Why were Newcastle relegated last season? Financial instability didn‘t help, although three separate managers during the course of the campaign hardly helped the talented squad at St James‘ Park. This time around, they have continuity under Chris Hughton and look set to return to the Premier League after a strong start to the campaign. Seven wins out of nine at St James‘ Park have helped them to the top of the Championship, with the team having quality players in Kevin Nolan, Steven Taylor and Marlon Harewood. The latter has come in for criticism, although he bagged a midweek brace against Swansea.
Watford are doing reasonably well, considering that finances are tight at Vicarage Road. It looked like it could be a season of struggle under new manager Malky Mackay, although the Hornets currently reside in the top half in the table thanks to decent form home and away. However, Saturday‘s 3-0 defeat at Crystal Palace suggests that they might struggle to get anything from their trip to Tyneside, especially with the Magpies soaring at the moment. Best odds for the Newcastle win is 1.61 with canbet.
