A win on Saturday at St. James’ Park against Huddersfield Town would be only the second time this season we have managed to win two league games in a row.
It would also be three successive home wins after we once had the worst home record in the Premier League.
It’s another massive game against a relegation rival – much like our last game against Southampton at home that we ended up winning fairly easily by a 3-0 scoreline.

Huddersfield beat us 2-1 the last time they were at St. James’ Park in August of 2016; that was our second Championship league game after we had lost the first one 1-0 at Fulham.
The Terriers also beat us 1-0 at John Smith’s Stadium last August so it will not be an easy game.
But it’s the most important league game we will have played this season.
A win is what we need.
