Newcastle United vs Huddersfield Town

Salzburg's Valon Berisha celebrates after scoring during the Europa League Round of 16 first leg football match between Borussia Dortmund and FC Salzburg

Ayoze Perez proved the matchwinner as Newcastle United defeated Huddersfield Town 1-0 on Saturday.

The game will be shown in 117 countries but will not be available live on TV in the UK.

The weather is set to be miserable in Newcastle this weekend with a high chance of showers and a temperature looking to be around 4 degrees - so rug up warm and pack a brolly!

But boss David Wagner insists his side still holds the upper hand in their quest for another season in the top flight.

"It's not that you finish the season here, so we have to be sure we play well, we get three points and after, still we have to keep fighting".

"I said it is more hard for us, but you have to give credit to them, because they are both good teams and they know what they want and what they have to do".

"It was an important game and we needed to win", Benitez said after the match.


"But during the week, they were training well and you could see the competition between players and you could see that they understand what we have to do as a team".

"Newcastle United does feel like a stable club at the minute". We know our position and for us, it's a massive game.

And Rafa Benitez's side are in good form since the start of the year with captain Jamaal Lascelles particularly impressive at the heart of the defence.

On loan Chelsea winger Kenedy joined Newcastle on the final day of the recently concluded transfer window, and has so far impressed everyone with his pace and ability to open up opposition's defense.

Aaron Mooy and Philip Billing have both returned to full training for the Terriers after picking up minor injuries during the global break while Terence Kongolo and Jon Gorenc Stanković are also back in contention.

It looked for a long time as though Newcastle would be frustrated at St James' Park, missing a number of early opportunities to allow the visitors to come into the game in the second half.
