More Joy For Newcastle – Could Still Go Up As Champions


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.
