Toon v Hammers - Saturday's Preview


TOON v HAMMERS - THE FORM AND FACTS

Newcastle entertain lowly West Ham on Saturday desperate to regain some pride after Wednesday night's 1-5 humbling by Birmingham. 

It will be Newcastle's 39th match of the season (due to involvement in the InterToto Cup), more than any other Premiership side. Glenn Roeder faces one of his former clubs.

The Magpies are unbeaten in six Premiership games against West Ham. The Tyneside club are also aiming for their second 'double' of the season having won home and away against Spurs. 

West Ham seek a first away win of the season. They're three points behind fourth bottom Wigan.

The Upton Park club have not scored in nine successive away games in the Premiership.

Referee Uriah Rennie is long remembered for sending off Alan Shearer in the first game of the 1999/2000 season against Aston Villa when he didn't even touch the defender.
