Derby take on Newcastle on Saturday 10th September, 2016, with kickoff at 17:30. This match is currently being shown LIVE on Sky Sports 1.
This is not a derby, but a match between Derby and Newcastle, two of the biggest clubs in the Championship this term. The Magpies rock up with a Champions League winner in their managerial hot seat too, which has certainly set a high bar in terms of expectations, but then again, if Rafa Benitez can’t win promotion with the squad he has then maybe they should take his medal away.
Whoever wins, you know there is going to be some quality football to watch this evening, and it’ll be a good alternative to the hyperbole from Anfield too.
