Soccer – Relegation remains a concern for Colback


Newcastle United midfielder Jack Colback believes John Carver’s side need to win one of their last five matches if they are to avoid relegation this season.

Sunday’s meek 3-1 home defeat to Tottenham was Newcastle’s sixth successive loss and they are now only seven points above the bottom three.
Newcastle’s next match is against Swansea City on Saturday and they are 9/1 with Bet365 to edge to a 2-1 victory against Garry Monk’s side.
Colback said: “It is a difficult period and there’s no hiding place.
“If we are not careful we will get dragged into the relegation battle. It is a dangerous moment. We would be naive to think that we are out of it just yet but I think one win would do it.”
Newcastle are 50/1 to be relegated this season.
