Brighton & Hove Albion were beaten for the second game running, this time 1-0 at home to Bristol City in the late game this afternoon and Newcastle are now just one point behind the Seagulls with a better goals difference and one game to play.
Two games ago we were 7 points behind Brighton and now we can still go up as Champions.
And the team that could have robbed us of being in first place with a 94th minute equalizer almost two weeks ago at St. James’ Park when we completely dominated them – Leeds United – could only draw 3-3 at home to Norwich City and have therefore failed to make the playoffs – so they are down below for yet another season.

What a cracking weekend it’ll be next week. Hopefully we’ll be on sky. Hopefully we’ll be crowned champions next Sunday #NUFC

Here’s how the top of the table looks with just one game to play after today’s games.
We might actually end up as champions. Brighton have to go to Villa Park and win! Barnsely at home is easier for us! #NUFC
