Newcastle have the potential of two straight FA Cup matches at St James Park. We first have to take care of some unfinished business and beat Rochdale in the third round replay, which is scheduled for next Tuesday evening.
This is again a generous draw for Steve Bruce and the Magpies if we can get past Rochdale. Oxford United are currently fourth in League One and defeated Hartlepool 4-1 on Saturday to advance.
Steve Bruce wants to make a run at the FA Cup. However, things got off to a rocky start on Saturday when we only managed a draw. However, Newcastle have been given an excellent opportunity to get beyond the fourth round for the first time in the Ashley era.
