Newcastle United v Stoke City: Can the Geordies go level on points with the Potters?


Bookmark and Share

Both Newcastle United and Stoke City lost 1-0 in the league last weekend but Alan Pardew will be hoping home advantage will help get his Mags back to winning ways this afternoon when the two sides meet at St James' Park.

The Geordies lost to Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium while Stoke City went down 1-0 at home to West Ham United, their sixth defeat from 10. As if things weren't hard enough for the Potters, they have only managed one league win away from the Britannia all season. Fortunately Newcastle have lost six of their 14 home games during this campaign. Unfortunately for Stoke though, Newcastle have also won seven, the most outside of the top eight.

Stoke City emerged victorious when these two sides met in November, courtesy of two late goals from Walters and Jerome, but they have only recorded one win at St James' in the past 37 years.

Newcastle will start the game as favourites and will go level on points with Stoke with a victory, but the Potters should never be overlooked.
