AFC Bournemouth host Newcastle United at the Vitality Stadium on Wednesday night looking for a much-needed win to ease their relegation concerns. Eddie Howe’s side currently sit in the relegation zone with only seven games of their season remaining. Newcastle, meanwhile, are effectively safe with just one point needed to reach the 40 points.

Ahead of the game, Sky Sports pundit Charlie Nicholas has made a prediction for the game.

“Newcastle have been ever so good with what Steve Bruce has done. They did get a reality check against Manchester City and tried to squeeze them. Dwight Gayle missed the chance at 0-1 and that was unfortunate, but they will take pride from the way they performed and defended. Bournemouth will be open and have to go after it. Brighton have created a gap, but what does a draw do for Bournemouth now? They have awkward games coming up too,” said Nicholas.

“I think Bournemouth will edge it. You keep looking at the bottom lot and no teams are getting anywhere, but because of what is happening at Watford and West Ham, Bournemouth will know they cannot keep passing up these opportunities.”

Nicholas thinks Bournemouth will win the game with a 2-1 score.
