WHO TURNS UP: Newcastle need big performance against Burnley

 

Steve Bruce's Newcastle United players need to turn up against Burnley as their battle against relegation begins to approach the deadline.

The Magpies are three points ahead of Fulham with a game in hand.

Burnley are just four points ahead of Newcastle ahead of the clash at Turf Moor. This may be one game Bruce's side see as a chance to pick up points.

The away side at Turf Moor have done well in recent weeks. Burnley have failed to win in their last six league games at home.

Each of the last five have been draws and they haven't drawn six consecutive home league games since 1936.

 

Relegation fears as real as ever for Newcastle ahead of Burnley game

 

However, the omens for Newcastle aren't that good despite Burnley's recent form at home.

Newcastle have amassed 29 points from 30 Premier League games this season.

Three of the last four times they'd won 29 or fewer points in the top flight, they've ended up being relegated.

After the 3-0 hammering against Brighton, that looked like it could be the case again.

An improved performance last time out against Spurs seen them pick up a point though.

Jamaal Lascelles will be missing though due to injury dealing the Magpies a massive blow.

Can they grab a vital three points away at Burnley? We'll see at 12pm on Sunday.
