Bournemouth vs Newcastle match preview
It’s an important night for 18th place Bournemouth. The relegation-threatened Cherries are without their top scorer, Callum Wilson. They’ll need to find a way to pick up some points though, on a night where rivals West Ham – also on 27 points – find themselves in a tough game against Chelsea.
West Ham are unlikely to get a result on current form, so this game is a real chance for Bournemouth to move out of the relegation places. Newcastle have shown glimmers of hope under Steve Bruce – and are pretty much safe from relegation themselves – but remain inconsistent.
The Magpies were knocked out of the FA Cup by Man City this week and are just a point away from the 40-point mark – traditionally seen as a near-guarantee of safety from relegation. Seemingly then, Newcastle don’t have too much to play for, but they’ll want to ensure their security in the division. They’re unbeaten in four league fixtures and Bournemouth are without a win in their last four outings against Newcastle.
The odds are against Bournemouth then, but it’s a fixture that may mean more to them than it does to the opposition. Tune in on Sky Pick for all the action.
