Good afternoon all and welcome to this ‘Game On’ article which will cover our trip to Hull today.
A last minute win against Aston Villa last time out stopped the rot for United but only time will tell if that victory was a rare bright spot in what has been a poor 2014 or whether we have genuniely turned the corner.
The big team news ahead of the match for Newcastle is that Fabricio Coloccini will miss the game on compassionate grounds after travelling back to Argentina following a family bereavement. For the rest of the early team news check out the match preview and for full team news check the bottom of this article just after 2pm.
The match is not being broadcast live here in the UK due to the regulation kick-off of 3pm although a few overseas broadcasters are showing the game so if you do happen to come across a reliable stream then please leave a link to it in the ‘comments’ section below.
We’ve not beaten Hull since 1998 and they’ve been playing some decent stuff of late although they have struggled in front of their own fans. Although not safe just yet it surely won’t be lomg before Hull can plan for another season in the Premier League. Our job today at least is to make them wait a little longer!
Howay the lads!
