Cardiff City, Brighton and Crystal Palace all lost their games last night, and that was good news for Newcastle.
But we now have to help ourselves against Crystal Palace on Saturday.
We need to get our 10th win of the season and the 6th successive home win since we were beaten 2-0 by the Red Devils back on 2nd January.
It’s a great opportunity for Newcastle, and we will have Fabian Schar available with only Sean Longstaff and perhaps Isaac Hayden not available for the game.
Roy Hodgson – Crystal Palace manager
Crystal Palace have a decent side this season and a capable manager in Roy Hodgson so it will not be easy – by any means.
Rafa will hold his press conference for the game tomorrow afternoon and he will know this is a great opportunity to make Newcastle safe this season.
