In a relegation six-pointer, Newcastle United will plays hosts to Huddersfield Town at St James’ Park on Saturday.
In their last league game, the Magpies claimed a crucial 3-0 home win over Southampton, and they would sense a real opportunity of claiming another three points on Saturday.
The Magpies are 13th in the table with 32 points, and three points on Saturday will be a huge step towards securing their survival.
Despite their inconsistent form, Newcastle have been solid at home in the recent weeks. They are undefeated in their last five league games at St James, and this run also consists a 1-0 win over Manchester United.
The Terriers come into this game on the back of a disappointing 2-0 home defeat to Crystal Palace. Huddersfield are without a win in their last three league games, and it appears that their mini-resurgence is over.
The visitors are placed 15th in the table with 31 points. This point-total puts them only three points clear of the bottom-three, and if they fail to turn around their form soon, they could find themselves in serious trouble.
Back in August, Huddersfield managed a 1-0 win over Newcastle at the John Smith Stadium.
