By Joe,


With Shearer on the helm, Newcastle is really making the last ditch to secure their Premiership status for next season. Since their first taste of victory came at home against relegation strugglers Middleborough, the Geordies are hungry for more. Their willingness to play as a team has really come in a good time. This will only pay dividends if they find themselves above the relegation after the next two games left in this season. Many Geordie fans are now happier with the situation and they could guide Shearer’s men to victory against Fulham.

Another 3 points is what Alan Shearer needs to continue their winning stride in the League. There is no doubt that it is another make or break game. Hull City will be facing Bolton at the Reebok stadium so a lot of anxious moments will be flying on the day. Things will be getting more positive if Newcastle is to win the next two games, they will survive because of a better goal difference than Hull City (7 goals to be accurate). Newcastle has their fate in their hands, what they will do is what they will get. Shearer is without Jose Enrique and Joey Barton (suspended). Alan Smith is rated doubtful while Obefemi Martins did not train on Thursday but could still feature in the match against Fulham.

Fulham is chasing for a European spot next year. They have done well under Roy Hodgson and this might be their best placing in their history in the Premier League. If you switch back one year ago, Fulham was in Newcastle’s shoes and managed to get out of the drop zone after winning three games. This year things have changed and now they don’t have to stress over next year’s status. Roy Hodgson has built a formidable team with a solid defense, hard working midfield and on occasion, a striker’s delight in front of goal. This is a solid team in which all the fundamentals of football are applied. This is the key success for Roy Hodgson to build upon. Roy will be without Giles Barnes on the day but he will be delighted to have Andy Johnson and Bobby Zamora back into the squad.

Good news for Newcastle as this game is played in St. James Park. They have improved lately and strange things do happen when pressure is around the corners. Fulham does not have to deal with this and they have only won away once in this season. So do not count on them winning here, but you can count on them playing a solid game. Newcastle will do exactly what they did against Middleborough, make it exciting and the goals will come near the end of the 2nd half. So Newcastle to win will give you mybet is offering at odds 1.90 for a home win. Good luck.
