Mark Lawrenson has admitted he might have ‘slightly’ misjudged Wilder’s team this season.
Whilst they have only lost three of 14 Premier League matches so far, if you look at Mark Lawrenson’s predictions table after 14 matches (see below), the BBC Sport pundit has predicted them to lose 11 of those 14 matches, form which would have left them second bottom on only seven points if is forecasts had come true. As for Newcastle, so far Mark Lawrenson has forecast NUFC to have lost nine of their 14 matches and be on 13 points, three less than their actual total.
