St. James' Park
West Bromwich Albion FC
Newcastle entertain West Brom on Sunday in a clash of promoted sides who have already ensured their Premier League survival. Despite mid-term decisions to dispense with promotion-winning managers, last season's Championship top two finish the Premier League campaign safely in mid-table, split by a single point. Depending on results elsewhere, a top-10 finish is possible for either side, giving both teams a real incentive. Newcastle have rather relished entertaining teams from the West Midlands this season - they're chasing a perfect 12-point return from home games against teams from the region. Aston Villa (6-0), Wolves (4-1) and Birmingham (2-1) have already been beaten on Tyneside in the Premier League, which actually paints a rather misleading picture of Newcastle's wider home form - just six home wins in total from 18 matches, only one more than already-relegated West Ham. Roy Hodgson has already taken Albion to wins at Birmingham and Sunderland, adding to the impressive early-season Roberto di Matteo successes at Arsenal and Everton. The Baggies' haul of four away Premier League wins is only one behind the freshly-crowned champions Manchester United's tally! Survival was both clubs' minimum requirement this season, and with that achieved with plenty to spare, both teams can hopefully relax and serve up an exciting final game for us on Sunday.
