THE PREDICTION

Rochdale reached the fifth round of the cup last year, taking Tottenham to a replay, and there is potential for an upset here. Newcastle have lost four of their last five games and have been hit by a host of injuries, particularly in defence, which should see room for both teams scoring here.
