EPL: BHAFC vs Newcastle

This Sunday, Newcastle welcomes Graham Potter's Gulls to the Sport Direct Arena but sadly the stadium is locked with no fans.

In addition, the lack of goals in those matches is quite often when only a total of 4 goals are scored between them combined.

Newcastle United are hoping to win again after a 1-0 EFL Cup win over Blackburn Rovers in the lower division. In that match, Newcastle United held the ball 36% and had 5 shots, including 2 hits, the only player to score for Newcastle United was Ryan Fraser (35 ').

Fabian Schär (Shoulder Injury), Martin Dubravka (Heel Injury) and Dwight Gayle (Anterior Cross Ligament Injury) are not present for Newcastle manager Steve Bruce.

The first match was assessed as suspicious, the second being 50/50 for Sunday encounter with birds.
