Ahead of Sunday's clash between Newcastle and Tottenham, Eddie Howe has admitted that the match is going to be "huge" for the Toons.
Both clubs are in the race to secure a spot in the Champions League places with no fewer than eight matches left to play.
While Newcastle sit in fourth position in the league with 56 points and a game in hand, Tottenham are in fifth place with 53 points.
Asked about Sunday's match at St James Park, Howe said: "It's a huge game for us, no denying that at this stage of the season with the games running out and playing one of our competitors.
"A big moment in our season. We're pleased to be at home, we hope we can feel the force of the crowd and we certainly need everyone united in the game which I'm sure we will be.
"Hopefully we can respond to last week's disappointment. A lot will depend on this week coming up.
"We've got Tottenham on Sunday, a three-game week, they're huge moments with nine points to play for.
"We want to try to maximise that time."
Both Newcastle and Tottenham are hoping to bounce back on Sunday after failing to seal victory last weekend against Aston Villa and Bournemouth respectively.
The Toons won the last meeting by 2-1, albeit Spurs have the better record on head-to-head.
