Newcastle will be looking to make it back-to-back victories in the Premier League when they welcome Brentford to St James’ Park for their Matchday 10 tie on Saturday. Newcastle United hit the ground running with a 2-0 win over Nottingham Forest on the opening day, but they then failed to win any of their subsequent six league matches. They however got back to winning ways with a 4-1 win over Fulham at away last time out. The victory saw the Magpies climb into eighth-place in the league standings and they will be looking to steady their table climb with another positive result on Saturday. Meanwhile Brentford have made a mixed start to the season, winning two, losing two and drawing four of their opening eight games of the season, and they are coming off a 0-0 draw at Bournemouth. The Bees are tenth in the standings with ten points and trail Newcastle, who are in seventh place, by a point. Therefore they will be looking to climb over their hosts with maximum points in this clash. Thomas Frank’s side however, picked up just one point from their two matches against Newcastle last season and they will be aware of a tough this fixture will be.
