Newcastle fans prepare for title decider

Newcastle fans are beginning to arrive at St James' Park for Sunday's title deciding clash with Barnsley.

Rafa Benitez's side must better Brighton's result against Aston Villa at Villa Park if they're to win the league.

It is a sell-out, 52 thouands plus crowd at St James' Park for Sunday's lunchtime fixture.

Whatever the outcome of Sunday's game, Newcastle will play Premier League football next season.

The only question that remains is whether or not the Magpies will be promoted as league Champions.

Hartlepool United have been relegated to the National League despite be a 2-1 win at home to Doncaster Rovers.

Pools have never been relegated to the non-league in their 109-year history, despite coming close a number of times in the past.

The relegation comes just days after Gary Coxall resigned as Hartlepool Chairman, saying continuing in the role "would divide the club".

Pam Duxbury was appointed Chief Executive of the club following Coxall's resignation and issued the following rallying cry to supporters ahead of the match against Doncaster Rovers.

I can only thank all of you for your continued support, and in particular, our amazing away support.

Poolies are truly the best fans in any league and all the clubs I have visited have been welcoming and regard our fans very highly.

Whatever the outcome on Saturday, we are better together."

– Pam Duxbury
