Newcastle lost on Monday night and even though we had won our last four games that loss was still hard to take.
That’s especially true when the game was so close and we could (should?) have taken something out of it.
But that’s over now, and we move on.
Newcastle must have an excellent chance to get our sixth win in nine games when West Brom visit St. James’ Park on Saturday afternoon.
Islan Slimani – could start again on Saturday
West Brom are starting to fight and have come into some good form recently even though they are more than likely to be relegated and are currently in 20th place with 25 points and only three games to play.
Theoretically, they can go one point above Swansea and survive if they win their last three games and Swansea lose all of their last four games.
But if West Brom don’t win on Saturday, they will be relegated.
Newcastle must play better than we did last Monday night otherwise there could be an unwanted surprise on Saturday.
Here’s how things stand for Newcastle in the league table.
