Newcastle United fans unsure if Aston Villa will help title quest

The tussle between Brighton and Hove Albion and Newcastle United to win the Sky Bet Championship has taken all sorts of twists and turns this season.

While the Seagulls currently lead the Toon Army by a point, those from the south coast appeared to have had the title sewn up following their promotion-clinching victory over Wigan Athletic, though the recent loss to Bristol City has afforded the Magpies a chance.

Indeed, when Newcastle managed to beat both Brighton and Huddersfield Town consecutively, it appeared as though Rafa Benitez’s side would be taking the crown.

Still, both sides are in with a chance heading into the final game this weekend, with the Tyneside giants hosting Barnsley and Brighton traveling to Aston Villa.

Interestingly enough, Newcastle are relying on old rivals Villa on getting a result against their title rivals in their quest to win the league.

With that in mind, supporters online have taken to Twitter to question whether or not the Midlands giants will be able to do Newcastle a favour.
