This (below) is how the Championship form table looks ahead of Newcastle v Fulham.
Newcastle United’s respectable draw at Reading keeps them unbeaten in these past half dozen games (11 in total), with 12 points from a possible 18.
However, interesting to see that Saturday’s visitors are now top of this recent form league.
Their 95th minute goal to get a draw against Leeds on Tuesday, means they are unbeaten and have 14 points from the half dozen game period.
Recovering from their loss to Newcastle, Huddersfield bounced back with a win against Villa in midweek, meaning they are back above NUFC when it comes to recent form.
In these past six games, Newcastle have scored 10 goals and conceded six.
Whereas Fulham have scored 14 and leaked eight.
Fair to say though that looking at the results below, Newcastle have faced a much tougher run of games.
Brighton play tonight and with only three wins from their last six (four in the last nine) matches, they will be desperately looking for a win against Derby.
