NUFC v Leeds Thoughts

NUFC v Leeds Thoughts

Come 9:40pm tonight, it could become very nervy or see the first of the celebration drinks be ready to serve on ice.

Best case scenario today is a win for Newcastle and defeats for both Brighton and Huddersfield as unlikely as that sounds. If that did happen we'd be a point clear at the top and 13 over the play off places with only 15 points available for Huddersfield to get.

Mathematically then only needing a win or any sort of point drop for them to gain promotion.

Worst case scenario is obviously a defeat and wins for both rival sides. This scenario would see us 5 points off top and 7 ahead of Huddersfield. Potentially 4 if they won their game in hand with 4 games to play.

As Rafa Benitez says though, as long as we concentrate on ourselves then we should be fine. Over to the team now to finish the job.

My predicted XI

Yedlin, Hanley, Lascelles, Dummett
Ritchie, Hayden, Shelvey, Atsu
