Sunderland will take on Norwich City away from home at Carrow Road in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.
On the same day, Newcastle will face Swansea City at St. James’ Park in the league.
The former Scotland international believes that Newcastle fans will want Sunderland to pick up all three points from the encounter at Carrow Road, as a win for the home team would send them and the Black Cats down to the Championship.
For just about the 1st time ever. Newcastle fans want a Sunderland win v Norwich.— Don Hutchison (@donhutch4) April 11, 2016
A Norwich win sends BOTH down
Aston Villa are rooted to the foot of the Premier League table at the moment and are virtually down.
Newcastle and Sunderland are in the bottom three, and a win for Norwich on Saturday afternoon is going to make it immensely tough for them to climb out of the relegation zone.
A win for the Black Cats is certainly going to help the Magpies, but only if they are able to pick up all three points from their Premier League match against Swansea at St. James’ Park.
