Newcastle vs Wolves: Predictions
Newcastle face arguably their biggest game of the season this weekend, with just three points currently separating them from Fulham in 18th. Scott Parker’s side have been on an upward trajectory in recent weeks and have blown this relegation battle wide open.
Back-to-back defeats for Steve Bruce has kept the Magpies dangling precariously above the drop zone and if further points full by the wayside on Saturday, as well as Fulham nicking a result against a Wilfried Zaha-less Crystal Palace, then they could finish the weekend in the bottom three.
Their most recent defeats came away to Man Utd and Chelsea, so Bruce will certainly welcome a home tie against a non ‘Big Six’ opponent, but Wolves have been in a bit of form of late and are still looking over their shoulder themselves, so will not be resting on their laurels when they head to St. James’ Park.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side could conceivably climb into the top half of the table with a win, but defeat in the North East would reduce the gap to just five points between themselves and Newcastle. However, the club are on a four-game unbeaten streak at present, including three wins in that time.
