THE BUILD UP
Welcome to this evening’s live blog with Sun Sport.
And what a CRUCIAL one we have for you tonight.
This is a cup final. This is a six-pointer. A relegation battle. A huge game.
A win here for either team could dictate the rest of their season.
Newcastle are SIX points behind safety and a loss today would leave them languishing at the bottom.
It is vital they get points on the board to help lure players in the January transfer window.
The influx of money from the new ownership could be useless if they can’t draw match winners through the door in January.
Norwich could climb to level points with Leeds with a win tonight.
It would take a 12-0 win to get them out of the relegation zone but it’ll be a big step to safety.
