The Sky Sports pundit saying that he was finally giving up backing against Newcastle and tipping them to beat Reading, as Rafa’s team ‘look like champions’..
David Prutton 6 March 2017:
“I tipped Brighton to beat Newcastle and Newcastle won.
“I tipped Huddersfield to beat Newcastle and Newcastle won.
“Sorry Toon fans, I’m tipping Newcastle this time (to beat Reading) as they look like champions.”
However, that didn’t last long…
Newcastle of course got a decent draw at Reading rather than his predicted 1-0 win but with Newcastle returning to St James Park, David Prutton is at it again.
Whilst tipping both Brighton and Huddersfield to win this weekend, Prutton has gone for a 2-2 draw against Fulham.
He’ll get it right one of these days!
David Prutton talking to Sky Sports Thursday 9 March 2017:
“This should be a good game with the way that Fulham approach it.
“They have a lot of energy and pace in the wide areas, and in Tom Cairney have someone who showed his quality with the late goal against Leeds in midweek.
“Newcastle have had a good 10 days with wins at Brighton and Huddersfield and then drawing Reading, but I think the points will be shared on Saturday.”
Prutton’s predictions for teams in the top six this weekend:
Brighton 2 Derby 1 (Fri 7.45pm)
Aston Villa 0 Sheff Wed 1 (Sat 3pm)
Brentford 1 Huddersfield 2 (Sat 3pm)
Leeds 2 QPR 2 (Sat 3pm)
Newcastle 2 Fulham 2 (Sat 3pm)
