Newcastle United have now reached that time of the season.

It is the crunch as separated by only seven days, the Magpies face Brighton, Huddersfield and Reading, all away from home.

Three teams that have been in the top six pretty much all season and at least the first two of those looking very much like they will be lasting the course out until the final games of the season.

So up against the clubs currently first, third and fifth, what would you see as the minimum number of points that could equal success for Newcastle United?

Naturally, nine is what we would all like but would anything below that be classed as failure.

So please vote below and let us know how many points from these three matches are needed for us to be relatively happy come next Tuesday night.
