Our Newcastle fans here in the Transfer Tavern are keen to their side really kick on now as we head towards the end of the season.
The final interruption of the year is now out of the way as we wave goodbye to the international break and now fully focus on the run-ins up and down the leagues.
Certainly, as always, the one in the Championship is going to be a hugely competitive affair with the Magpies currently leading the way but just a point ahead of Brighton.
It’s been a title tussle that has rumbled on for the whole of the season and will surely go all the way to the wire given the nature of the division they are in.
Newcastle will need to improve their home form to ensure they do go up, though, and that is something Rafa Benitez has referred to in his press-conference – as per the club’s official Twitter account:
RB: “We have some games to play at home, and we will try to improve our record.” #NUFC

Certainly, then, the Magpies will be in the top flight if they can get things right at St. James’ Park as their away form has been simply brilliant this season.
Thoughts, Newcastle fans? Let us know below!
