Newcastle were in the game last Sunday at home to Tottenham until Jonjo Shelvey was sent off just three minutes into the second half and we ended up losing that game 2-0.
We don’t know what would have happened if Shelvey had behaved himself but we’re pretty sure we would have taken at least a point out of that game.
But we didn’t because of Jonjo’s moment of madness.
Tomorrow we are at fellow promotion side Huddersfield who did really well last Saturday at Crystal Palace winning 3-0.
They will be full of confidence, but in our poll, 80% of our voters think we will take something out of the game tomorrow at John Smith’s Stadium.
57% believe we can win the game and only one in five believe we will lose our second game in a row.
That would equal last season’s start when we lost at Fulham and then at home to Huddersfield Town, who were the surprise team in the Championship under their young manager David Wagner.

We are hoping that Newcastle can get back to their winning ways of last season and this is the team we think Rafa will start tomorrow afternoon in the game that kicks off at 1:30 pm.

Given we have Florian Lejeune and Paul Dummett injured, and Jonjo Shelvey suspended that looks like quite a strong team.
And the key man tomorrow could be Spanish midfielder Mikel Merino who will be making his first start and second appearance for the Magpies; we expect him to come in for Shelvey.
Let’s hope he and the rest of the lads do very well tomorrow, and maybe we can get our first win – which most of our fans are expecting.
