I'm filming a report which you can see onBBC Look North at 18:30 on BBC One.
The Black Cats badly need a win [at Southampton], but I don't think they will get it. Southampton's recent form has been patchy but they remain hard to beat. I think it will end 1-1.
Newcastle have lost their last seven games, which is pathetic when you consider the size of that club. Their performances have been atrocious and I don't see how their form is going to improve on Saturday. I think it will be 2-0 to Leicester.See all of my predictions for this weekend's action.
Here's the top stories today:
Middlesbrough could be without full-back George Friend, who is serving the first suspension of his career after being sent off against Fulham.

Their only defeat at the Riverside Stadium since August was 1-0 against Leeds on 21 February.
Sunderland forward Steven Fletcher is doubtful with an ankle injury that also caused him to miss last weekend's draw with Stoke.
Midfielder Sebastian Larsson is available again after suspension. The Black Cats are looking to escape a battle with relegation asthey're currently 18th in the Premier League.
