Newcastle News and Form

It is a three-match winless streak of form that Newcastle have put together at the moment (D2 L1). It was a poor 0-0 home draw against Brighton that they managed last weekend. They have gone W1 L2 on the road this season, the defeats for Steve Bruce’s men happening against Norwich and Liverpool. They were both 3-1 defeats as well. With just the four goals this season Newcastle are the joint-lowest scoring team in the top flight. They have failed to score in three of their six games.

Newcastle have been trailing at the break in two of their three games on the road this season. They have conceded the opening goal in half of their league fixtures for this campaign. Newcastle have taken three wins only in their last fourteen top-flight road games. They have alternated between a win and a defeat in their last four on the road. Their last two away wins, at Fulham and Spurs last season, were both earned with a clean sheet. Given the circumstances, they may be happy with a point out of this.
