Newcastle v Cardiff Preview

FA Cup | Saturday 4 January 2014 | St. James' Park | 17:00

To Win (90mins)
Newcastle 6/10 
Draw 28/10
Cardiff 47/10

Newcastle’s recent good run of form came to an abrupt halt as an early red card for Mathieu Debuchy and a late penalty brought about their downfall against West Bromwich Albion.

In one of four all-Premier League encounters, they will face up to Cardiff who have a new face in the dugout.

Ole Gunnar Solsjaer with his cherub-like looks will take charge against the Magpies in a game that is of no importance in the chairman’s eyes.

Priority number one is to keep Cardiff up, and a long cup run will no doubt put a drain on his already depleted squad.

Betting Prediction: NEWCASTLE 6/10
Knowing Champions League is probably beyond them, Alan Pardew may choose to focus on the FA Cup, and Newcastle are tipped here at 6/10.
