Preview: Newcastle United vs. West Bromwich Albion

Sports Mole previews the Premier League clash between Newcastle United and West Bromwich Albion.

Newcastle United host West Bromwich Albion on Saturday afternoon hoping to secure their fourth successive win in the Premier League.

Manager Alan Pardew had come under pressure after a poor run in October, but his team have responded with three victories in a row to move into eighth position in the league table.

Pardew is unlikely to tinker with the lineup that started last week's 2-1 win over Norwich City.

West Bromwich Albion went through October without picking up a victory, but they have responded by going unbeaten in their last three matches.

However, the Baggies did let slip a 2-0 advantage against Aston Villa on Monday evening, leaving head coach Steve Clarke to consider changes for their visit to St James' Park.
