Mark Lawrenson reveals latest Newcastle United scoreline prediction ahead of Leicester City clash
Writing in his weekly predictions column for BBC Sport, pundit Mark Lawrenson backed a 2-0 win for the visitors.
Justifying his prediction, the ex-Liverpool defender claimed: "Newcastle got a really good point against Liverpool, when Magpies boss Steve Bruce was just coming under a bit of pressure.
"But this is Leicester away, and we know how good the Foxes are on the road. Jamie Vardy should start too, after only coming on as a substitute against Crystal Palace earlier in the week."
Meanwhile, Lawro's opponent for the midweek fixtures, The Farm front-man Peter Hooton, opted for a 2-1 Foxes win.
Last time the two sides met, back on New Year's Day last year, Newcastle were comfortable beaten 3-0 at St James' Park, with former Magpies star Ayoze Perez scoring the opening goal.
