NEWCASTLE have tumbled headlong into the Premier League relegation dogfight and desperately need a win over Wolves to ease the mounting pressure on boss Steve Bruce.

The Magpies crashed 3-1 at Old Trafford last weekend to make it just two wins in their last 16 games, which is relegation form in anyone's book.

Third-bottom Fulham have cut the gap on them to just three points so there's now little margin for error as Bruce somehow tries to navigate a way through the crisis that has engulfed him.

After drawing a blank in five successive games, the Magpies have at least found their shooting boots again, scoring in five of their last six matches.

But they need to tighten up at the back after losing at least two goals in their last four games, with Wolves finally hitting form again after a slump of their own.

Nuno Espirito Santo's men are unbeaten in their last four league outings, winning three, so they will scent blood on Tyneside.

How the bookies view it

Newcastle are 11/4 outsiders at Unibet, which looks a decent price despite their poor form. Wolves are a best 24/19 at SBK while the draw pays 40/17 with the same firm.

Recent head to head

The last four meetings have all ended in 1-1 draws so it might pay to have a punt on a repeat of that score at 515/100 with TonyBet. It was also nip and tuck in the four clashes before that, with each side claiming two wins apiece. A goal from Jonny helped Wolves come from behind to claim a point on their last trip to St James' Park (below).

Players to watch

I flagged up Allan Saint-Maximin as Newcastle's biggest threat at Old Trafford and he bagged their goal at odds of 7/1. The Frenchman is shorter here at a best 19/4 with Unibet but that's still a decent price.

Pedro Neto has looked Wolves' biggest threat in the absence of injured top scorer Raul Jimenez and the winger is 14/5 with Unibet to score here.

William Hill are also offering 3/4 on both those players have over one shot on target combined, which looks a good option for accas.

Anything else catch the eye?

Games involving Wolves have been dull as dishwater of late so it could pay to bet against goals. Both teams to score has come up just twice in their last six games and backing against it here pays 13/15 with SBK, which is decent for accumulators.

The score has been level at half-time in six of Wolves' last seven games and this one could be cagey too. The half-time stalemate pays evens with TonyBet.

I'd be surprised if either side won comfortably so a one-goal winning margin looks decent at 6/5 with TonyBet
