    Nothing To Choose Between Newcastle And Leeds In The First Half

    Two promotion hopefuls are involved in what promises to be a pivotal Championship game on Sky Sports on Friday evening as Newcastle take on Leeds and there doesn't look to be a great deal to choose between the pair at St James' Park...

    • Newcastle are unbeaten in 5 against Leeds since 2002 - Won 4, Drawn 1
    • Dwight Gayle scored both goals when Newcastle beat Leeds 2-0 at Elland Road in November
    • Leeds have gone 13 away league games without a clean sheet

    Tips Half Time Draw    Best Bet @ 6 / 5

    Recent Wobbles

    Newcastle start the match as 8/15 favourites after losing just two of their past sixteen matches but it is telling that those two losses have come in their past six outings (won two, drawn two), including a 2-1 defeat at Sheffield Wednesday last time out.

    The Magpies were again slow to get going at Hillsborough, where they failed to score a first-half goal for a fifth time in six league outings, and that half-time draw looks like a very decent option at 6/5 with Betfred this week.

    Leeds won't want to give too much away after they halted a two-match losing run by beating Preston 3-0 at Elland Road last time out and they will recognise the importance of avoiding defeat to consolidate their position in the play-offs as they bid to return to the Premier League for the first time since the 2003/04 campaign.
    Match Odds:

    Home And Away

    Gary Monk's men have struggled on the road though as they have won only two of their nine away games since Boxing Day (drew three, lost four) and it is difficult to back them at 5/1 on Friday as they have lost all three of their matches played at top-four teams this season.

    Newcastle have been impressive at home as they have lost just once at St James' Park since Boxing Day (won six, drawn two) but they have faltered against the better teams in the division, losing three of their five at home against the top-seven sides.

    Goalscorers And Injury Woes

    It seems likely that Rafa Benitez will have to do without top goalscorer Dwight Gayle as he suffered a recurrence of a hamstring injury but Newcastle have taken 14 points from the six games he has missed during 2017, with Matt Ritchie weighing in with his fair share of goals.

    Ritchie has scored nine in his last ten appearances at St James' Park in all competitions and he is 6/1 to score first (Paddy Power) when bidding to get on the scoresheet for a third home game in succession.

    Newcastle do have worries at the back though as influential centre back Ciaran Clark is missing and the Magpies have failed to win five of the nine games he has missed this season (won four, drawn one, lost four), with Chris Wood potentially in a position to take advantage.

    Wood has enjoyed the best season of his career after notching 24 goals in 37 league outings so far and he is 7/1 (Sky Bet) to score the opening goal of a league game for a fifteenth time this term.
