Newcastle fans on Twitter eyeing survival after Watford win

If you were to speak to Newcastle fans before their game against Watford yesterday, the chances are they’d have told you that relegation was inevitable. However, they then pulled off a huge smash and grab, beating Javi Gracia’s Watford 1-0, a result that has seen them climb out of the drop zone.

Newcastle fans everywhere are still shocked that they managed to beat Watford, especially seeing as the Hornets have been in good form this season early on. However, it was a day where Watford’s finishing let them down, even though they had more shots, corners, possession and passes on the day, their one shot on target wasn’t enough as an Ayoze Perez strike gave The Magpies their long-awaited win.

The three points has seen them rise to 17th, and whilst it was all doom and gloom before, the fact that they’ve now won a game and have three times below them has opened the supporters eyes to the dross that is around them. The likes of Huddersfield, Cardiff and Fulham have been ridiculously poor and for The Geordies to finish above that trio shouldn’t be too big of an ask if they can nick results like they did yesterday.

The Magpies will have faith of staying up if they can bag some more results like today, although it will be a long road ahead if they are to do it.
