Crystal Palace and Newcastle United will lock horns on Wednesday night when the two clubs do battle at Selhurst Park in a bid to reach the fourth round of the Capital One Cup.

The Magpies last major trophy came in 1955 when they won the FA Cup, beating Manchester City 3-1 at Wembley with Jackie Milburn grabbing one of the goals.

Neil Warnock's men have never won the FA or League Cup so the London club will be hoping this is the year they get their hands on the trophy.

Mixed emotions

Alan Pardew will be hoping for a change of fortune on Wednesday having seen his side hit rock bottom of the Premier league - accumulating just three points in total since the season began.

The Eagles have produced some fine form of late, having stunned Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday. They also earned a dramatic point at St James' Park last month when a last minute goal from Wilfred Zaha denied upcoming opponents Newcastle a much-needed win.

Under pressure

"This is one of the best football clubs in the country and I’m going to fight to try and keep it," under-pressure Pardew said following Saturday's 2-2 draw with Hull.

"It was important that I took the frustration from fans, in terms of standing on the sidelines, and I wasn't going to shirk away from that."

One more defeat for the North East club could see Pardew pushed through the exit door and the fans have clearly expressed their unhappiness.

Crystal Palace will be on a high at the moment after their big win on Merseyside, however I think Newcastle are due a turn in fortune and will squeeze out a victory.
