Newcastle United welcome Norwich City to St James’ Park on Saturday, with the house side looking to avoid being sucked back to the relegation battle.
Norwich are currently bottom of the Premier League, 13 points adrift of Steve Bruce’s side in 14th,
but the Canaries did beat Newcastle handily within the reverse fixture last August.
Newcastle were held to a 2-2 draw on the road by Everton the last match-day. the way of the draw was as sweet as a win for the Magpies.
They were trailing 2-0 even late into the injury time, when Florian Lejeune scored twice within the span of sixty seconds to salvage some extent for his team.
Elsewhere, Norwich were defeated on the road by Tottenham, with a 2-1 scoreline. The loss another time highlighted the struggles of the team faraway from home.
Norwich were winless in 20 of their last 25 overall fixtures. Of the entire five wins during this stretch,
two had are available the FA Cup, and one had come against fellow relegation-battler, Bournemouth.
Norwich’s form faraway from Carrow Road has been a specific cause for concern,
with the club learning just five points and one win on their travels and scoring just six goals from 12 matches.
Farke’s team have picked up five points from their past six games but played well in their most up-to-date away defeat to Tottenham Hotspur.
They will also hope to require confidence from their run to the fifth round of the FA Cup after they secured a 2-1 convert Burnley at the weekend.
