Newcastle United Prediction

Despite recording back-to-back wins against Cardiff City 3-0 and even more impressively, a 2-1 win against Premier League leaders, Manchester City, Newcastle still remain in the relegation dogfight towards the bottom of the division as they hold a slender one point ahead of third from bottom club Southampton.

A 1-0 defeat away at Tottenham along with a 1-1 draw at Wolves, albeit a good result, has resulted in Newcastle remaining dangerously close to the bottom three, so the hosts will be desperate to make home advantage count against an almost down-and-out Huddersfield side on Saturday.

The Magpies possess a pretty ordinary home record of 4-1-8 12/18 at St James’ Park so far this season although the hosts will have been boosted by recent wins against the aforementioned Cardiff City and Manchester City.

The forward trio of Rondon (6 goals), Perez and Joselu should ensure the hosts create a few goalscoring chances which they’ll be looking to convert against a poor travelling Huddersfield Town outfit here.

 

Key-Facts – Newcastle United v Huddersfield Town

  • Newcastle United have recorded back-to-back wins at home in the EPL
  • Huddersfield have lost 5 of their last 6 matches away from home
  • Huddersfield have conceded 12 goals in their last 6 away matches

 

Huddersfield Town Prediction

It’s looking increasingly desperate for Huddersfield Town who sit rock bottom of the Premier League as they now find themselves 14 points adrift of Cardiff City and safety ahead of their tough trip to Newcastle United this Saturday.

They still have 12 matches remaining of the season but Huddersfield remain stuck on a total points haul of 11 which is tied with Derby County who recorded the lowest points tally in the history of the Premier League, so The Terriers will definitely want to avoid being part of this dubious record.

However, with just two league wins all season, and having lost their last four matches on the trot with defeats to Manchester City, Everton, Huddersfield Town and Arsenal, Huddersfield’s situation looks very bleak indeed.

The visitors possess a poor away record of 1-3-8 8/26 which includes losing five of their last six matches on the road with losses incurred at Bournemouth, Arsenal, Manchester United, Fulham and Chelsea – the latter being a 5-0 thrashing at Stamford Bridge.

This last six-match period away from home has seen Huddersfield concede a total of 12 goals and score just 2 in reply.

Betting Tips Verdict

As ordinary as Newcastle United have been at St James’ Park so far this season, they should be able to account for a very poor Huddersfield outfit here.
