Newcastle will look to dent Everton's hopes of a top-four finish when the two sides meet in the English Premier League at St. James' Park on Tuesday night.
The Magpies have been up and down in the last few games, and find themselves in a nothing-to-play-for-really position of eighth with 46 points.
Everton, though, still have a realistic chance of creeping into the top four, particularly considering Arsenal's struggles, and Roberto Martinez will look at this game as the perfect opportunity to put further pressure on the likes of Arsenal and Tottenham.
To do that, though, Everton will have to find their away mojo again, having failed to pick up a single win outside Goodison Park since December.
"The away results have been disappointing but we have had to face three of the top five teams," Martinez said. "The margins at Stamford Bridge [against Chelsea] and White Hart Lane [against Tottenham] have been very small and we deserved a positive result.
"But overall you look at what we have done away from home this season and it has been impressive. Every time we have played away from home we haven't lost our identity.
"Clearly this week is going to be a real test in that respect because Newcastle are a team that is fighting to end the season strongly and the situation with the manager has given them a real focus."
The situation with the manager is of course in reference to the ban that Alan Pardew was handed following that unbelievable head-butt on Hull City player David Meyler not so long ago. That ban did not seem to affect the players too much at the weekend, though, with a late, late goal by Papiss Cisse giving the Magpies a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace.
"We tried to win the game for the full 90 minutes," Newcastle skipper Fabricio Coloccini said. "They [Crystal Palace] just came here to defend and didn't create too much.
"To be honest, when we got near the end I thought it was going to finish as a draw, so it was a very good result! We are happy because I thought we deserved the three points.
"We are happy because we won at home, Papiss scored and that is a good thing for him as well."

Team news: Newcastle: Loic Remy and Mathieu Debuchy remain sidelined for Newcastle along with Davide Santon, Gabriel Obertan and Ryan Taylor.
Everton: Captain Phil Jagielka is fit but it remains to be seen if Martinez will risk the influential defender. Steven Pienaar is still ruled out and is not expected to return until the middle of next month. Darron Gibson, Arouna Kone and Bryan Oviedo are long-term casualties.
"Phil Jagielka is medically fully fit," Martinez revealed. "We are going to a make a decision on him tomorrow. If we can get Phil fit for Tuesday or Sunday [at Fulham] it's going to be a big bonus. You always miss your club captain.
"He is such a big influence that we have missed him. But there is the reality that we have been able to win football games without him and that's credit to the players who have come in. That's what you need from a squad because over the course of the season you are going to get injuries and suspensions."
Expected lineups: Newcastle: Krul; Yanga-Mbiwa, Coloccini, Williamson, Dummett; Gouffran, Tiote, Anita, Sissoko, De Jong, Cisse.
Everton: Howard; Coleman, Stones, Distin, Baines; McCarthy, Barry; Mirallas, Osman, McGeady; Lukaku.
Prediction: 2-1 to Everton
