Leeds face Newcastle tonight and after last Saturday's wonderful display, the lads will be hoping to carry the momentum against the leagues high fliers at a sold out St James’s Park.

Remember: Leeds United vs Newcastle United , 7:45pm BST, TV Listings, Full Preview.


Here's how we think the game will go down tonight...

James Mahoney: 2-0 Newcastle - I think Newcastle will have too much for Leeds. After Newcastle’s shock defeat against Sheffield Wednesday they will be fired up and Leeds will suffer because of that. I can see the game going to a similar script as it did in November. Newcastle will dominate the early possession and score just before the 30 minute mark. Leeds will have a go from then but it will be in vein as Newcastle finish the game off around the hour mark - Hopefully I am wrong. MOT

Ben Mallis: 2-0 Newcastle - The Magpies simply have too much talent for United and will use the motivation of automatic promotion to collect all three points. If Leeds can get anything from the fixture it will be a massive coup but I just can't see it.

Jack Dudley: 2-1 Newcastle - I think we may go there and throw caution to the wind knowing we're second best in most areas, at least I hope so. There's no point in sitting back and inviting pressure because Jonjo Shelvey will have an absolute field day in the middle.

Just don't think we've got quite enough and the Toon will want to finish top of this league.

Nestor Watach: 1-1 Draw - Newcastle are the best side in the division, but they often don’t show it, especially at home. Dwight Gayle’s injury is a blessing for Leeds, as they don’t have another forward who has shown a consistency in finding the back of the net, although the many players capable of scoring from midfield is something to envy. Leeds will need to build on the encouraging display against Preston. If we’re at our best, and the likes of Roofe and Pedrazza step up again, we’re more than capable of coming away with a point, or even three.

Anthony Linley: 1-1 Draw - With Newcastle stuttering a bit with a few unexpected defeats recently and our young team growing in experience since the last time we met, I feel this will be a much closer game than last time. I'm ever the pessimist though and feel we may not have enough for a win. I think Monk will go for a counter attacking style of play and maybe we can sneak a goal on the break. Points shared and a 1 all result. Chris Wood for Leeds
