Newcastle United welcome Leeds to St James’ Park on Tuesday night with Steve Bruce seeking a result to help ease the huge pressure mounting on his shoulders.

Only Harry Kane has attempted more shots than Patrick Bamford this season (65) and while he has drawn a blank in his last three games, tonight could present a chance to fill his boots. A hat-trick on Tyneside tonight is priced at 22/1.

Bamford and Callum Wilson have netted 10 and eight goals respectively for their sides this season – both men to get on the score sheet tonight is currently priced at 6/1 with Sky Bet.

That would call for Newcastle to end a dreadful run of form in goal, however. The Magpies have scored just one goal in their last eight games. In their last three games, they have managed an average of just nine touches in the opposition box per match and 1.6 shots on target per match.

Leeds are priced at 2/1 to pick up a clean sheet at St James’ Park tonight while an away win at 4/5 will be mighty tempting on the basis of what we have seen from Newcastle as of late.

Leeds eased to a 5-2 win in the reverse fixture at Elland Road in December, hitting 25 shots on goal that night. If you fancy a similar outcome tonight, you might what to consider Leeds to win, over 2.5 goals and Leeds to have 14 or more shots on goal at 11/4.
