The results in the Premier League this afternoon generally went our way.
Stoke lost 2-1 at home to Everton and West Brom lost again this afternoon – this time 2-1 at Bournemouth.
West Brom have 21 points to play for (7 games), and they are still 12 points behind Newcastle so not much chance they can catch us now – and we must beat them at home on 28th April.
So two of the sides below Newcastle in the league lost their games.
But Crystal Palace had a very good 2-0 win at Huddersfield, who Newcastle play at home in two weeks time.
Newcastle stay in 13th place in the league table on 32 points, but we are now 4 points above the drop zone.
Rafa Benitez – looks happy at the results
Here’s how Newcastle stand after today’s games.
It’s going to be even more important that we can get all 3 points against the Terriers in two weeks time.
In the Championship, Sunderland lost 2-0 at home to Preston and Fulham could only draw 2-2 at home to QPR after being 2-0 up – Mitro didn’t score today.
