THE PREDICTION

Newcastle travel to East London on the back of two straight wins to nil but they have not scored many goals away from home this season. Meanwhile, five of West Ham's last seven Premier League games have seen fewer than three goals so this could be a low-scoring affair between two mid-table teams.
