Newcastle utility Connor Watson concedes the Knights must win this weekend against Parramatta or their season is over.
The Knights have been on a helpless slide down the ladder after being a top 4 contender earlier in the season.
“We are getting to the point of the season now where it’s all on the line,” Watson said.
“Definitely, it’s now or never. We lose and we are probably out of the race for the finals.”
Watson was quick to remind everyone that the Knights started their previous winning streak against the Eels.
“We were in a great position there a month ago and just had to close out a few of those games and we didn’t and now we are sort of do-or-die which is a bit of pressure. This is why you play footy, to make the finals.
“We still have an opportunity to do that and even though we have been in a bit of a form slump, it’s only going to take one game to turn it around.
“We did that last time against Parramatta so hopefully we can do that again and go on a five game winning streak and make the finals.”
