Would you bet against Newcastle United now?
Well, would you bet against Newcastle United now?
Despite a long barren run on the road, the Magpies ended it in real style today with a great all round team performance at Watford.
The scoreline may look slender but really the game should have been done and dusted long before the injury time strike from Will Hoskins.
Andy Carroll is on fire at the moment and after setting up the first for Fabricio Coloccini and then heading home a second, his 11th of the season, it was enough to seal the win.
And so as the Newcastle players went different directions after the game with some due on international duty next week.
All that was left to do was take a look at the league table.
With Newcastle EIGHT clear of Nottingham Forest with a game in hand and still to play the tricky Trees at home, automatic promotions should be assured in the final 13 games.
I do say should.....
