s possible given we have six days before the next games.
Even though this was an unwanted display and result today we still moved closer to promotion – 3 points closer because Huddersfield lost at Nottingham Forest.
Rafa Benitez – was disappointed with display today
Here’s how things stand at the top of the Championship after today’s game.
Everything there looks pretty good if we were at the top of the league so that has to be the goal – somehow we have to try to take maximum points from our final five games.
If we can gain just 2 points on Brighton we should go top because of our better goal difference.
So it was a bad day for Newcastle but we need to buck up and put things right with a good win next Friday.
