Newcastle United face the risk of dropping into the relegation zone should they fail to collect all three points when they play Stoke City on Saturday. Watch all the live premiership action here on Live Sport Network.
Newcastle have had some good results under interim boss Joe Kinnear, but the problem is the side have been unable to rise above the bottom half of the table. In last week's Premier League match, the Magpies drew 0-0 against Middlesbrough at The Riverside.
The draw was enough to take Newcastle above Sunderland to the 17th spot on the league table. However the difference between the bottom 10 teams is just six points meaning every match is a potential six-pointer from now on. Joe Kinnear meanwhile was confirmed as Newcastle manager until the end of the season, but it is doubtful if he will be able to buy any new players in the January transfer window.
Stoke City will be fairly satisfied with their season so far even though they crashed out of the Carling Cup during the midweek with a 0-1 loss to Championship side Derby County. In the Premiership, the Potters are placed 14th with 18 points from 15 games played thus far. Although their season has not been as impressive as fellow promoted team Hull City, manager Tony Pulis will be satisfied with their position.
Last week they drew 1-1 against Hull City at home. Marlon King's first-half strike had given the visitors the lead at Britannia Stadium, where the conditions were very foggy and visibility was low. Hull keeper Boaz Myhill was then adjudged to have tripped striker Ricardo Fuller, who converted the resulting penalty giving the home side one point from the encounter.
Stoke will need to keep churning out the results and boss Pulis will see the Newcastle game as an opportunity to snatch all three points.
