Newcastle vs Fulham
Newcastle have hit a rather rich vein of form at home recently, not losing in their last 5 matches and scoring 9 in their past 3 home Premiership games. The Magpies, despite losing both games, also put in solid performances against Wigan and Manchester City away from home.
With European interests either side of this match the expectation might be that manager Alan Pardew would focus on the big Quarter Final matches against Benfica, leaving this match against Fulham as a sideshow - that is wrong. Newcastle need a win in this game as they are in danger of getting sucked right in to this relegation battle, as it stands the Magpies are only 3 points of the drop zone.
Fulham's generous defence has conceded 2 or more goals on 9 occasions in away Premiership matches this season and at St. James' Park it would seem that number will change to 10. The Geordie faithful know their team need points, quickly, and I feel they'll cheer their lads on to get that win - at the very least they should make a spirited attempt and I think the goals will come.
Ho'way the lads!
