Latest Newcastle v QPR live streaming schedule, odds and match preview from the Premier League clash from St James Park.
In-form Newcastle United will go in search of their 6th consecutive win when they take on improving QPR at St. James’ Park on Saturday.
The Magpies have climbed to eight in the table, just two points off fourth place West Ham, on the back of their recent run.
Super Saturday Offer:
The club have failed to concede a goal in each of their last their games, a run of fixtures that included away games at WBA and Manchester City (Capital One) not to mention a clash with Liverpool.
The results have eased the pressure on Alan Pardew, a situation that pleases rival boss Harry Redknapp.
While Redknapp is glad that Pardew’s future appears solid for now, the former Spurs boss is determined to put over his fellow Englishman this weekend.
“Newcastle is one of the great clubs in English football – 50,000 Geordies every week with their black and white stripes on, they love their club,” said the former West Ham manager.
“I am pleased for Alan but hopefully we can go up there and get a good result this weekend.”
QPR have picked up four points from their last three games, the return all the more impressive when you consider that Manchester City and Chelsea were two of the opponents. The Hoops have struggled this season however a recent 2-0 win over Aston Villa, coupled with the 2-2 at City has raised spirits in the camp.
Redknapp will be without midfielder Adel Taarabt with the player suffering from a groin strain while Newcastle have a number of worries with Fabricio Coloccini (calf), Rolando Aarons (hamstring) and Cheick Tiote (calf/shin) all out and Steven Taylor (knee) a doubt.
Long term absentees Davide Santon, Siem de Jong, Gabriel Obertan (thigh) and Mehdi Abeid (broken toe) are still unavailable.
Newcastle have a good record against their London rivals, winning 6 of their last 8 meetings. Their last defeat came in 1995 when they lost 3-0. Don’t expect that level of goals on Saturday however as each of Newcastle’s last four wins has been by a one goal margin.
