A 1-0 win over fellow relegation candidates Burnley at the weekend saw Newcastle bag their first three-point haul this season after failing to do so in their first 14 league outings.


The Magpies climbed to 19th in the top flight table and the fans, new owners and the players are all hoping they can claw their way out of the drop zone in the remaining games of the season under new boss Eddie Howe.



However, former top flight star O’Hara believes Newcastle will not be able to win enough games to maintain their top flight status this season, having taken 15 attempts to get their first win in the league.


O’Hara admitted that all the clubs in and around the relegation zone have a chance to survive in the Premier League but stressed it is going to be really difficult for the Tyneside giants.



Asked whether he thinks Newcastle have enough quality in their ranks to avoid relegation, O’Hara told talkSPORT: “I have said Newcastle are going down [to the Championship].


“So, I do not want to now say that they can stay up.



“They have all got a chance, [but] it is going to be difficult for them.


“I do not think they are going to win enough games.”


Newcastle will return to Premier League action on Sunday and will travel to the Midlands to take on a Leicester City, who are also struggling with their form at present.
