Relegation Watch – Three Matches Remain

Sunderland – 9 wins, 8 draws – 35 points (-17 goal differential)
Hull City – 8 wins, 10 draws – 34 points (-23 goal differential)
——————Relegation Line——————————–
Newcastle – 6 wins, 13 draws – 31 points (-19 goal differential
Middlesbrough – 7 wins, 10 draws – 31 points (-26 goal differential)
West Bromwich – 7 wins 7 draws – 28 points (-31 goal differential)

Schedule for the remaining matches –

Sunderland – Bolton / Portsmouth / Chelsea

Hull City – Stoke City / Bolton / Manchester Utd.

Middlesbrough – Newcastle / Aston Villa / West Ham

Newcastle – Middlesbrough / Fulham / Aston Villa

West Bromwich – Wigan / Liverpool / Blackburn

The Black Cats really need a win this weekend. If they get one, they’re pretty much assured of staying up for next year. If they lose and Middlesbrough/Newcastle doesn’t end in a draw, they’ll only be one point clear with two matches remaining.  Needless to say, that’s not where they want to be.

    • Couldn’t agree more. Newcastle going down would make every Sunderland fan’s year. Big match is Monday – Newcastle/Middlesbrough. Loser almost assuredly goes down.
