Salomon Rondon scoring
Salomon Rondon: Back in the goals against Bournemouth.
Newcastle continue to go through difficult times off the pitch and for much of this season it has been a similar scenario on the field. They have been fighting it out at the bottom of the table and until recently were one of the favourites with the bookies to face the drop – something that must be avoided, considering the size of the club.

However, two victories in the club’s last two games, the first two of the season have lifted spirits enormously. Seeing previously goal-shy striker, Salomon Rondon, finally coming into form with a brace against Bournemouth was especially uplifting.

A number of bookmakers, including William Hill, are offering some great bonuses and incentives to punters to bet with them. We’ve spoken with a number of NUFC fans who have used the William Hill bonus to back against the Geordies getting relegated – you’ll find it on the Sportytrader site if you want to follow suit and use a great offer to back the Magpies Premier League status.

Newcastle have now pushed themselves to 14th in the table, but they are still just one point off the relegation places, which shows how close it is at the bottom at present. The likes of Fulham, Cardiff and Huddersfield continue to struggle, which is why they remain the favourites to face the drop.

Newcastle went through a difficult two months in September and October as they faced many of the top sides in the league. This included defeats to Manchester City, Arsenal and Manchester United. On each occasion, Newcastle were very competitive only being beaten by one goal. This is no mean feat looking at the results of Arsenal and of course Manchester City who continue to post very impressive results.

Following this difficult period, Newcastle then faced off against Southampton, who themselves were battling it out around the bottom. The game finished 0-0, which was a good result for Newcastle, considering they failed to post a shot on target. Following this, they welcomed an in-form Watford side, who have surprised many this season. This was Newcastle’s first victory of the season and one that could be massive come the end of the premier league season. The game finished 1-0, in what was a very tight affair with Perez, getting the winner on 65 minutes.

The good form continued as Newcastle had another home fixture as they faced off against Bournemouth at St James’ Park. This was a game in which Bournemouth controlled with much of the possession, without creating a vast amount of chances. Newcastle were clinical, as Rondon put them 2-0 up on 39 minutes following two early goals. Newcastle secured the three points with a 2-1 victory, meaning they are now one of the inform sides in the bottom half of the table. Can this run continue?

Newcastle now enter a period of fixtures on the run-up to Christmas, in which they will feel they can pick up plenty of points. This could be the period that defines their season and could leave many Newcastle fans happy moving into 2019.
