Newcastle v Everton Match – New Date Announced
The Newcastle v Everton match which was due to be played this Sunday 9th March, has now got a confirmed replacement date.
The blue half of Merseyside have FA Cup involvement this weekend which led to the cancellation of the United match and yet another free Saturday/Sunday for fans/players/manager.
Thanks to consecutive victories, Newcastle have closed to within five points of Everton and are only two behind Manchester United, who United also still have to face at St.James’ Park.
Both these teams do have a game in hand on Newcastle but depending on how things work out in the FA Cup, Europa League qualification could go down as far as seventh place in the Premier League.
Why the match is taking place on a Tuesday rather than our usual midweek Wednesday slot is anybody’s guess, the club having confirmed that the match won’t now be broadcast leave on TV – which takes out the obvious as to why it might have been decided for that date.
Newcastle play Saturday to Saturday either side of the Everton clash so no clues there, while Everton play the Saturday before and then not until the Sunday following their appointment on Tyneside.
