Chelsea are a point ahead and face Wigan at home at 3pm.
First though, Andre realises we 'have to do our job' against a Newcastle team rejuvented by January signings and arriving at the Lane with successive wins in the bag.
"Now, every game is important," said Andre. "There are lots of games still to be played, but every single point can make a difference.
“Ideally, this is a game where we can continue our objectives, a win moves us into third place and we can then wait for the results. That’s our focus for the weekend.
“First we have to do our job, that’s the most important thing and the players are in the right frame of mind to achieve that.”
We have the chance to climb over Chelsea into third place in the Premier League - even if it's just for a few hours - as we take on the Toon in early kick-off at 12.45pm.
