Premier League: Newcastle United v West Brom match preview
A look ahead to the fixture at St James' Park
Friday 29 November 2013
Newcastle will be looking to record their fourth straight win on Saturday against a West Brom side who let a two goal lead slip to draw with Midlands rivals Aston Villa on Monday evening.
A win on Saturday would lift Alan Pardew’s side into the Champions League places if results go their way.
Loic Remy will once again be the danger man for the Magpies. The French international has scored eight goals in ten Premier League games.
Steve Clarke’s West Brom side have only won once in their last six games and will be looking to get back to winning ways this weekend.
Shane Long scored two fantastic goals inside 11 minutes on Monday night, and the Baggies will need the Irishman to put in a similar performance if they are to get the better of their opponents.
