Another home game, another win. It seems the Newcastle United promotion charge is picking up pace at the right time. With our last 2 home games bearing the gift of 9 goals scored, as fans we could be forgiven for wanting more of the same. Goals this season have been a rare treat, often with the boys in black & white doing just enough. Performance wise it was a case of just enough, but result wise it was another 3 goals, another clean sheet and another 3 points.

With the surprise news that Wayne Routledge was to miss today’s game with a calf injury, it meant a recall to the team for club vice-captain Alan Smith with Danny Guthrie move out to the right wing to accomodate. That left both sides lining up as follows:

Newcastle United: Harper, Simpson, Coloccini, Williamson, Van Aanholt, Gutierrez, Smith (c), Nolan, Guthrie, Carroll, Lovenkrands.
